Growing Mushrooms in Beijing’s hutongs: 在北京胡同种植香菇

Photo of the Week presents: growing mushrooms in a hutong in Beijing

This photo taken in the hutongs of Beijing show that mushrooms can be cultivated anywhere. I recognise enoki and possibly shitake and edible fungus 木耳 , but i think there are other varieties as well.

Mushroom growing is a hobby that I am just starting.
