I have mostly found oysters mushrooms are being grown in plastic bags. I have grown it myself too (more than 15 years ago). I vaguely remember that during my training the instructor also stated that oysters mushrooms could be grown on straw beds. Revisiting the idea of growing mushroom now in 2021, I am a bit hesitant to use plastic bags. I tried googling options but did not find any satisfactory pointers. It is highly possible I am not using the appropriate keywords, thus I am here.
- Can oysters mushrooms be grown in perforated earthen containers mimicking plastic bags?
- What is the process of growing oysters mushrooms on straw bed?
- What are other processes/ways of growing oysters mushrooms in eco friendly way?
PS: The climatic conditions of my place is tropical, Eastern India, in case that can impact the answers.
Any pointers would be helpful.
