I have a bundled rice straw and and abaca waste to culture mushroom in the kitchen. It is put in a tray. Amazingly, after a few days of sprinkling water in it, there are two sets of mushroom flushes sprouting in it. I just bought this bundle of rice straw and abaca waste in two plastic bundles. It seems that tomorrow or the next day, I can already harvest the flushing mushrooms. Mushroom culture requires less space. I just put it in the kitchen and sprinkled a little amount of water in it. Now, that there are already flushes sprouting, I will stop sprinkling water in it until such time that I get to harvest the mushroom including the stump. The whole stump is recommended to be removed when harvesting in order not to affect the other mushrooms when a leftover stump becomes rotten. I got a picture of it and I will see if I can upload it using my new touchscreen cellfone.

Wow may iphone ka, ang galing naman. Raising your very own mushroom is very rewarding indeed. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.

Very interesting post. We were actually thinking about growing our own mushrooms, but, we think it's difficult. Any tips? Para fresh mushrooms sana for cooking.
