It is easy to describe the conditions under which mushrooms may be grown, but it does not follow that a crop may be predicted with any certainty. For many years, careful studies have been made of the growing of mushrooms from spores and of the principles involved in the making of spawn.
Among all works, one of the oldest and probably still the best is the Mushroom Growing Handbook, originally published in the 1910s, and authored by an American plant physiologist and professor of botany.
This comprehensive handbook has accurately and faithfully described the requirements and procedures for success in mushroom cultivation and spawn-making. It's a must-read for any and all would-be mushroom growers.
