How to grow Oyster Mushrooms?
I am thinking of posting some tips and tricks of what I've learned about growing oyster mushrooms on this blog!
Here a few things you should be aware of:
Things (not) to do in your growroom:
Be clean and healthy! This is very important. Be clean when you work with your spawn and whenever you enter your grow rooms. An entire crop in your grow room can be wiped out by a single fly!
You are risking your mushroom crop when you walk into your grow room with a cold!
Make sure you have cleaned the soles of your shoes when entering your grow room!
Never use any chemicals in your room while you have mushrooms growing there!
You will loose your mushroom crop!
Never allow any visitors in your grow rooms without making sure that they are clean! (You can even go and take a shower with them just to make sure! - I have done this but that's a story for another day and another blog...)
Make sure the temp. inside your room is constant.
Make sure you keep a high level of humidity in your room.
Make sure you are wearing a mask when spawning your growing substrate.
(I'll post more about sterilizing and spawing your growing substrate in a later post.)
Have a great mushroom on me!
