How to Grow Oyster Mushrooms Indoors

Do you like mushrooms? Mushrooms are great additions in many cooking recipes. In soup, salad or eaten raw as is with some delicious dips, mushrooms are great keeper in our kitchen. Unfortunately mushrooms get more and more expensive today. Not to mention that in those store-bought mushrooms there could be some pesticides or other harmful substances. Growing mushrooms indoor is the cheaper, healthier solution to your access to mushrooms. It's not hard at all. All you need is just used milk cartons (or plastic bottles, or buckets, or barrels), a pencil (or a drill if you use buckets/barrels), sawdust, coffee grounds (spent is fine!), oyster mushroom spawn and non-chlorinated water for dampening.

Got all those? Now let's learn how to make your own mushroom garden.

Isn't it easy?

Here are some images from mushroom growers using different types of container.
