Paul Wheaton and Alex Ojeda continue reviewing Sepp Holzer's Permaculture, chapter 4, on cultivating mushrooms. This part talks about growing mushrooms on strawbales. It's essential that the straw is organic, and is clean (not rotted). They talk about other uses for straw, and straw vs. hay. Paul talks about not bringing any organic matter in to your land. Sepp writes that it can be too wet for mushrooms. They talk about the symbiotic relationship between mushrooms and trees, and how location matters. Sepp writes about not leaving ripe mushroom parts behind, as they will rot, and the mold will spread and harm the mycelial net. They talk about button mushrooms, and morels.
