Actually, I'd say in some respects oysters and shiitake are easier to grow than cubensis. Infact, I'd say that certain oyster strains defy any attempt to *stop* them from fruiting...they'll take a lot of abuse.

As for growing in a closet....do you really think that your closet has room for 100 6-7lb shiitake blocks so that you have a reasonable chance of actually having enough fresh shrooms to sell at a weekly farmer's market?

Also, be advised that in some places you'll need to adhere to farming regulations (whatever they might be). And if you plan on growing organically, you can't call stuff organic with another certification in a lot of places.

Just FYI.

Oysters go for maybe $7/lb where I live. So you'd probably have to sell about 20lbs/week to net $100.

The mushroom business is hard....you gotta do the volume.

Don't you need some certificates or something like that in order to sell mushrooms ? Or insurances? :confused:

Well, the legislation varies depending on where you live. Check with your local department of agriculture. Also, you often require certification if you wish to promote your products as "organic".

As for insurance, any business should be carrying business liability insurance :-p
