Questions & Answers

Is this a one time use kit?

Asked by: Daniel
Who ever told you this was a one timer clearly hadn't grown these. First you will get two flushes of mushrooms - one on either side of the box. But then you can break up the block and plant in straw and even wood shavings - hardwood not pine. or you can break up the block and mix with your garden. Mushrooms produce a feeding frenzy for other plants and are awesome companion s to any plant. Keep in mind, too, that each shrimp drops thousands of spores. Those are seeds to a shroom! We have actually found, to our great surprise and joy, beautiful Pearly Oysters growing in our firewood stacks. Mushrooms are amazing creatures!

Does this kit produce co2 or carbon dioxide when growing ?

Asked by: Romp
It’s a detritivore. By definition, yes it would produce a mild quantity of CO2. People and pets do, too.

They can vary in productivity, but if you follow the directions they work very well and grow lots of yummy oyster mushrooms. The photo attached is my current kit which has about another 4-6 days before I can start harvesting. Every little bump has the potential to become a nice mushroom. As you can see, this one is going crazy.

Way cool mushroom farm .These are great oysters, and considered a prime species for hunters and foodies alike! They grow extremely fast too, just like in the wild. From day one, after giving the block a good soak, you will notice growth . First a swelling, then a cauliflower looking growth, then suddenly, you'll see loads of baby buttons on tiny stems. Mist twice daily, keep out of direct sunlight. Some of mine were ready to harvest in 6 days. Do not eat mushrooms if the body/stem is anything other than bright white . If the caps start to crack, They may be tough. Saute your oysters in butter and wine serve as a side or a topping. Yummo!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome for little & big kids alike Loved this kit! Picked this up on a whim when my picky eating son said he may give mushrooms a chance if he could grow them. Done! Purchased the kit, my 9 year old followed the simple directions with some adult oversight. A week later, mushrooms are growing for us to enjoy. And, the company donates kits to classrooms so more kids can learn and be invested in the food they eat!!! Great product, great idea! Looking forward to trying another farm.

We had a great time with this and used the growth as an example for one of our children's science projects. We set this up and followed all of the instructions and within a week we started to see tiny mushrooms popping out from the side. By a week later the entire side was covered and we were ready to harvest. The entire time we were growing this we had our middle son charting the progress and taking pictures for a school project. My wife harvested all the mushrooms at one time and we started the next side which will be ready in a couple of days. The oyster mushrooms were pan seared along with onions to top steaks with and they tasted great.

My box of "Back To The Roots" Organic Mushroom Farm safely arrived 3 days ago. I have started growing these gourmet mushrooms using the indoor gardening box kit that came with the easy-to-follow directions printed right on the box. My first mushroom crop will be ready "to harvest" in 10 days...all I had to do was add water. The little sprouts have already begun to show! Since I have an outside garden and enjoy the produce grown there each year, this mushroom "box" garden fits "right in" with my lifestyle. I'm really quite pleased with the quality of this product! Thank you to the "Back to the Roots" inventors of this really neat product.

This mushroom growing kit is really impressive. Follow simple instructions and see mushrooms start to grow in one or two days. After that they grow amazingly fast, sometimes doubling every day. Get another growth from the back side of the kit, and maybe even a few more besides. My biggest problem was keeping it moist enough in our dry house, especially if we were gone for the day. The included mister helps quite a bit, but I also covered it lightly with plastic wrap and made sure that it was not in the sun (although it does need some light). Avoid the temptation of letting them get too large, as they can get a bit tough then. They tasted great sautéed with olive oil and onions! There’s also a great website that offers troubleshooting and tips. You can get a second, smaller crop from the other side of the growing medium “brick”, or if you want to wait awhile, place the container in the refrigerator until you are ready (within reason, I would guess). This is a live, product, so don’t expect to buy one then wait a year to use it, because it probably won't work. But it should last for a few months before you start. This probably isn’t cheaper than buying mushrooms at the grocery store, but really, this is more fun and education than anything. Great for kids, or yourself if you may be thinking of doing this on a larger scale in your garden. Makes a great gift, too.

Was really exciting to see the mushrooms growing, but after a few days they quit growing and got very hard - almost like a woody plant. We had watered/spritzed them, as directed. They only grew to about 1/2 the size shown on the box. We were really disappointed. My son was looking forward to harvesting them and cooking them.

This complete mushroom farm in a box has very easy to follow instructions. I started mine about a week and a half ago and yesterday I first noticed some small mushrooms starting out. In one day they've nearly doubled in size although they're still very small. This would also be a fun activity to teach kids about mushrooms. The suppliers of this farm are very enthusiastic mycologists and are eager to share their knowledge. I had questions about getting it to sprout a second time and they responded very quickly.
