How to grow mushrooms outside
How to grow mushrooms outside
Portobello, Shitake, White Cap, Oyster. These are just a few of the many types of mushrooms available in your market. True that you buy most mushrooms in the market but would it provide you greater pleasure when you grow them yourself?

Taking a look at those white globs would make you believe that it might be too difficult to grow, much more cultivate mushrooms. But then again, looks can be tricking. And it sure does! Mushrooms are among those things that can surely capture your imagination. They might seem delicate to look at, but no professional hand is really needed to grow these infants. 

What sort of mushroom do you want to grow?

This is a vital part of the process if you want to cultivate your own mushroom garden. The reason that you need to understand the type of mushroom is each mushroom has different requirements. Some mushrooms are much better used as dowels and other need to be generates. But for newbies, it is suggested that you use mushroom growing sets so it would be easy to do, plus, this can become a little job over fall or spring. 

Another element that you need to consider is the substrate where you are going to "plant" your mushroom generates. 

Log Substrate 

Some mushrooms are better planted on logs such as willow, oak and beech. These consist of the oyster mushroom and the shitake mushroom. You do not plant directly onto the logs, actually. You need dowels for that. These dowels are filled with the mycelium, the part of the mushroom from where the mushrooms that we eat spring out. These dowels are then placed into the log, sealed with some wax to prevent any contamination, stored in a dark and dry place up until the mushrooms are ready to be harvested. The logs should be protected from direct sunshine along with strong winds. So, much better cover them in a black polythene bag. It would take around a year and a half for the fungis to colonize the whole log. 

Straw Substrate 

Perhapsone of the simplest substrate to deal with is the straw. Initially, you need to disinfect the straw. Do this by pouring boiling water on the straw. Once the straw has actually cooled spray the generate, which is consisted of in the mushroom set. Make certain that you shake the bag with the straw and the generate to spread out the generate uniformly. Seal the bag. Place this is a dark and wet place. The mushrooms can be collected in about 6 weeks. 

This is one of the standard ways of growing mushrooms. You use grain spawn to inoculate the mushrooms into the manure or soil substrate.
