Learn About Mushrooms!

Mushroom cultivation ranges in difficulty, so if you have never grown mushrooms before, start with something easy, like shiitake on hardwood logs, king stropharia on wood chips in the landscape and garden, or oyster mushrooms indoors on agricultural byproducts soaked in hot water. Once you have luck with any of those three try other species using the same method. We have over 150 strains in our library so pick a method to learn from and have some fun cultivating mushrooms!
