Mushrooms

Asked April 29, 2014, 10:14 AM EDT

Hi,

I have a rather large fir tree in my back yard and would like to grow some mushrooms under it. Is there a book or website you would recommend that would help me figure out how to do this?
Do different mushrooms do better under fir trees?
Dose the type of log you put your spore on matter?

Thanks,
Brienna

Thank you for your question to Ask the Expert.

The is very little information on growing mushrooms at home published by OSU or from other Extension Services. This article references an online store where you can learn more and order mushroom spawn kits: http://ag.arizona.edu/yavapai/anr/hort/byg/archive/growingmushrooms.html. Kits are also available from Peaceful Valley Farm Supply.

Unfortunately, I do not have any further guidance on this topic.

Good luck!
