Don't need a shed! Depending on the species, you can grow on your countertop within a bag, or at the most (what I do) is use one of these: 4 Tier Greenhouse $34, rig up a 'Cool Mist' Humidifier at the bottom, voila.

You could also build a 'Shotgun Fruiting Chamber', as seen here, in this Reishi grow.

A SGFC is essentially any storage tub with 1/4-1/8 inch holes drilled every 2 inches on all sides (top bottom left right front and back) and 4 inches of gardening perlite, soaked in water and laid in the container.

This allows for Fresh Air Exchange (FAE) while still retaining high levels of humidity...although, you have to fan/mist the SGFC types...which is why I prefer my first method.

PM with any questions, Mycology is fun!

Yeah the greenhouse was about $30 on Amazon (here), I got an ultrasonic humidifier as was recommended for $40.

The controller was really reasonable, about $25. It doesn't have a fan, it just turns the humidifier on/off to maintain a target humidity inside the tent.

Yep it's really not too expensive at all, especially considering none of this will really need regular replacing except the bags which are 80 cents each. Those mushrooms are definitely hard to find and not cheap! Lion's mane in particular is very rare in the wild and pretty pricey in a store. It's also extremely delicious, tastes something like lobster. Sweet and meaty.

EDIT: Corrected humidifier price

Hey all - I just started with succulents about a month ago, and I'm already neck deep in plants (and responsibilities).

I repotted most of my collection into terra cotta about 3 weeks ago, and noticed an immediate improvement in health.

I have a few specific questions

  1. With the Lithops, the blooming one seems to have stagnated. It first erupted on Friday morning, however, I thought it would have bloomed by now. Is it supposed to go brown? I lightly watered it once the bloom showed itself, and have been lightly misting it every other day. Is the pot that they are in too shallow for them? It's about 1.5" deep, with 50/50 perlite and cactus mix.

  2. For the sempervivum, is it good to remove the pups? I pulled off about 30 yesterday, saving the larger rosettes for propagation. Do they draw on the plant's energy? I noticed signs of etiolation, which is what spurred the concern and subsequent removal of buds / dry leaves.
  3. How often should I mist my cuttings that have rooted? I don't want to give them sunburn so I have only been misting lightly every couple of nights.
  4. Is it necessary to get grow lights? Winter is harsh here, I don't particularly trust the heating, and I have too many plants to cram into one window. I'm likely going to buy some, but I'm unsure of what kind.
    4.I would like to get a small nursery like [this] ( as I plan on growing Mesemb seeds this winter. Would lights be beneficial to a setup like this? What are your thoughts on greenhouses like this? I feel like I could combine the nursery with the greenhouse to house most of my succulents during the winter. Has anyone done this?
  5. I'd like ID's on the topsy turvy looking one (light, light blue), the sempervivum, and the severely etiolated echeveria (i think? possibly sedum?) . If anyone is an expert with Lithops I'd love to know the species.

    Thanks all!

I have two large-tomato plants I bought around a month ago that are doing fine but have several Roma I have started from seed that I'm waiting to put out until they're bigger. I was lucky enough to get a green house for my birthday and I started them and other veggies in that before planting any seedlings outside. So far so good. This isn't exactly the one I have but structurally it's the same.

u/saychezze · 2 pointsr/Mushroom_Cultivation

I would like to add, spawn bags,small greenhouse,humidifier.

u/servedconserved · 2 pointsr/shrooms

Overkill, and has no shelves. I see people using these for mushrooms, nice shelves on the rack. Might fit easier into a closet to hide.

u/KellyCDB · 2 pointsr/Bonsai

I don't know if this is the kind of thing you're looking for, but I just got this for my trees on my balcony. I'm using it without the cover for now, thinking I'll just put it on for a little protection in winter, I don't think it'll keep them so warm as to prevent dormancy. I zip-tied the wire shelves to the supports for extra stability, and it seems like it's going to work well. Here's what it looks like.

Thanks! This is it!

u/MorningSideMayor · 1 pointr/microgrowery

Just use a taller greenhouse. Maybe something like this, it has the potential for a tall plant as well as training it to be a little smaller.

u/Pectre · 1 pointr/MushroomGrowers

So I have a this in little indoor greenhouse that I use as a fruiting chamber. And then I have a humidifier that sits inside connected to a humidity controller set at 90% relative humidity. To increase FAE I got small fan from and placed it just inside on the bottom rack pointing upwards and then cracked the zipper of the greenhouse about a foot so that it could suck in fresh air. Just had this on all the time. I think the weather has also helped. Its been pretty cold as of late (I live the bay area and don't turn on heat), so fruiting was triggered naturally.

u/djwonderful · 1 pointr/MushroomGrowers

I'm going to assume you want to grow Oyster mushrooms.

It's going to be more than just the fruiting chamber. I've grown oysters in 5 gallon buckets outside in the shade.

You need a place to prep everything too. Do you have access to a kitchen? Are your house mates going to be ok when you start cooking up grains and straw that has an smell to it?

This is 27x18 and about the cheapest and smallest you can get for a fruiting chamber. Anything smaller and you are better off making something out of storage totes.

best of luck!

u/Awkward-Octopus · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

This one! The germinated seeds were butternut squash, black star zucchini, and sugar baby watermelon. The non-germinated ones (that I am about to start over with germinating first) were sweet peppers, roma tomatoes, spaghetti squash, and carrots. Or I'm gonna buy starter plants. Might be my best bet.

u/mushroom4improvement · 1 pointr/MushroomGrowers

how big are you trying to go? a small investment can increase your volume quite a bit. a popular Martha can be made from a greenhouse rack a humidifier and a timer.

u/sulsul_wyd · 1 pointr/gardening

Hopefully the link works (I’m on mobile and don’t know wtf) but it’s from amazon! If you look up greenhouses they have a few different ones... I got the cheap one but it’s been super reliable.

u/Plantabook · 1 pointr/houseplants

Oh yeah, thanks, I’ve been checking these greenhouses during my last trip in IKEA. Pity they’re too small(( I was thinking to buy an indoor greenhouse , but they are ugly and not sturdy at all (meaning the shelves won’t hold the pots’ weight).

u/mobscura · 1 pointr/SavageGarden

I'm actually closer to Sacramento, so winter nights gets a bit colder than the bay here. My plan is to have sundews, cephalotus, and young seedlings outside in a mini-greenhouse kinda like this.

I also keep all my plants on a covered patio, so there is some protection from the elements that way.

u/KnockItTheFuckOff · 1 pointr/gardening

How about picking up a small portable greenhouse?
