growing mushrooms : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread

I am a novice gardener with a passion for mushrooms. I realize that mushrooms are not like most garden vegetables because they are not grown from seeds. However, I would love to hear from anyone who knows how to cultivate them (if it is possible to do that at all on a small scale). Please keep in mind that since I live in a 1-bedroom apartment, it is not possible for me to grow anything indoors.

Depending on the type of mushroom you are looking to grow Henry Field www, or Gurneys carry a couple of nice mushroom kits.

Try the North American Mycological Association at that includes great links and cultivation info. A great way to start with mushrooms and learn a little bit without great expense is to purchase a kit for $25. They have links for other great mushroom sites that sell retail/wholesale. Good luck.
