How to grow mushrooms (comment cultiver des champignons)
The best thing to do for inexperienced hands is to use a growkit. This kit comes prepped and ready, so you need to follow the steps and recommendations. The substrate is already previously colonized, not to require fillings or maintenance. You need to remove the kit from the box and follow some very simple steps, such as removing the lid and placing it inside the supplied bag, making sure that the micro-perforations face up.
After a week, you will begin to see the first bulbs, but you should not water at any time. The accumulated moisture in the bag will do its job. Leave the kit in a place with sufficient natural light and make sure the temperature is around 18-28 degrees Celsius. In about ten days, you will harvest your first mushrooms.
