penis Envy Mushroom Spores have actually had a good amount of bad press in recent times with many critics claiming that they provide very poor value for money when you compare the yields of the mushroom kits with the actual price of the mushrooms in the shops. I find this an extremely unfair comparison and feel that it is wrong to simply compare the two with the amount of mushrooms that they produce.
You can purchase mushroom growing kits for just a few different species of mushroom – you will get button mushroom grow kits and you can get oyster mushroom grow kits. These two are the most common and can be purchased at most garden centres and usually on garden centre websites. However you may also grow other varieties from more specialist websites, allowing you to grow your own mushrooms like Shiitake, Portobello and much more. These kits usually cost around ï¿½5 to ï¿½10 and can probably provide you with around ï¿½5 worth of mushrooms (if grown in the best possible environment, and depending on the variety as some mushrooms cost more then others in the shops).
I don’t understand why people moan when it costs more to get a mushroom growing kit then it does to buy the mushrooms themselves. A lot of the supermarket mushrooms are grown massively in bulk and are usually grown far away and imported across, where it really is so much cheaper for them to grow them. Then theres the truth that in a kit you get a box and get the substrate (compost or straw) as well as a small bag of spawn. When you buy mushrooms from the shop you aren’t left over with excellent compost for your garden (mushroom compost is among the most expensive and nutritious types of compost as the mushrooms breakdown and recycle many nutrients within the substrate). And then there’s the fact that you’re growing mushrooms yourself – surely the excitement and fun factor are worth paying for too.
For me mushroom growing kits are an effective way of growing your own mushrooms and even if sometimes they don’t offer amazing affordability when compared to the shop price you will learn so much from carrying it out yourself and will probably take great pride in growing and then eating your own mushrooms. Maybe even once you’ve learned a little more about cultivating mushrooms you can cut out the middleman and discover your own substrate (straw, newspaper, manure) and purchase or make your personal mushroom spawn. This is where you can get real affordability too, growing hundreds of pounds worth of mushroom from literally a couple of pounds investm
