A Guide to Growing your Own Mushrooms with one of our Amazing Grow Kits
In your box you will find a bag of colonised substrate which was lovingly prepared for you in our farm in Somerset, these instructions, and a mister. The white stuff in the bag is mycelium. Mycelium produces mushrooms (the fruiting body) at the end of its life cycle, when conditions are right.
How to use your grow kit:
Remove the contents of the bag and carefully remove the perforated window. You will probably need a sharp knife to cut along the perforations.
Put the bag back in the box, close the top, and then cut a cross (about 5 cm x 5 cm) in the bag where it shows through the opened window. Your mushrooms will start growing from where the bag has been cut.
Put your box on a surface (e.g. bookshelf or work surface) in a lit room, but avoiding very bright, direct sunlight.
After a while (between a few days to a couple of weeks) you will see your mushrooms starting to 'pin'. When you see this, using the supplied bottle filled with tap water, start misting them lightly 2 or 3 times a day.
Growing times can vary between kits and different species, but we guarantee every kit.
