7 Easy Steps to Grow Fresh Mushrooms at Home  

Select a mushroom variety suitable for home cultivation. Popular options include oyster mushrooms, button mushrooms, and shiitake mushrooms.

1.  Choose the Right Variety

2.  Prepare the Growing Substrate

Mushrooms grow on a substrate which can be made from various materials such as straw, sawdust, or compost. Sterilize the substrate to remove any competing organisms that could hinder mushroom growth.

3.  Do Inoculation

Once the substrate is prepared, inoculate it with mushroom spawn. You can purchase mushroom spawn from local suppliers or online stores. Spread the spawn evenly throughout the substrate.

4.  Incubation Stage

Place the inoculated substrate in a warm, dark environment to allow the mycelium to colonize the substrate. Maintain optimal temperature and humidity levels for your chosen mushroom variety.

5.  Fruiting It

After the mycelium has fully colonized the substrate, introduce the substrate to light and fresh air to initiate fruiting. Maintain proper humidity levels by misting the growing area regularly.

6.  Harvesting the Produce

Harvest the mushrooms when they reach the desired size. Use a clean knife to cut them close to the substrate surface. Reaping should be done gently to avoid damaging the mycelium.

7.  Repeat the Process

After harvesting, the substrate may produce additional flushes of mushrooms. Continue to provide proper care and maintenance to encourage more fruiting cycles.
