Mushroom growing kit offers an enjoyable, uncomplicated way to grow food. These kits typically include a box or a log already seeded with spores. Keep the kit moist and at a constant temperature to see results with fun, edible varieties. Mushroom kits are low-maintenance and don’t require the same weeding or watering a garden does, but with so many types available, you might find your family’s new favorite ingredient. It’s easier and more affordable than you might think to grow your own mushrooms anywhere from the backyard to the living room. Small space and low light? No problem. Low maintenance mushrooms don’t mind. Shiitakes, golden oysters, blue oysters, lion’s mane…the list of edible mushrooms goes on and on.
A mushroom growing kit is essentially a pre-colonized “fruiting block” which has not yet been put into conditions that make it want to fruit mushrooms.
The mycelium covered block is typically contained in a mushroom grow bag, which can sit dormant for quite some time, especially if it’s kept cool in the fridge.
You can buy mushroom growing kit for a variety of different types of mushrooms, although some species make for better kits than others. One of the most common types of mushrooms you will find in a grow kit is Pleurotus ostreatus – the regular ol’ “oyster mushroom.”
Oyster mushrooms are pretty resilient to contamination, they fruit relentlessly, and they can grow on a whole whack of different substrates.
They are super tenacious, and can fruit mushrooms even if conditions aren’t picture perfect- making them an excellent choice for a kit.
Oysters also grow really quickly, which increases the chances of success. Most mushroom growing kit only require a few simple steps and minimal maintenance, although the chances of success and potential harvest size increases greatly if the mushroom block is properly prepared and placed in ideal conditions.
Make your first grow successful with an easy to use kit! Three easy steps:
All of our mushroom growing kits are produced with care in a sterile laboratory. We keep a limited stock, so the grow kits are shipped as fresh as possible. There are dozens of producers of magic mushroom grow kits. We have tested nearly all types of mushroom kits available on the market and subjected them to thorough testing. We only sell the grow kits in our catalog that are most reliable and have a good yield. Because the market is dynamic, we continue to test new types of kits, looking for ones that meet our standards.
After the preparation process, which uses minimal effort and is done within the length of a day, your first mushrooms will pop out of the substratum after two weeks! Harvesting can begin a few days later.
The growing process can be repeated several times, until the nutrients in the substrate are depleted. The first flush (growing spree) of mushrooms will be the largest and the following flushes will be smaller and smaller until no mushrooms grow up anymore. The average result after depletion is between the 300 and 400 grams of fresh mushrooms when the ideal conditions are met. If you take in account that the recommended dose is a portion of 15 grams fresh mushrooms, we will let you do the math!
