Mushrooms are one of nature’s healthiest foods, but they are intimidating to grow on our own. Shirley Bovshow shows how kits make it easy to grow mushrooms at home year-round and indoors.
There are many different types and brands of mushroom growing kits available online so feel free to explore! Today we demonstrated using: “Back to the Roots” organic mushroom grow kits and Dave Mushroom Farm.
- Mushrooms grow in nutrient-rich soil and are a great source of Vitamin C.
- Grab a kit that contains mushroom spores that have already been inoculated and are ready for growing.
- Put the kit in a container with a little water. Cover with a paper towel that has been misted with water. Place in a cool room or area and make sure to spray the paper towel twice a day to keep the environment humid.
- In just a few days you’ll see mushrooms. It takes about 12 – 15 days before they are ready to harvest.
