How many pounds will this make?
Asked by: Cynthia24
Hey there! Each box is unique so we can't give you an exact amount it will grow. ~1.5 lb is realistic expectation. Hope this helps!

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.

Organic Mushroom Farm is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 56.

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!

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.

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.

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.

The other, well it sprouted several teeny tiny ones that were tough as shoe leather in a day after popping up. I did exactly was the instructions said and have zero to show for it. According to the box and info on the site, I should have several pounds out of both of them by now and getting ready to pop the other side to start another crop. That never happened. I am returning these. What a sham. Maybe I got one with no spores in it, or put together incorrectly, or their instructions are dead wrong. Do not buy this!

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.

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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I was excited to try this innovative concept . I like mushrooms and I've never tried oyster mushrooms. I followed directions on the package to a T. I first soaked the block overnight then misted twice a day and kept them out of direct sunlight for ten days. The mushrooms grew as advertised. On day eight I could not wait and picked one of the larger mushrooms. I sliced it up and sauteed it in butter. DELICIOUS!! But the directions say 10 days to harvest. On day ten the mushrooms seemed to be cracking on the edges. I harvested a meager crop 2.3 oz. and prepared them. They were tough and stringy. So disappointing!!! I have the option to open the other side of the package and try again. I'm not so sure it's worth the effort.
