To any budding mycologist: Consider these videos required material. Buy them at the same time or even before you purchase your brown rice flour, grain, jars, or pressure cooker. These guys show you almost everything you need to know when it comes to growing mushrooms...almost any kind. They show how to collect spore prints, make syringes, inoculate jars, spawn to bulk substrate, clone, work with grain and agar, and so much more. The videos do not spend much time on fruiting parameters because these are species specific and vary quite a lot.

For info regarding species specific fruiting parameters head on over to The Shroomery(google) and ask roger rabbit and roadkill yourself.

Wow, it's a no-brainer to give 5 stars to this 2 DVD set!

I had previously purchased a copy of Paul Stamets "The Mushroom Cultivator", so this time I ordered "Growing Gourmet and Medicinal Mushrooms" and the "Let's Grow Mushrooms" 2 DVD set by Marc R Keith at the same time. I really like the straightforward approach to teaching how to grow and cultivate mushrooms that is presented in this instructional DVD.

"Let's Grow Mushrooms" skips all the technical/scientific jargon about pleurocystidia, basidium, cheilocystidia, etc., which is all great to know for us mycology geeks, but is really confusing and completely unnecessary for beginning growers who just want to get started learning how to grow mushrooms at home. "Let's Grow Mushrooms" begins and ends with specific hands-on video demonstrations of extremely easy to follow techniques that will have you starting to grow mushrooms the very day you receive your DVD, using materials readily available from your local grocery store or nursery.

Detailed video techniques on using brown rice as both a spawn and substrate open the DVD, and it then progresses from there through the production of grain spawn, growing mushrooms on straw, manure, sawdust/woodchips, and finally finishing up on disk 2 with the more advanced techniques you'll use later on to isolate strains, and also to isolate healthy mycelium from contaminants on agar. All techniques are presented in a clear, visual format, and the music, pictures, and graphics are first-rate quality.

If you've been lost trying to figure out exactly what steps you need to perform to cultivate mushrooms at home, or if you're a visual learner, this 2 DVD set is for you.

The video is great. Anyone interested in or growing mushrooms of all kinds should have it. It made the process of growing P. Ostreatus "oyster mushrooms" from a test tube culture alot easier and funner for me. From start to finish and beyond Marc's way of explaining things is priceless. He makes it easy to understand the more technical steps that are sometimes less well explained elsewhere. Also, he provides many good tips that you don't get from some of the books. If he makes another video or book...I'll buy it!

RR has become somewhat of a legend in diy mushroom cultivation, you can google the name of this video to find his personal website with pictures of his amazing mushroom cave-room he built. Incredible. @__@

On to the video; I saw another reviewer say that the video has a lot of slow transitions and stuff. If you can't have the patience to sit through 2 hours of a video about growing mushrooms, then you do not have the patience to grow mushrooms. It is a very slow process that you have to put care heart into it if you want to see results. Don't be discouraged, nothing is more exciting than watching tiny pins erupt into beautiful mushrooms.

This video for the most part does everything in a very professional way with as little room for error as possible. If some of the stages seem daunting, there are other ways to do some of the methods in cheaper and faster ways if you do searches but they have their downfalls too. His agar method intimidates me, my first attempt will be with a "no-pour" tek I've found elsewhere which works okay enough.

All in all this is an incredible instructional video, and even if you want to branch off and do things differently this is still one of the best places you can start. He explains the whys and hows you are to do things, which is essential if you want to avoid problems and headaches later.
Thank you so much for making this video to share with the world. ♥

This video is a wealth of information on mycology for those new to the field. The DVD effectively shows you how to do all the major steps in the mushroom growing process in an easy to understand, well organized manner. From cakes to bulk substrates, this dvd has it all.

I particularly loved the section on agar strain isolation. If you are already experienced in growing mushrooms but haven't been adventurous enough to step into agar work yet, then this dvd is for you. The author has made all steps of agar work easy to follow for even new mycologists. The video segment on agar is worth the cost of the DVD by itself, and yt there is so much more to this dvd.

A GREAT BUY!

If you are a beginner in mushroom cultivation this video can help you a lot since the online guides are sometimes hard to comprehend fully. With the video you see what are the steps etc....if english isn't your mother language you'll get a better idea by listening and seeing instead of just reading which can be confusing (you have to speak english at least a bit though since the dvd is not subtitled I think).

But if you are an expert or have succefully grown before, I don't think it has so much to offer....but it has been really useful for me and I love it!
