I am fayyaz arif and i grow mushroom as a hobby since last 11 years. If any one is interested in growing button mushrooms,oyster mushrooms, king oyster mushrooms, milky mushroom i can guide him on complete process in setting up of a mushroom house and growing techniques of above mentioned mushrooms.
Unfotunately i have found people involved in mushroom cultivation very conservative in sharing knowledge. I think one must share the knowledge which he has attained before he dies as it will become sadqa e jaria for him.
lets share knowledge on mushroom cultivation as pakistan has a big potential in mushroom prodution due to diverse climate and easy and cheap availabilty of composting materials like wheat straw, cotton waste, paddy straw, chicken manure, corn cobs and sugarcane baggasse. I would say that we are unfortunate that despite above mentioned advantages we have still not exploited them and our nation is suffering from protein deficiency. lets join hands and work togather in nation building by promoting mushroom cultivat
Dear Fayyaz Arif sb

Harvest was good but I was unable to maintain humidity in long run... it must be kept in humid area, my substrate dried out...

Yasir bhai u may contact me on my mobile 03214013737. let me tell u its
A full time job and environment controll mushroom houses are expensive to establish. I can guide u i detail but i would suggest that u better learn the complete process completely by cultivating mushrooms in a small room available in ur house. Oyster mushrooms sell in the market but not in huge quantities. I would suggest if u want to go for commercial mushroom farming then go button mushrooms (agaricus bisporus). Button mushrooms are high in demand in market but their cultivation is quite technical and labour intensive. My brotherly advise to u is that first of all u better get urself trained at a smaller scale before going commercial
