year round cultivation of mushrooms in the tropical dryland forest

Welcome, Peter.

Most of my questions concern cultivating mushrooms in the tropical dryland forest and keeping growth going throughout the year. Heavy rainy season, extra heavy dry season. Any suggestion on varieties to try? Fungus abounds in this part of the world, especially in wet season, and I'm curious as to what sorts of mushrooms could handle this climate and be productive most months of the year. Thanks.

I would try to cultivate the local species. There is likely a native Oyster (Pleurotus spp.). These species often do well on various forms of ag waste. If it is local, it is tolerant of the challenging climate.

I hope that helps
Peter
