How does the kit work?

Growing mushrooms at home has never been simpiler:

  • Place the kit in a room with natural light

  • Cut a hole in the side 
  • Spray with water
  • Sit back and watch the mushrooms grow

Our role:

  • We pasturise waste coffee, straw, and woodchip to remove any other fungi living on the growth medium
  • We then inncoluate the mixture with grey oyster mushroom spawn
  • The mixture is then incubated in our farm for two weeks until the mushroom spawn has colonised the mixture

Detailed instructions

  • Cut a hole in the box around the dotted line and then cut a ‘X’ in the plastic bag underneath.
  • Place the kit in a room with natural light
  • Using a spray bottle, water the kit once per day and wait 7-10 days for the mushrooms to grow
  • When the mushroom caps start to flatten, they are ready to pick - visit our Instagram and Facebook pages to see examples
  • Pick the mushrooms by twisting or cutting them where the stem meets the block
  • To maximise the growth of successive crops, remove the block from the cardboard box, soak in a bucket of water overnight, drain and return to the box.
  • Each kit produces approximately 500 – 600g of mushrooms over several crops

    This made a fantastic birthday present for a green-fingered friend who loves to grow her own. Fascinating to see it grow, which is such a quick process when it gets going that it makes quite the spectacle and conversation piece. With the pay off of a great mushroom meal at the end, it cropped a second time once it had had a breather. Excellent experience.

    Mushroom gift

    Bought as a gift for my mushroom loving daughter. She started to use the kit 3 days ago. Still waiting for the first mushrooms to appear, promising looking bulging happening behind the cutout circle!

    Fun & Delicious

    Our 2nd kit was no less interesting and delicious as our first. It certainly won't be our last!

    Birthday Mushrooms

    I got this for my partner for his birthday and considering he doesn't have green fingers he found it very easy to grow them! And I am not a big fan of mushrooms but we fried them in the air fryer and it was super tasty! We harvested 250g after in the first crop about 8/9 days and have followed the instructions and are hoping for a 2nd crop.

    Excellent kit

    The instructions were good, the mushrooms grew quickly and I have had a large quantity already. Hopefully I’ll get a second crop
