How to guides

It might take a little time, but our aim is to provide ‘how to’ guides that cover all or at least most of the aspects of cultivating mushrooms at home. As we add new guides, they’ll be added below.

To start with, we decided it was best to cover the all-important topic of sterilising and disinfecting – a critical lesson for anyone interested in growing mushrooms at home. It might be a simple enough topic but hey, that didn’t stop your mother telling you to wash behind your ears for 16 years! We’ve followed that up with other articles on how to make your own agar petri dishes, how to make liquid culture for mycelium development and other topics such as sterilising your own grain to make grain spawn and how to make your own substrates.
