growing mushrooms in your back yard
Day 1: The very beginning
Watch out for white protuding bumps or primordia
It’s particularly important to keep misting during the early stages
Day 2: Keep misting twice daily!
The mushroom pins
A window sill without direct sunlight is ideal
There may be a few heads or many
Day 3: The blue hue will likely fade. Some mushrooms are favoured over others (note the aborted one on the left)
Day 4: Getting there – keep misting
Day 5: Ready to harvest or you could wait..
Day 6: A dramatic oyster mushroom ready for picking
Twist off holding at the base and marvel at your fresh oyster mushroom. Now let the bag rest for 2-3 weeks
