Cost/What's needed
    #4242403 - 06/01/05 01:08 AM (11 years, 6 months ago)

Basically, im very keen on establishing a comercial grow setup. Looking to reduce prices on "exotic" mushrooms locally. Right now we are paying like $5AUD for like 100grams of shiitake or something.
So, my question is, how much would i need to produce to break even?
I also want to total up costs, but im not sure what the average cost is, even though i have looked around. Things are limited, but if i get the math of everything done then my options might grow.
Im looking to grow Shiitake, Oysters (most kinds), Morrels, Lions Maine (sp?), Enoki, Shiimeji (sp?), Shaggy Maine (sp?), Lactarius deliciosus.
Obviously i won't grow all of them at once and all of them to start off with, but i'd be looking to grow a whole host of them.
Any ideas/help/advice?

Do you know how to cultivate Lactarius deliciosus or you just hunt them?

There is a very good book that has a bunch of calculations and examples:

Also, at www.mushworld.com you will find many examples as well.

i hunt them, and will be looking into a technique for cultivation. I've done SOME work, but not much, or anything terribly significant as yet.

Lactarius deliciosus is a mycorrhizal mushroom, thus (yet) impossible to cultivate.
