This paper presents an automated environmental monitoring and control system for mushroom vertical farming in a refurbished shipping container. We describe the architecture of our NVIDIA Jetson Nano-based system and present the outcome of our successful attempts at cultivating Oyster mushrooms. The most important environmental parameters for healthy Oyster mushroom growth are temperature and humidity. We discuss the issues and challenges faced in this work and suggest ways to improve the current system in order to cultivate high-value mushrooms.
