  • How to Grow Oyster Mushrooms (Low Tech)

    Hi rocketsurgery,First I would like to thank you for such a wonderfully put together instructable on growing Oyster Mushrooms. I am very much interested in growing Oyster Mushrooms for myself and eventually to sell at local farmers markets. I am planning to start off growing in my garage in a space of 10'x10' feet or 100 sq. feet. I am concerned on the amount of spawn I should buy to last me for the summer (3 months).

The website I was planning on buying my spawn was from Fungi Perfecti and their Pearl Oyster is the type of mushrooms I would like to grow. I have read your instructables on making my own spawn and am confident that I can do that. Just starting the grow itself is my current barrier. TL, how much spawn should I get to start a 100 sq. feet growing area? Kind regards, Alex
