What would it take to grow mushrooms in space? How can mushroom
cultivation help us manageinvasive species
and thereby reduce herbicides? Is it possible to
develop a mushroom-growing kit that
would provide high-quality edible protein and bioremediation after a natural disaster? How can we advance our understanding of
morel cultivation so that growers stand a better chance of success?
For more than twenty years, mycologist Tradd Cotter has been
pondering these questions and researching for answers. He offers
readers an in-depth exploration of best organic mushroom cultivation
practices, and shares insight into his groundbreaking research on
challenges such as cultivating morels, “training” mycelium to
respond to contaminants, and perpetuating spawn on cardboard. Geared toward readers who want to
grow mushrooms without the use of pesticides, Cotter looks at the
potential to grow mushrooms on just about anything, just about
anywhere, and by anyone.
