Previous - Next

2180. The mushroom-house is a genus of plant-habitation, which differs from the others in requiring very little light. The simplest form of the mushroom-house is that of an open shed or roof, supported on props, for throwing off the rain, and protecting from perpendicular cold. Under this, the mushrooms are grown on ridges, covered by straw, &c., to maintain the requisite temperature.
