A short digression into mushroom culture

Mushroom season is on and it’s a blast walking through the woods looking at mushrooms. But if you are like me and you do not know enough about mushrooms, you might end up picking the wrong mushrooms. So I decided to culture some mushrooms at home. For science!

At Bolets de Soca I bought a culture kit of Pleurotus ostreatus. After two days I had the package at home.


After 2 days something started to grow and grow. That does not look like mushrooms at all!


A few days more of waiting and watering the mushrooms started to show.


Patience and watering… Look at them all grown up!


The first mushroom harvest of the year!
