Questions & Answers

Is this a one time use kit?

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 49.

The box says the whole process takes about 12 days but our mushrooms were ready to harvest in about 9 days. It was amazing how fast they could grow. One day there was nothing there and the next there were huge mushrooms. We harvested about half a Tupperware full of mushrooms (see picture). You get a second harvest too, as well as seeds to plant heirloom tomatoes when you're done with the mushrooms. My only complaints were that the box stuck to my table leaving a mark and that the mushrooms spored all over the table leaving gross residue. I would definitely recommend putting a paper towel or something under the box. Also, for the price I could just go to the store and buy way more mushrooms, but I suppose the process is fun.

Fun and educational product with a few issues I was excited to get this mushroom kit going but life got in the way and it sat on my counter top for a couple of weeks. That's where the first issue showed up. Somehow the mushrooms got started and sprouted right through the box, which was pretty surprising but I don't think really caused any problems. Beyond that the mushrooms grew well. The included spray bottle was a bit of a hassle to use to keep everything moist but in the end was doable. I'm still waiting for the mushrooms to grow fully but things are going well. Overall this was a pretty fun kit but not something I'll likely pursue again the future given the price point and the amount of effort involved. Who is this for: Anyone looking for a fun project in growing their own food. Who isn't this for: Anyone looking to save money or have an easy experience growing food. Other Thoughts: I'm not sure what caused the mushrooms to sprout early but I'd check other reviews to see if it becomes a common problem.

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!

And it died within a day of having the lid removed, per instructions. Instructions were followed exactly. Do not buy this!!1
