Hello All,

I am involved in a project in Nicaragua (Matagalpa) and we are wanting to grow mushrooms (indoors and outdoors) on our site.  I am looking for good resources to help guide our design process including anyone who has had experience growing mushroom successfully in the tropics or in a climate analogous zone,  books or guides,  websites, courses & seminars etc... very excited to learn what is possible and design this system.  

Thankyou in advance for any insight you may have to start this process!

Sara

I just ordered this book! It was a bit hard to find, but I finally got it from biblio.com. Still waiting on its arrival, so I can't comment on its contents.

"Technical guidelines for mushroom growing in the tropics- Quimio, Chang, Royse"


I live in deep south Texas and have had trouble growing mushrooms outdoors except for in Fall and Winter. Just built a semi-climate controlled environment (insulated tin building with window unit A/C and a fog humidifier) and got some mushrooms fruiting now.

Alas, I still haven't gotten the book! I ordered it from two different vendors and had to have my money refunded both times, because they did not have/deliver the book.

How can a book be so hard to track down!?

I found it from two other vendors, but for double the price. If/when I decide that I can afford it, I'll let you know how it is. Please let me know if you find it frown another source in the meantime.

Best of luck with your tropical fungi endeavours!
