What About Growing Other Mushrooms?

April 22, 2022

If you fancy branching out, here’s a list of of other mushrooms to choose from.
Remember, just like us, they each have their own peculiarities and need to be
treated differently. They all vary in ease of cultivation and what’s needed
across their growing cycle.
Unfortunately, we don’t have the time to discuss each one, but have a look
through and see if you recognize any of them or if any take your eye. All of
them can be cultivated either indoors, outdoors, or both.

The list comes from the great Paul Stamets who has spent years
experimenting and trying them all. So you can be pretty sure if he can grow
them, so can you.
