There’s no denying that many of us want to start our own gardens for different reasons. Some simply want to add a refreshing touch at home, a few would like to care for succulents and herbs, and there are those who want to grow their own vegetables and fruits.

If you belong to the latter group, you may want to start growing mushrooms, too. These are typically grown indoors—you just need a little space, time to work on it, and the right materials. You can set this up in the basement or you can also purchase ready-made growing kits. These kits can be placed inside unused cabinets or in any spot at home where you can control the amount of light, and monitor the temperature and humidity.

It sounds easy to accomplish as mushrooms grow from spores. To get started, choose the right culture spore for you. If you’re a first-timer, you can work with oyster and button mushrooms as these are the easiest to grow. In only one month, you’ll be ready to harvest the fruits of your labor.
