As the title suggests, I'm a newbie to mushroom growing. I want to grow Agaricus bitorquis (this will be from a kit), but I have a question about possible cross breeding/contamination.

I live in New England in an old post-victorian house that has a tamped earth/victorian construct basement. It maintains the proper temps for mushroom growing, but sometimes when we heavy rains, I get some water in there. This often produces some fungi (mushrooms) of unknown type on the floor.

My question is this: Will the appearance of these unknown mushrooms contaminate my planted stock. My kit will be well above the floor.

Thank you in advance,
