Growing mushrooms is done for many reasons. Some people enjoy the satisfaction of producing them instead of buying them. If you are wise, you can raise them more cheaply than you can buy them, and you can keep them going indefinitely.
You can also control the way in which they are raised. You can ensure that they are not treated with chemicals, washed in chlorine, or exposed to other nasty contaminants that might cause problems for you if you have sensitivities.
And of course, you can select just the right mushrooms, for just the dish you have in mind.
But mostly, because growing things gives you a sense of accomplishment that nothing else does. It is especially nice when you know that you won't have to pay for mushrooms again unless you want to. They are a good source of protein and many needed nutrients, so they'll help you be more self-sufficient even if you are enduring difficult economic times.
Mushrooms can be very expensive, and even one mushroom kit can pay for itself on the first fruiting. If you are having trouble finding a reliable supply of a rarer type of mushroom, growing it yourself means you'll never be held hostage to the local store for price or poor quality ever again.
You can also prepare fabulous gifts for your friends and family. Homemade mushroom kits, dried mushrooms, frozen stuffed mushrooms, specialized seasonings packed in a decorative bottle, or special homemade mushroom mixes packed in a nice jar or bag.
Naturalized mushrooms grow in containers, yards, lawns, gardens, landscaping, fields, and woods, and there are more than 100 species of edible mushrooms that you can naturalize. They'll come back year after year, provided conditions are right - and conditions DO have to be right. Each mushroom has specific conditions it likes to grow and produce within, so make sure that you choose mushrooms to naturalize that WANT to grow in the conditions you have available.
Be warned though. Some people seem to have a predisposition to becoming addicted to the culture of mushrooms. We think it is a healthy addiction!
