We got my girlfriends dad a oyster mushroom box from a garden centre an it was really good he was able to get several growths out of it and you can keep it in your house I have an apartment and I have been thinking to grow them. Easy way to get results
No I haven't tried to grow my own.
I love this little bit of fungus...I must admit.
Have also heard some very sad stories of people dying, from picking the wrong ones!
I may give it a try one day, to grow some....right now I have a Rabbit problem.
That takes up my energy....Will have to stick to just buying them.
We had a similar problem. My plant pathologist husband says that quite often the kits are out of date or have not been stored correctly. The one in the photo came from a farmers' market, and 3 crops came off it.
I have not, but oddly enough a few weeks ago while I was in Bunnings I saw the home packs, and thought about iy.
I came home and looked it up on the net, however then decided I have too much else going on.
I do like the idea of home grown ones as I will only buy Australian mushrooms, which is very limiting as apart from the buttons and field ones, all the others we get in WA are imported.
