Yes, in my garage. Growing inoculated bags one at a time of various types; couldn't be simpler. I've heard of people getting 4lbs of mushrooms from 1.5lb kits if they do multiple flushes, feed, and remix, so as a hobbyist milking it for every last drop, I'm optimistic.

I got one of those oyster mushroom kits from amazon & grew two flushes. It was fast & extremely easy. I dried & powdered the mushrooms to use in cooking.

Yes. We've been growing shiitake on oak logs for years, what we don't eat fresh we dehydrate. Field and Forrest has alot of variety.

Have not yet but I plan to put sections all over our greenhouse raised beds with different mushroom media and mycelium so I can grow a few different types. I’m waiting until we finish our beds a little more before I start buying what I’ll need to do so, however.

My daughter does...in her closet! She repurposed her boot dryer to heat her small grow tent and has a humidifier going in there as well. That's all I know but she says they turn out great!

Got Phoenix oyster and Lion’s Mane in the greenhouse now… and the remnants of cream of mushroom soup in the fridge.

I talked to some growers at a nursery open house near me. They claim that specialty mushrooms are a cash crop. I also saw some specialty mushroom growers at a farmers market in Utah and some were selling for $20+ per lb!
