Among the most coveted mushroom species, there are three that have very different characteristics. Generally, bald mushrooms are the most popular, but they grow generously. These are light mushrooms that go well with a simple salad.
More sought after, oyster mushrooms are perfect for searing in a pan, inserted in a fricassee, or to garnish an omelet. Finally, more consistent, the shiitakes reveal incomparable flavors and alone represent an excellent nutritional contribution.
To grow well, mushrooms need a cool, humid place like a cellar, basement or garage. This place must also be well sheltered from the wind, and its temperature must oscillate between 12 and 20 ° C. If greenhouse cultivation is possible, it should be possible to dim the light and humidify the air.
What you need:
A bucket or container (A 5-gallon plastic bucket is recommended)
A good amount of ground coffee
Spray bottle to water your mushrooms
Once you’ve got all the ingredients together, start by half filling your bucket with coffee beans. If your coffee beans are completely dry, add water and let them drain. Then break the mushroom spores and add them to your bucket. Mix all the spores with the coffee grounds and compress them gently.
If you have enough patterns and spores, fill your bucket, leaving about 2 cm free at the top. If you don’t have enough soil and spores, drill a few holes near the top of your bucket, which will allow carbon dioxide to escape from the bucket.
If you have plastic wrap, cover your bucket with it and make a few holes at the top. As soon as you notice that your mushrooms are starting to grow, remove the plastic. Once you have reached this stage, mist your garden twice a day for 2 weeks, you should notice that your mushrooms are starting to germinate.
