Tan Teik Khang, who studied advertising and worked in Kuala Lumpur, chose to return home to assist his parents. It helped that he did not miss the hectic city lifestyle.
Taking us to a shaded area filled with sawdust mounts, he explained how mushroom farmers cultivate the fungi. Apart from growing it in a damp environment, there is a formula to making the enriched soil, along with a particular way to pack and store them in greenhouses.
Every greenhouse is reserved for different kinds of mushrooms. According to Tan, there are 6 types of mushrooms cultivated in the farm, including the white oyster mushroom, grey oyster mushroom, lingzhi and, the newest addition of the lot, the rare susu harimau.
We were each given a mushroom growing pack to bring home, which can be kept in damp places like a bathroom and harvested about 5 to 8 times.
