Organic Mushroom Farming and Mycoremediation: Simple to Advanced and Experimental Techniques for Indoor and Outdoor Cultivation

What would it take to grow mushrooms in space? How can mushroom cultivation help us manage, or at least make use of, invasive species such as kudzu and water hyacinth and thereby reduce dependence on herbicides? Is it possible to develop a low-cost and easy-to-implement mushroom-growing kit that would provide high-quality edible protein and bioremediation in the wake of a natural disaster? How can we advance our understanding of morel cultivation so that growers stand a better chance of success?

    If you want to grow your own mushrooms, then you need this book. Material is very well organized and thorough. Photography is beautiful. Save yourself some time on the learning curve with the tried and true methods presented by Mr. Cotter.

    space mushrooms anyone?, August 22, 2014

    This review is from: Organic Mushroom Farming and Mycoremediation: Simple to Advanced and Experimental Techniques for Indoor and Outdoor Cultivation (Paperback)
    There is nothing this book does not cover. It is informative, well written, and comprehensive. If you need a science fair project, read this book. If you are a grower and need information about certain strains of fungi, read this book.

    Tradd’s enthusiasm for fungi shines through on every page. Just in the first few pages you feel ready to respond to Tradd’s invitation to expand on the information in the book and start growing mushrooms yourself. Tradd does a good job explaining the various uses for fungi with helpful photos. One of my favorite ideas explained was inoculating wooden cutting boards to provide natural antimicrobial properties; a living cutting board with an immune system.

    This is a great read for anyone interested in the unceasingly interesting world of mushrooms.

    If you have ANY questions on how to grow mushrooms, this is THE book to get! While many books I’ve been reading have lightly touched on the subject, this masterpiece goes into so much detail and has such great photos and instructions, after reading it cover to cover, I immediately started earmarking trees for mushrooms growing and planning which varieties I’m going to order! Coming from a laboratory background (molecular biology/protein biochemistry), I am very impressed with his level of scientific detail and his skill at showing how even an amateur without lab experience can setup his/her own lab and do so sterile and cheaply! The best part about this book was his details on keeping your cultures going by using rolled up cardboard and plastic bags, it’s brilliant! As much as I enjoyed Stamets’ books, I found this one to be easier to read and more user-friendly.
