The quickest, easiest, most reliable mushroom kit we've ever seen!

With this handy kit you'll soon be picking delicious fresh mushrooms straight from the windowsill, at a fraction of the cost of buying them at the supermarket. Kit comprises base tray, lid and pre-spawned substrate.

Dimensions: 17.5cm (7") x 27.5cm (11") x 8cm (3½") depth.

Mushrooms are marvellous! Low in calories, high in protein and great sources of fibre - for those on plant-based diets. They also provide you with B vitamins, selenium, potassium, copper and can help with the production of vitamin D. And they're delicious too! Saute, fry, roast or create superb soups.

Growing Information

Full growing instructions included.

Always wash your hands before you handle any of the kits to avoid bacteria contaminating the substrates and development of other moulds.

The kit contains a base tray, plastic lid and a plastic bag containing a “spawned” substrate.

When opening the kit, check if the substrate has grown completely white, otherwise cover
the base tray with the plastic lid and store for 10–14 days at 20–25°C. Make sure that you
leave the plastic bag around the substrate.

1. Cultivation: You start the cultivation process by making five 2-3cm incisions/slits in the plastic containing the substrate. Then water the substrate with ¼ litre of water, so that the surface is moist then leave the set with the plastic lid on at a temperature of 20-25°C.


2. After around 2 weeks, white pins appear, now put the kit in a room where daylight enters, at a temperature of 10–15°C but not in direct sunlight.

3. Make sure that the surface of the substrate never dries out. Moisten at least once a day with a plant spray making sure it does not become too wet. From the white pins, small stems with
grey dots appear, the so-called “cluster”. Continue to spray the mushrooms daily to prevent them drying out during fruiting.

4. Harvesting: total harvesting time may extend to three months. A cluster must be pulled out from the substrate with a turning movement, making sure that no part of flesh remains in the substrate.

Before consumption, trim the mushroom 1cm below the gills. The stems, which are slightly
tougher, can be used to make a sauce or soup.

Now the cycle repeats itself at point 3. 

You may harvest 3 times from the set. Before each harvest run, make 5 new incisions/slits
in the plastic.

Good luck and bon appetit!
