6. Do they grow all year ’round?
If you are growing inside… Yes, these mushrooms grow any time of year. They have a preference for the change in seasons, so if outside would prefer more spring-like or autumn conditions. Inside most of our homes, the season is kind of spring-like all year, so the mushrooms respond.
However, there are a few thinks to know.
- The Greys and Shiitake tolerate temp’s being a little chilly.
- The Pinks’ are more shorts and t-shirt temps, so a little fussier during the depths of winter.
- All will respond well to a sharp change in temp. This can sometimes be used to initiate pinning. A tip is a tip covered in our grow guide and FAQ.
