Is this for indoors or outdoors? Under what conditions? Indoors in the basement in the dark? Or by a window? Outdoors only in shade. Outdoors can it be rained on?
Asked by: NoGreenThumb
Indoors! But it needs some sunlight, so not the basement.

I've just started growing mushrooms in 5 gallon containers - when I saw this table top version. I wanted to see the evolution of the mushrooms close up. I followed the instructions, soaking the growing medium for 6 hours, cut an X in the window side and placed on our kitchen table, with indirect light. Boy, did these mushrooms take off! 3 days after planting, the small pins showed up. They doubled in size overnight and kept growing! They fully matured in 6 days and were ready to harvest. We used them to make some delicious mushroom omelets - mmmmm good! It works - it really works! Would make a great gift or conversation piece for any table!

We've purchased bigger, more expensive mushroom growing kits previously, but thought this would be fun to try out. We followed the instructions and the mushrooms grew rapidly -- faster than indicated on the box (box dates are just guidelines). Super, simple easy care. We placed the box on the kitchen table (to the side) where it would get indirect light. Mushrooms loved it there because we had them sprouting within 3 days. By the 9th day, it was time to harvest. Loved watching these grow and got the kids interested and involved as well. We harvested the first batch yesterday and plan to eat them tonight. Beautiful, clean oyster mushrooms. Harvest #1 was over 7 ounces of oyster mushrooms.

This is a great way to get exotic mushrooms at home that couldn't be fresher. This kit comes with easy to follow instructions, and mine grew ahead of schedule. We were able to harvest just 10 days after starting! This is a great if you have kids, as you can almost see these grow. The company's website has instructional videos that are quite helpful. The box also has a recipe on it that we sort of followed. We sauteed our oyster mushroom crop with garlic and spinach, and made a delicious pizza. the website has instructions for raising a 2nd crop, I am starting that process now. What a cool product!

The Back to the Roots Organic Oyster Mushroom Mini Farm is a fun, easy way to grow your own fresh, organic mushrooms. The first 5-7 days you are adding a few teaspoons of water to the package to provide the perfect, humid, grow environment. Once you see the mushrooms start to emerge you just sit back and wait. About two weeks is all it takes to have mushrooms ready to harvest. The cool things is that you can get more than one crop per package. Flip the block around and start over. Maybe a little more expensive than a trip to the grocery store but you just can't beat growing your own food and it can be a great way to get kids involved in something they can appreciate for a lifetime.

This is a really neat product. We first started with the one that grows cherry tomatoes, and then we got this one to grow mushrooms. There are very simple and easy to follow instructions on the packaging. It is very easy to set up. You just soak the bag that comes inside the box in water over night and then put it back in the box and put it in indirect light and the mushrooms grow right out of the packaging. It is really cool. This would make a great project to do with young children.

I followed the instructions and was not optimistic there would be mushrooms. It has only been 8 days and amazing there are actual mushrooms starting to grow. At first I thought it was just bubbling up then as I watched little by little you can start to see the mushroom caps start to form. I am attaching photos look close and you will see. Looking forward to using these when they are ready.

I am a fan of mushrooms, whether its sauteed, on pizza, stir fried, in soup, or just eaten raw. So I am super excited to see if these mushroom farms are an efficient way of growing some fresh mushrooms for consumption. The kit is very simple to setup and as soon as you slit the bag open you can really smell the mycelium. I gave it a good soak for 10 hours and now it is sitting near a window waiting to grow.
