Do: Provide the Right Environment
Once you’ve chosen the right variety, you’ll need to provide the right environment for your mushrooms to thrive. This includes the right temperature, humidity, and light. The temperature should be between 55 and 65 degrees Fahrenheit, the humidity should be between 85 and 95 percent, and the light should be indirect.

It’s important to monitor the growing process. This includes checking the temperature, humidity, and light levels regularly. It’s also important to check for signs of disease or pests. If you notice any of these issues, it’s important to take action quickly to prevent further damage.
Don’t: Use Chemical Fertilizers
When growing mushrooms, it’s important to avoid using chemical fertilizers. Chemical fertilizers can be toxic to mushrooms and can also damage the environment. Instead, opt for organic fertilizers or compost.
Another important don’t when it comes to growing mushrooms is to avoid overwatering. Mushrooms need moisture to grow, but too much water can cause them to rot. It’s important to check the soil regularly and water only when the top inch of soil is dry.
Don’t: Plant Too Deep
Finally, it’s important to avoid planting mushrooms too deep. Mushrooms need to be planted at the same depth as they were grown in the nursery. Planting them too deep can cause them to rot or fail to produce mushrooms.
