How to grow edible mushrooms indoors
Mushroom growing kits give you everything you need to grow your own mushrooms at home. Edible mushrooms like the umami rich shiitake, colourful oysters and meaty king oyster mushrooms are all easy to grow indoors with a kit from the Organic Gardening Catalogue whether you’re a beginner or seasoned gardener. Simply set up your kit in a warm space kept between 20°C and 25°C, away from direct sunlight.
How to get the most out of a mushroom growing kit
The most important thing to remember with your mushroom growing kit is to never let the substrate dry out. Mist it regularly with a water spray to keep the surface moist. To get the best results, try and keep your kit away from direct sunlight.
