Some professional farmers use 53’ trailers are mushroom grow boxes as well. Regardless of the size, there are a few things that all mushroom boxes should have in common. For instance:
  • You will want a clean, controlled area to use while fruiting mushrooms.
  • The area will be wet with a high humidity. A concrete floor with or near a drain is helpful.
  • You want to make sure you can clean it easily. It does not need to be sterile or hyper clean, but we do clean our grow room weekly.
  • A rectangular shape is preferred for a mushroom grow box because the air flow can disturb the air more evenly in this design. Otherwise there could be corners that do not receive enough airflow, which could ultimately lead to contamination.
  • Airflow with adequate oxygen, and not high levels of CO2, is necessary for fruiting mushrooms.
  • You will need to exhaust the air out of the mushroom box or grow room.
