what is the best book for growing mushrooms
    #11242657 - 10/13/09 11:22 PM (8 years, 11 months ago)

i know im gonna get a hundred responses, but i would like to know what book you guys think is best to study.  i want a reason why it is good, i dont want to hear just because.  preferably one that deals with growing larger quantities

:pm: me if you have questions about lasers

Although i may advise others in a general way regarding all types of mushroom grows, and may even post question from other forums about growing "active" mushrooms, i only grow non-"active" mushrooms and edibles.

The best book I've found is the "search" bar... Seriously... Not to sound like a dick.. But anytime I have an issue I am searching and finding my answer...
Right now I am searching different tea teks and recipes with mushrooms... ;P I LOVE THE SEARCH!!!

Own it. It will help you to start out great. They don't explain bulk, per say, BUT if you use your mind the authors are actually showing you how to grow bulk (substrates, cloning, etc) just in a nonchalant to avoid legal actions.

And yes, I agree with Slimz, shroomery is better than any book. But it doesn't hurt to have some hands on literature around.

The Mushroom Cultivator has been an invaluable source of reference for years. From agar work to bulk compost.:thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:

There is also many books that can have differently formated information, never limit yourself on information. As much reference material is out there, nothing outdoes the thread search.
