Growing oyster mushrooms in Singapore

Around a week ago, I caught up with Balan, a keen gardener and one who hates seeing things go to waste. He handed me some oyster mushroom kits to try, plus extra to share with friends,  and also gave me a Cuban Oregano seedling. I was so excited, I’ve always wanted to grow mushrooms, but it all seemed a bit complicated.

Grown on a substrate of spent coffee grounds, the mushroom spawn come prepared in paper cups, and all you’ll need to do is add water. It’s all grown naturally, so it’s safe for consumption. When it is launched in the near future, the kits will come in reused paper cups, and he hopes to make it as eco as possible. I’ll announce that when it happens, because I think many people will be keen to try it out! This is what it looks like when I received them.

After 2 days or so…
