If you live in the apartment house, the only remedy is to create a microclimate on the balcony or to buy a special device for growing plants – a grow box. The implementation of the whole idea depends only on your proficiency as an agronomist and physicist. So growing mushrooms does not always resemble working in the garden. If you live in a separate house, you might have a cellar, which is an ideal place for growing mushrooms. Humidity level is always high there.
