Mushrooms are grown in a controller environment called a Growing Room. Temperature is maintained between 68 and 70 degrees. Humidity between 88% and 93%. CO2 levels are maintained below 900 PPM. Special 9,000K LED lights are on in the growing room 12 hours per day. Temperature, humidity and CO2 is monitored with a TCW data server. As temperature and humidity rise and or fall, heating and humidity equipment is turned on/off automatically. Special filtering systems are in place to capture mushroom spores so as to maintain a clean and healthy environment. Mushrooms are grown on a 7" bag of sterilized sawdust made from compressed wood pellets with no chemicals. No chemicals, pesticides or insecticides are used in the growing process.
