Space needed to grow mushrooms

We are frequently asked ‘How much room do I need to grow mushrooms’?

To keep yourself supplied with our oyster, shiitake and king oyster mushrooms, then all you need is a space as big as a shower.

If you’re wanting to sell mushrooms to your local restaurants, SPAR or farmer’s market, start with a single garage type of size.

For big commercial projects, it’s wise to do some number crunching with us – these numbers are based on your budget, long-term vision and viability.

    • Hi
      From R135/log. You will need humidification, temperature control to less than 17 deg C, shelving, logs and space to pack and store once harvested.
      Kind regards

  1. I would like to start growing mushroom for my own use, then later go bigger. How do I start and what does it cost?

    • Hi
      To start small I can suggest either the Rookie ‘roomer kit or attend one of our workshops for practical hands-on experience.

  3. Want to start production of king oyster mushroom for local market. Do you sell growing kit for king oyster mushroom? Is it easier to produce like the ordinary oyster mushrooms with the kit your kits?

    • Dear Antwi
      King oyster prefers a sterilized substrate. To make it easier Mushrush supplies king oyster mushroom logs, ready to fruit. All you need is a space where you can control temperature and humidity.
      Kind regards
