GROWING MUSHROOMS

A couple weeks ago I bought five mushroom baglogs from my neighbor, but she gave me six! Thank you so much friend!
She offered me some mushroom baglogs to be grown before, and I was really interested about it.
 I have ever grown Oyster mushroom about five years ago.
Here, Oyster mushroom is called jamur Tiram.
I think it's a good idea to grow them in our house.
So... I put them near my sink, in order to keep them  moist.
But actually I haven't special place for them.
This is the most favorite mushroom on my family.
We use to make so many dishes from it. 
Soup, stir fried, fried mushroom, curry, omelet, and many more dishes...
Hmmm... so delicious!
They grow rapidly, so fast!
It's more than my expectation. 
So exciting!

  1. Dear Endah,
    amazing how fast they grow! They do even look beautiful. We like them to, with noddles, on salads or just fried with salt, pepper and a bit of olive-oil...

  2. I tried this once but it didn't work. Those mushroom logs look like works of art.

    1. Maybe the microclimate was too dry. They love high humidity and cool temperature. My first experience, the log only produced once then dry and died. I hope I can pick the mushrooms continously from this growing.

  3. Very interesting, I have never seen these logs. I really like mushrooms but my wife and daughter won't eat them. I guess that I could grow and eat them myself as they are so good and these have a an art like appearance like Sue says.

    1. I guess so. Here, this mushroom is usually grown in highland with cool temperature. I hope you can find the logs like this, and grown your own mushroom.

  4. As much as I love mushrooms, growing them like that seems a bit creepy to me. I once lived in an old farmhouse that I believe was too damp and molding, so if I grew the mushrooms I would do it outside my house. Don't get me wrong, I love to see those beautiful mushrooms! But for me they would have to be outside. Linda@Wetcreek Blog

    1. Here, the farmer usually grow this mushroom in the tunnel house. But I only grow six logs, so I put them on the damp place in my house :'sink' side. I'm sure mine could not grow as well as the farmer's, cause the microclimate is not good enough. ButI hope they could grow well.
      Thank you for coming Linda.
