*****When ordering gifts for Christmas or for the holidays, earlier than December 11th, please make a note with your order. Mushroom kits need to be started within a month or so of when they are received, to ensure best production. To mitigate this we will ship out all holiday orders the week of the 11th of December to ensure the kits are fresh and arrive on time. Thank you and Happy Holidays!
Delicious, home-grown Shiitake in just two weeks! This fast-growing strain of Shiitake is our favorite mushroom here on the farm. Once you activate you mushroom kit the first harvest will begin growing and will form big beautiful mushrooms over 10 to 14 days. Once the first crop has been harvested just soak the kit in cold water overnight and a new crop will begin growing in just another two weeks.
The mushrooms are easily grown indoors at temperatures averaging 60-70ºF, they prefer indirect light and require a daily misting to maintain humidity. Our Shiitake kits are 100% Certified Organic blocks of enriched hardwood sawdust that is fully colonized by mycelium from our favorite hardy strain of Shiitake.

Ive bought a couple things from Cascadia and its always worth it. The blocks are great quality and easy to grow on your own. If you are even just thinking about trying it out, do it. Its really cool to seem them grow. Besides great products they are an amazing company that cares about what they are doing and their customers. I cannot speak highly enough about the interactions I have had with everyone there.
