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.

The claim in the packaging/web site is that you should at least get 2 harvests one on each side. My experience is that the results are pretty inconsistent.

Organic Mushroom Mini Farm is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 28.

I started these growing and pretty much followed the directions and they started growing perfectly. Within 2 days I had mini mushrooms which than did in fact double in size daily. They were ready for their first harvest within 7 days. However, you must water these several times a day, or the growing medium gets very hard. IN addition, make certain to place this box on top of a plate or bowl, because the bag and box do not hold in all the water and it WILL leak all over what it is sitting on. In addition - the mushrooms spore. The spores covered our table in a white film which had to be wiped off. So, unfortunately, we did not water them several times a day and the mushrooms dried up and the medium turned to virtual cement, so the farm is no good anymore. If you do water it or keep it in a moist climate - you should be able to grow lots of mushrooms and have fun. It would be nice if the designers worked on the box aspect. Cardboard does not stand up to lots of water.

On the first one, I got 8 oz of mushroom on one side and 3 oz on the other. The second one has been a disappointment thus far. On one side, I got just a 2 oz mushroom and other hasn't sprouted any after 10 days. The oyster mushrooms are tasty especially when fresh. I just wish the results were more consistent.

It grew like a monster then nothing happened. This time I sprayed it about 4 times a day and put it in an enclosed area. I think the first one dried out faster than being watered. It is growing like weeds. Kind of fun to grow.

It's been a few weeks now and nothing at all. I followed the directions as written and now I have a cardboard box that leaks brown water sitting on a shelf. :-(
