Oyster Mushroom :
Just spray and grow!

Oyster mushrooms are beloved the world over for their delicate texture and savory flavor. Oyster mushrooms are more expensive than white button mushrooms and take little prep since they can be used whole or chopped.

Oyster mushrooms also take on a tender, pleasing texture when cooked. Cooking methods like frying, roasting, and grilling can retain more texture in the mushrooms while braising and sautéing makes them softer.

Our Oyster mushroom kits are reliable producers and tend to yield large flushes of beautiful light yellowish-brown and deep pastel pink mushrooms when given adequate humidity. With continued proper care, you should be able to get multiple flushes. (We 100% guarantee your first flush of mushrooms, but hope you’ll try for 2 or 3!)

Substrate : The block inside the box is substrate. It is sawdust and soybean hull completely colonized with mycelium.

Spray Bottle : Fill up the bottle and spray to keep the mushrooms humid.

How to Grow ?
1) Inside this box is an amended sawdust block that has been completely colonized by mushroom mycelium. Open the front of your kit along the perforated line and dispose of the remaining cardboard.

2) Slice an 3 parallel lines into the plastic underneath with a sharp knife or scissors.

3) Fill the sprayer included in your kit with tap water and spritz the plastic where you sliced your ‘X’ shape. Spritz your kit at least twice daily – more if you’re in a particularly dry climate. (If your mushrooms start to grow but dry up and die, your growing conditions may be too dry and you should make a humidity tent! See instructions below).

4) Place your kit in the most humid part of your home and outside of direct sunlight. We suggest putting it on a kitchen counter close to a sink. The mushroom mycelium will sense the oxygen in the air and produce mushroom ‘pins,’ another term for ‘baby mushrooms.’ This will usually begin to happen within two weeks of slicing the plastic.

5) Harvest before the caps flatten out and become concave. Mushrooms grow quickly, so when you spot your first pins keep an eye on them. Mushrooms should be ready to harvest 2-4 days after pinning
