Mushrooms contain important vitamins, minerals and proteins. Many species are believed to cure ailments. The mushrooms can be planted twice a year between March and October. It is recommended that a new grower in mushroom cultivation starts with easy-to-grow and easy-to-sell mushrooms such as the oyster mushrooms. The optimal temperature is 24 degrees Celsius for mushroom growth. Mushrooms do not like sudden temperature changes and a higher or lower environmental temperature can postpone the moment of fruiting.
