A: Hi there, There is no expiration date on the Mushroom Farm but we recommend growing it within the first few months for the best results. That said, if you remove the farm from the box and it's firm and covered in a white coating, it's growable. If the farm is dark and mushy, it's very old and won't grow. Sincerely, The Back to the Roots Customer Support Team
A: You can mix your mushroom kit substrate (the brick-like block your mushrooms are growing out of) into sawdust, coffee grounds, straw bale, or other cellulose rich material in a large bucket or pot. Make sure the substrate (new) is moist but not mud like. Here is a video that might help with how to set up a second harvest. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ulqgw-OosuM
A: You definitely can grow multiple harvests, but they won't continuously from the same area after you harvest them. We have tons of tips and examples of how people have experimented with their mushroom kits. We'd love to share this and more with you!-- if you email us at Contact@backtotheroots.com :)
A: We guarantee one harvest from our Mushroom Mini-Farm and Mushroom Farm. That said, each kit is unique and can grow multiple times! We encourage you to keep experimenting and growing your kit. There are a few different ways you can grow your kit for a 2nd time. The first way is by growing your kit in the original box just like you did the first time. The other way to grow your 2nd crop is a little more experimental and out of the box -- literally! You can mix your mushroom kit substrate into sawdust, coffee grounds, straw bale, or other cellulose rich material in a large bucket or pot. Make sure the substrate (new) is moist but not mud like. Here is a link to a video on one way to grow your second crop: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ulqgw-OosuM Hope this helps!
