Growing edible mushrooms can be a fun and educational way to get high quality, delicious and prized mushroom varieties without spending a lot of money. The mushroom spores and spore syringes are typically much less expensive, as well as easier to store and to ship, compared to the actual mushrooms themselves.
Here are a few quick tips from premium spore syringe retailers to help you grow the highest quality edible mushrooms at home:
- It’s essential to first of all know what type of edible mushroom you should grow. Shiitake and Portobello mushrooms are known to bee among the most well-known and delicious edible mushrooms in the world. However, other varieties can also be considered depending on your taste and preference, including Enoki, Morel, Porcini and Chanterelle mushrooms.
- You have to make sure that you buy high quality mushroom spores stored securely inside well-designed mushroom spore syringes. If you don’t plan to grow all your mushrooms at once, this part of the process is very important, as the selection of a quality spore syringe can lead to your mushrooms being stored effectively for much longer.
- Selecting the right substrate for your edible mushrooms is also important. Although the rules differ in the case of each mushroom species in part, you’ll find that hardwoods like oak, maple and birch can make for exceptional substrates. For best results, you can mix soy hulls with various types of hardwood sawdust in different ratios, so you can achieve an optimal yield.
