Not many individuals realize that it is essentially really easy to grow mushrooms yourself, instead of choosing to spend your money at your local superstore on mushroom species inexpensively imported from foreign nations where they are grown in large quantities. The store variety do not have much of a product life and the mushrooms do not truly enjoy being packed in plastic, so by learning to grow mushrooms at home, not only are you going to have fresher longer, lasting mushrooms, but they may also most likely taste stronger and more mushroom-like as the store kinds have a tendency to have a more watered-down flavour. Another benefit of growing mushrooms yourself is that you aren't restricted to the variety displayed in the shops - which sometimes is composed of button mushrooms, Shiitake, Oyster and Portobello. Though Oyster mushrooms are seen to be the simplest kind of mushroom to cultivate, you may attempt to try and grow something that most shops won't ever sell. The Lions Mane mushroom is a bit harder to grow and yet has a taste which is similar to that of lobster, and it is extremely costly to get from consultant shops.
