Article SummaryX

Before planting your mushrooms, make a substrate by cutting cardboard into 1 inch squares, putting the squares in a bucket, and pouring in boiling water. After 8 hours, squeeze out the water and stack the cardboard in a bag. As you stack the squares, sprinkle mushroom spawn between each layer. Next, poke some holes in the side of the bag and leave it in a location with a temperature between 60 and 75 °F until the mycelium has formed a thick mat. To help the mushrooms grow, move the bag to a cooler place and water daily. For tips from our Gardener reviewer on how to make your own mushroom spawn, read on!
