Can i grow regular button mushrooms at home??
    #1605795 - 06/03/03 08:00 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

Just wondering. Whats the level of difficulty? I never see spores for them. I have seen portabela kits but there supposed to be really hard to grow. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks!

Portabello Mushrooms = Agaricus brunnescens
Button Mushroom = Agaricus brunnescens

>really hard to grow
yes.

Generally they like composts. They require a biologically active casing layer (non-sterilized peat), and are somewhat hard to initiate pinning, at least in my experience. But if you have bulk substrates down with cubes, it would only take you a bit of trial and error. Generally you'll not find spores, but cultures. Meaning you need to be somewhat familliar with agar to grain transfers.

Ok thanks for the replies. Maybe i'll try shitake mushrooms. Are those the ones you sometimes see in chinese food? Whats the difficulty there? {from someone who has grown the before} . They look pretty tastey!

At the top of the gourmet page you'll see a sticky entitled "New Section: Cultivation of Gourmet and Medicinal Mushrooms" try clicking that.

Button mushrooms are pretty easy to grow so I hear, I've never tried it myself though. One mushroom that tastes great and is very easy to grow (I grew lots of them without even using a terrarium or tent) is oyster mushrooms.

Back in the homeland (Holland) I used to buy these growing kits all the time.. For regular button mushrooms.. They consisted of pasteurised horse manure, spawned with some mycelium ofcourse. you would just put them in a room at normal room temperature.. with indirect sunlight and after about 2 weeks the kit would pin. in 4 days the mushrooms would be mature and you could pick them and eat 'em
