Is growing mushroom indoors possible? The answer to that is yes, it is indeed possible. Growing mushroom indoors means that you need to know which types of fungi are best grown inside the house. This is a complete guide on growing your own mushrooms in the comfort of your own home. While this is a subject talked about by many gardeners, these tips should help you jumpstart your very own mushroom collection at home!
When growing mushroom indoors, remember that only certain types of mushrooms will thrive indoors. Some popular types of indoor mushrooms include shiitake mushrooms, oyster mushrooms and white button mushrooms. These types have been known to thrive and grow even inside the house. You can find spores of these mushrooms from good dealers online. Do your research and find those that are reputable so that you can acquire your mushrooms from them.
For a while I have seen indoor mushroom growing kits in catalogs and have wished to try one. Each year I'd put them on the original order form and unavoidably, as I totalled the list, it was more than I needed to spend, and the mushroom kit was scratched. This winter I made up my mind to order one kit simply to give it try. It was only $15.95, so why not?
My first mistake was letting the boxes sit on my desk for weeks. After I opened them up and read the instructions, I was advised to start straight away. I thought I may have screwed the entire project up, but I made a decision to give it a try. I had 2 oyster mushroom kits, one blue oyster mushroom and a shiitake kit.
