    Hi all,

    I was just wondering whether anyone has any experience of growing mushrooms from a kit? And no, I'm not hoping to supplement my income by growing mushrooms of the magic variety! :p

    How easy are they to grow? Do you get many mushrooms from them? I eat loads of mushrooms so I'm trying to work out whether it would be cheaper for me to grow my own or just to keep on buying them, lol! :)

    Thanks in advance.

    You have to be careful, I had a kit but the mushrooms didn't grow, but flies did! Little fruit fly type things! They then invaded all my houseplants and killed my carefully nurtured 8 yr old money tree! :-(
