Questions & Answers

How many times can you harvest these?

How many times can you harvest these?
Asked by: Layne
After you harvest the first time, let it dry out and do the process again. You may get one or more growth out of the kit. It depends on if the mycelium is still alive. When you are harvesting the mushrooms make sure you cut them off with a very sharp knife, never pull them off of the growing material, that can damage them. This is the only way to harvest mushrooms in the wild also. But make sure if you do, you identify what you are harvesting first.

Can I take this mushroom out of the box and put it in a pot?
Asked by: Bobbycobby
no, they are growing in a sterile substrate, and if you take them out, you will kill the mycelium, which is the root structure of the mushroom.

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.

Does this provide an ongoing/perennial harvest, or -once we've harvested the mushrooms - do we need to buy another kit?

Asked by: ljgeraci
1 maybe 3 harvests per box is my understanding but i'm a one-armed neophyte.

You can't separate the fact that Oyster mushrooms grow on straw, which does not smell bad. I was going to grow Agarics, or the common white pizza mushroom, but they only grow on media which smells bad. Another big plus is more bang for my buck. It looks like I'll be able to feed 10-15 Seniors at the Senior Center a mushroom each.
