The cultivation of milky mushroom is usually carried out in transparent polythene covers. The size of the cover should be 60 x 30 cm, with a thickness of 80 gauge. 


  • Wash hands thoroughly with antiseptic lotion.

  • Take the polythene cover and tie the bottom end wit a thread and turn it inwards.

  • Mix the dried straw thoroughly to get a uniform moisture level in all areas.

  • Take out well-grown bed spawn, squeeze thoroughly and divide into two halves. (Two beds are prepared from the single spawn bag)

  • Fill the straw to a height of 3” in the bottom of polythene bag, take a handful of spawn and sprinkle over the straw layer , concentrating more on the edges.   

  • Fill the second layer of the straw to a height of 5” and spawn it as above. 

  • Repeat this process to get five straw layers with spawns.  

  • Gently press the bed and tie it tightly with a thread.

  • Put 6 ventilation holes randomly for ventilation as well as to remove excess moisture present inside the bed.
