Organic Indoor Mushroom Growing Kits
Growing your own mushrooms is one of the most unique and rewarding experiences and the fruits of your labor are beautiful and tasty! Each kit consists of pure mushroom mycelium growing on a sterilized medium, or substrate. The substrate will vary depending on the mushroom being grown; Shiitake Mushroom Patch grows on a mixture of enriched hardwood sawdust and wood chips for example, while the Pearl Oyster Mushroom Patch grows in a bag of pasteurized wheat straw. Each kit Certified Organic by the Washington State Department of Agriculture.
One Mushroom Patch will yield 2 to 3 pounds of fresh organic mushrooms over a 16 week life cycle. There are ways to extend your "mycelial mileage" by transporting your kit outdoors into a hardwood log (alder or oak work well). After an incubation period of 6 to 12 months the log can produce mushrooms for years to come.
"Last year I bought a shiitake kit and it was a big log thing they sent me, well I plopped it in a dish and sprayed it down here and there and it grew TONS of HUGE mushrooms, then I got hooked." Dave Z.

Please note if you are giving the mushroom patch as a gift:
Each Mushroom patch can be held for 30 days until it needs to be activated. Pearl Oyster patches can be held for 1 week or less before they need to be activated (these will activate on their own if they are held for too long). The rest of our kits can be held for 2 weeks before needing to be activated or observed. Also, because they are live items and have such a short time before needing to grow there are no returns on Mushroom Kits. Our supplier will not take them back. They will offer assistance if the mushrooms are not growing.
