How do you identify edible mushrooms?

1.Choose mushrooms without white gills. 

Look for mushrooms with gills that are brown or tan. While some mushrooms with white gills are edible, the most deadly and poisonous mushroom family—Amanitas—nearly always has white gills.


2.Select mushrooms without red on the cap or stem. 

Choose mushrooms with white, tan, or brown caps and stems. Many red mushrooms are poisonous.

A red mushroom is using its only natural warning system, its color, to tell predators—including you—to steer clear.



3.Look for mushrooms without scales on the cap. 

Avoid mushrooms with patches or scaling of a lighter or darker shade on the cap, which may appear like spots. These scaly spots are common among poisonous mushroom varieties

For example, white mushrooms may have tan or brown scaly patches.


4.Seek out mushrooms without a ring around the stem. 

Check beneath the cap of the mushroom for a second veil-like ring of tissue that looks a bit like a mini-cap beneath the cap. If the mushroom you’re observing has this ring of tissue, skip it. Many mushrooms with this feature are poisonous.


5.Take two baskets when you forage. 

Place mushrooms you are confident are edible in one basket, and mushrooms you aren’t sure about in another. You won’t get ill simply from handling a poisonous mushroom. Consult a knowledgeable expert to identify any mushrooms you aren’t sure about.

You can connect with a mushroom expert through a local mycological group or at a local university.

There is not one particular location that edible mushrooms grow. They can be found on trees, logs, the forest floor, or on moss.

There is no need to wear gloves when foraging


6.Don’t ingest a mushroom unless you are 100% sure of what it is. 

Use extreme caution when foraging for mushrooms, as many poisonous and nonpoisonous varieties look alike. Some varieties of mushrooms can change their appearance depending upon growing conditions, making identification difficult.

For example, mushrooms of the same variety can develop color differently based on their exposure to sunlight.

Experts suggest never eating any variety of mushrooms that you haven’t been able to identify at least 3 times in the wild. A professional should confirm that you have identified the mushroom properly each of those 3 times.

What is the major problems in mushroom cultivation?

Problems and solutions in the cultivation of the mushroom including: a) Mycelium fails to form Improper initiation strategy.  Solutions : consult parameter of growth. Alter moisture, temperature, light, carbon dioxide, etc.  Note : If the substrate is too moist, decrease moisture b) Chlorinated or contaminated water.  Solutions :  Use activated charcoal water filters to eliminate chemical contaminants or any other ways of simple or appropriate technology. c) Bad substrate.  Solutions : Check substrate. Spread the substrate and remix the substrate, package again, make sure all raw materials are good and fresh.   Note : It is necessary to pasteurize immediately after bagging otherwise fermentation gas will slow down the rate of growth of mycelium or stop mycelium growth. d) Bad pasteurization.  Solutions : Check method of pasteurization. Release all air and make sure there is continuous steam before starting pasteurization for a period of 3h. e) The substrate in the bag is too hot when i

Oyster mushroom vs button mushroom nutrition | Nutritional comparison between oyster and button mushrooms

Oyster mushrooms are beloved the world over for their delicate texture and mild, savory flavor.  Oyster mushrooms are more expensive than white button mushrooms but less so than rarer mushrooms like morels, and take little prep since they can be used whole or chopped.                                Oyster: “These are low in calories and rich in fiber, protein, selenium [which may help prevent cancer], niacin [aka, vitamin B3] and riboflavin [aka, vitamin B2].Oyster mushrooms also contain an active compound called benzaldehyde, which has potent antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
