Growing mushrooms and other fungi at home is not complicated, especially considering that we have selected strains and cultivation species that are perfectly adapted to our climate. However, all our mushroom kits, mushroom alpacas, mushroom trunks and mycorrhizal trees include growing instructions so that you can follow them step by step and harvest your first mushrooms in a simple and didactic way.
Planting mycorrhizal trees to collect mushrooms
Mycorrhizal trees are one of the latest trends in mushroom cultivation. The great majority of edible species are mycorrhizal, they are associated with the roots of certain trees and besides helping them to grow better, they nourish themselves and flourish around them. Mushroom species such as the appreciated truffles, boletus, chanterelles, or even wild thistle mushrooms and perrechicos, are some of those that you can sow in wild lands next to their trees or bushes and thus be able to harvest them after a few years. In our section of mycorrhizal trees you will find pines of different varieties mycorrhizal with different strains of chanterelles, holm oaks and oaks mycorrhizal with truffles, even wild thistle plants mycorrhizal with pleorotus eryngii. You can buy one mycorrhizated tree or several specimens for larger crops, take advantage of the prices for larger quantities!
