Mushroom Cultivation for Beginners - 21 Step-by-Step Methods to Master Your Mushroom Growing Skills in as Little as 4 Weeks (Previously titled Mush Love)
Have you ever wanted to try growing your own mushrooms at home but you weren’t too sure where to start or you felt that it might be too complicated for you to try?
Don’t worry, I can totally relate. Over the last decade, through my own trials and tribulations, and plenty of mistakes along the way, I have learned the craft of turning mycelium into mushrooms and have developed into an experienced mushroom cultivator.
It probably took me longer than it should have to understand the difference between pasteurization and sterilization, the importance of a still air box, and even the implications of not maintaining a sterile environment.
That said, when I first started growing mushrooms at home over 10 years ago, the process appeared very daunting and complicated for the beginner grower and I found myself purchasing many books and reading extensively online to try and get a better understanding of this great hobby.
However, I noticed that even the most extensive guides out there did not nearly elaborate enough on the methods that are most valuable for the small-scale home-grower, like you and myself.
With this book you won’t have to worry about making any of the same mistakes that I did. This easy to follow step-by-step guide was designed to make the process of growing mushrooms at home as simple and easy to follow along as possible. It will give you all the tools you need to become a confident grower and an expert in the not too distant future.
In this book you will discover:
A comprehensive breakdown of mycelium, mushrooms and how they grow
A complete understanding of the cultivation process
A step-by-step guide on how to grow Oysters, Shiitakes, Maitake, Buttons, Lion’s Mane and Enoki mushrooms
The secret ingredient I use to enhance my yield of mushrooms
Easy to follow, low-tech methods you can reproduce at home to make your own spawn
The most common signs of contamination and how to avoid them
8 common problems mushroom cultivators experience and how to fix them
...and much more!
Mush Love makes mushroom cultivation so easy that even someone who thinks mushrooms are a part of the plant kingdom can still become an expert. All you have to do is follow the step by step guides detailed in this book–apply them, learn from them, repeat, and you’ll soon be there!
I can speak from experience when I say that growing mushrooms at home has truly been one of the best and most rewarding hobbies I could ever have imagined doing. This book will make it easy for you to jump in, head first.
