Easy edibles?
    #11364811 - 11/01/09 09:25 PM (8 years, 4 months ago)

What are some recommended easy edibles to grow indoors, a la cubes? I've read a lot about cube growth, but I'd prefer not to get in any trouble and would like to try my hand at growing some edibles and selling them at a local farmer's market. I'm looking for a good indoor grow that I could make a few bucks off of to at least make the hobby tenable for a poor student. I would be most interested in any species that are pretty tolerant to room temps, as I'd be growing them inside, like in trays in a monotub-style terrarium (with perlite for humidity). Coir would be a desirable substrate, just because the coir (along with the other things, except the terrarium which I can build easily) is something I have laying around my apartment.

Well, I would say Oysters are quite easy to grow... outdoors that is. Inside you would have to have a bit of an elaborate setup and I assume your budget is pretty tight.

I heard someone say recently though that oysters(pink) can be done Mono-tub style. Leave the Polyfill in for colonization, and just pull it out to induce fruiting air exchange(which they need MASSIVE amounts of). Only other thing you would need is a good lighting setup.

From what I gather, Pinhead initiation is most responsive exposed to 2,000 lux/hour for 12 hours a day. Grow-lux type flourecent lighting is recommended. Otherwise diffuse natural light is sufficient but might not be the best unless you can get em in a bright room or outside.

That light recommendation goes on through the entire maturation process.

Otherwise, I cant really say from firsthand experience. Oysters are all the Gourmet ground I have covered. I think you could do Monotubs of Portabello and Button mushrooms with no problem. That is my next undertaking in the edible world.

oysters, they will grow on just any substrate and are simple to grow.

One of these days all the answers will be revealed until then we learn from each other!
