Oyster Mushroom Growing Instructions

+

Step 1: Open
Open the paper bag and remove the plastic bag containing your mushroom block. Cut a long slit on one side of the plastic bag from corner to corner.

KEEP THE BLOCK INSIDE OF THE PLASTIC BAG.

Step 2: Place
Find a good spot for your block to live for the next few weeks. An ideal spot would be in the most humid part of your house on a counter top or shelf. Keep out of direct sunlight and away from drafts or heaters. Stand the bag up and the mushrooms will grow from the slit.

Step 3: Care
Use a spray bottle to mist around the slit of your block and prevent it from drying out. Misting daily should be plenty while you wait for mushrooms to appear. Mist a few times a day once mushrooms start to appear. If the environment around the block is extremely dry (winter) use the provided humidity tent. Set the tent over the block and mist inside the tent to create a humid environment.

* Ideal humidity is 90% when the block is getting ready to pin and 70% as the mushrooms are growing. Try to maintain light condensation inside the grow tent. Remove the tent once the mushrooms are almost full size.

* Do not put the block inside of an enclosure that will restrict fresh air. Oyster mushrooms require a fair amount of fresh air exchange to develop large caps. Limiting fresh air will cause long stems and small caps.

Step 4: Harvest
Now the exciting part! Typically between 1 - 3 weeks you should start to see little mushroom pins starting to poke out of the slit in your bag. Mist multiple times a day and make sure the mushrooms are not drying out. Thing move fast from here and in about 4 days you will have full sized mushrooms ready to pick and eat! Pick when the caps are big and open and before the caps fully flatten out and the edges of the caps start to crack.

Step 5: Rehydrate
After you have harvested the mushrooms simply continue misting daily and within 3 weeks you should get an additional flush of mushrooms. If at any point the block seems really dry you can soak it in a large pot of cold tap water overnight to rehydrate it. You can get 2 - 4 flushes of mushrooms from this block.

* You may not need to soak between the first and second flush. Try not to exceed 8 hours when soaking.

FAQ - Oyster Mushroom Kit

Where should I place the kit while growing?

+

Find a good spot for your block to live for the next few weeks. An ideal spot would be on a counter top or shelf in the most humid part of your house.

Keep out of direct sunlight and away from drafts or heaters. The kit includes a separate plastic bag to be used as a humidity tent.

Roll the opening of this bag up a few times like a pant leg and stand it over the block like a tent. 

How many mushrooms does each kit make?

+

After 7-10 days you should start to see little mushroom pins starting to poke out of the slit in your bag.

The actual mushrooms will take about one week to mature. While the mushrooms are actively growing mist multiple times a day to make sure the mushrooms do not dry out.

Harvest when the mushroom starts to develop hanging icicle like structures. 

*To develop nice hanging teeth the humidity must be controlled pretty well. Try not to soak the mushroom itself with water too much when misting. Try to maintain around 85% humidity while growing. A light condensation on the inside of the grow tent is perfect.

How should I store the kit if im not going to open it?

+

You can expect your Mushroom Kit to arrive withing 3/5 days of placing you order with us! We ship are kits out weekly after they pass all of our quality control standards!

Can I keep growing mushrooms after the first harvest?

+

After you have harvested the mushrooms simply continue misting daily and within 3 weeks you should get an additional flush of mushrooms.

If at any point the block seems really dry you can soak it in a large pot of cold tap water overnight to rehydrate it.

You can get 2 - 4 flushes of mushrooms from this block.

 *You probably will not need to soak between the first and second flush of mushrooms. After the second flush try soaking for no longer than 8-hours.
