Product Overview

Homegrown goodness has never been so easy with the Back to the Roots Mushroom Kit. Back to the Roots gourmet mushroom kit enables urban apartment dwellers, suburban homeowners to rural farmers to quickly and easily grow up to a pound and a half of gourmet oyster mushrooms. Contained in each kit is a special mixture of recycled coffee grounds and mushroom seeds encased in a compostable box with a spray mister. Removal of either of the two perforated sides will reveal coffee grounds covered in a white layer called mycelium - the root of the mushroom. Our mushrooms bloom best when away from central air and heat and placed in a setting where there's indirect sunlight (e.g. kitchen window sill). Cut two slits in a + shape in the exposed plastic. Then, show your mushrooms some love by spritzing them at least twice a day. In 7 days, you'll see the baby mushrooms pop out and begin doubling in size every day until about day 10 when you harvest. Bonus Tip: Soaking the bag of coffee grounds and mushroom mycelium after cutting the + shaped slit overnight does wonders for encouraging a happy harvest. Back to the Roots (BTTR) is a 100% sustainable urban mushroom farm in Oakland, California. In 2011, Back to the Roots collected, diverted and reused 1 million lbs. of coffee grounds and helped families grow over 250,000 lbs. of fresh gourmet mushrooms in their own homes.

Customer Questions & Answers

Is this a one time use kit?

Asked by: Daniel
I read you can keep reusing it until it stops growing mushrooms. I just harvested my first one, I am expecting another to grow.

Mushroom Mini-Farm, Oyster Mushrooms: Takes concentrated effort to mind-the-farm and make sure it's spritz with water several times every day. Also, you need to "pick" your mushrooms before they start to dry out and form splits along the edges of the mushroom cap. I did get some nice flavorful mushrooms but only about 5 oz total...and again, that with effort and babysitting them...no significant 2nd crop was obtainable with my efforts. Directions are sparse/lacking...yield was very low considering effort and money paid; you're not even harvesting a full pound nor anything near a pound! Although the first crop was tasty, I wouldn't recommend this kit because of the poor yield.

I am eating a taco (recipe on box) made from the mushrooms, as I write this. It was easy to do, seriously... just scrape and soak in water for a few hours Then water daily. I might get another. The tacos are delicious.
