i am starting a thread to track progress on mushroom growing, partly to hold myself accountable. i am gonna collect supplies this week so i can start by this time next week and i will be using this method https://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/publication/ss662 because it has the lowest startup cost i've found #mycology
after a delay because of difficulty finding straw, of all things, i decided to try a few different alternate subtrates. so, i mixed up bags with both mixed softwood and pure aspen woodshavings yesterday and have them set in a tub near the water heater for consistent heat. humidity is harder to maintain, considering I'm in Colorado and our usual indoor humidity is like 18%... so I'm using both a fogger and a clean towel soaked in water that I'm changing out every other day.
