MUSHROOMS GROW ON WHAT?

24 EXPERIMENTS

Can edible mushrooms grow on leaves, twigs, timber slices? How about coffee waste, old tea bags, phone books, newspaper or toilet rolls? 

Yes to all! The info sheet covers the requirements of the oyster mushroom before successful invasion can begin. This usually involves moistening and reducing the likelihood of contaminants. 

Spawn, growing bags, filters and instructions are provided for preparing each experiment. Other plant based products can be trialled- send in your findings..
