Mushrooms require a strong dirt base to be grown on. Mushrooms grow very well when agricultural scrap is used as the compost. The base should be wet before the spawn is planted. Spawn is commercially available. If you want to keep everything real then you could try making your own spawn but it is not advised for first time mushroom growers.

The spawn should be sprinkled evenly all over the agricultural dump. Now pack the spawn and the base tightly. You could plastic wrapping to pack the spawn with the base. Make some holes in the plastic wrapping for ventilation purposes. Now heat it at around 70 to 80 degree Fahrenheit. Leave it like this for 15 days. The mycelium would have begun to grow. Now reduce the temperature by 20 to 25 degree Fahrenheit. The bases have to be watered now. Drench them in sunlight and turn up the heat by about 20 percent. After a few weeks you will be able to see the first sprouts.

Mushrooms grow from spores, not seeds. A blend of the spores and these nutrients are called spawn. The spawn supports the growth of mushrooms tiny, white, a thread like roots, called mycelium. The spawn itself could grow mushrooms, but you'll get a lot better mushroom harvest when the spawn is applied to a substrate or growing medium. Mushrooms prefer dark, cool, moist, and humid growing environments. In a house, a basement is often ideal. Test the proposed location by checking the temperature. Most mushrooms grow best in temperatures between 55 and 60 degrees F, away from drying, direct heat and drafts. I have some idea about, which produce the quality based fresh and dried mushroom in the market at the best offer prices. Thanks.
