What Do I Need to Grow Mushrooms at Home?


Growing mushrooms at home is a rewarding and fun activity that provides you with a fresh supply of tasty and nutritious mushrooms. Here are some things you’ll need to get started to grow mushrooms at home.

Mushroom Spawn:

Spawn is the starting material used to grow mushrooms. You can purchase spawn online or at local gardening stores.


Substrate is the material used to grow the mushrooms. Depending on the type of mushroom you are growing, this can be a variety of things such as straw, sawdust, or compost.


You will need containers to hold your substrate and spawn. These can be anything from plastic grow bags to glass jars to plastic tubs.


Growing Environment: 

Mushrooms require a specific growing environment with controlled temperature, humidity, and light. Depending on the mushroom you are growing, this can be a grow tent, greenhouse, or even a closet. Our FloCubes are designed to be a perfect space to work on your mushrooms in a contamination-free work area.


Mushrooms require moisture to grow, so you’ll need a source of water to mist or spray your growing containers.


You’ll need some basic tools to get started, such as a spray bottle, gloves, and a small knife to cut your substrate and spawn.


Growing mushrooms can take time and requires patience. Depending on the type of mushroom you are growing, it can take anywhere from a few weeks to several months to harvest your first crop.

Different types of mushrooms require different growing conditions. It’s essential to research the specific requirements for the type of mushroom you want to grow. With some patience and the right materials, you can grow delicious and nutritious mushrooms right in your own home.
