Growing mushrooms in tropical climates

Growing mushrooms in tropical climates

My mushroom growing products are shipped with detailed growing instructions, and instructions are also available on this website. Nonetheless, many customers have written to me to ask for help with special growing situations and wood types. I regularly receive enquiries from hobby and commercial mushroom growers in European countries. Recently, I have started to receive enquiries from tropical countries too.

In March 2003 I visited a mushroom growing institute at the University of Bangkok. This institute teaches mushroom growing to farmers in rural areas of Thailand. I learnt about new edible mushroom types and discussed growing methods which are appropriate to developing countries using techniques which do not require extensive resources. I also saw how to multiply mushroom spawn in a simple laboratory which can be constructed by farmers.
