Mushroom kits have actually had a fair amount of bad press recently with many critics claiming that they provide very poor affordability when comparing the yields of the mushroom kits with the specific price of the mushrooms in the shops. I find this an extremely unfair comparison and believe that it is wrong to simply compare the two with the quantity of mushrooms that they produce.
You can purchase mushroom growing kits for just a few different species of mushroom – you can obtain button mushroom grow kits and you may 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 can also grow other varieties from more specialist websites, letting you grow your personal mushrooms like Shiitake, Portobello and more. These kits usually cost around ï¿½5 to ï¿½10 and can probably offer you around ï¿½5 worth of mushrooms (if grown in the perfect environment, and with respect to the variety as some mushrooms cost more then others in the shops).
I don’t understand why people moan when it costs more to buy a mushroom growing kit then it can 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 to allow them to grow them. Then theres the truth that in a kit you obtain a box and obtain 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 the garden (mushroom compost is probably the most expensive and nutritious forms of compost as the mushrooms breakdown and recycle many nutrients present in the substrate). And there’s the fact that you are growing mushrooms yourself – surely the excitement and fun factor are worth paying for too.
For Psilocybin chocolate growing kits are an effective way of growing your own mushrooms and even if sometimes they don’t really offer amazing affordability in comparison with the shop price you will learn so much from carrying it out yourself and can probably take great pride in growing and eating your personal mushrooms. Maybe even once you have learned a bit more about cultivating mushrooms you could cut out the middleman and discover your personal substrate (straw, newspaper, manure) and buy or make your personal mushroom spawn. That’s where you can get real value for money too, growing hundreds of pounds worth of mushroom from literally a few pounds investm
