FAQ - Shiitake 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.
