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.

Followed the directions, and the Shiitkes started to pop our right away. Very pleased

A gift for my husband who has talked about wanting to grow mushrooms at home for a while. He was initially somewhat dubious about this kit, but after commenting on how the baby mushrooms showed up quickly, he now calls me over during most mistings to observe how fast the mushrooms are growing. We're excited for our first and future harvests!

Package arrived in great condition. After following directions, the shiitake, once started, grew noticeably each day. A pleasure to watch these grow - shades of elementary school science classes! At first harvest, the largest was approximately 5.5 inches in diameter. The Cascadia team answered my questions rapidly via email and with spirit. Edible, good fun during the Covid lockdown. Awaiting second growth now. Cooks nicely with onions.

We are really enjoying learning about mycology, and watching our very productive shiitake kit erupt with mushrooms after just a few days. We've shared pics and videos with friends and family of the daily (and sometimes hourly) progress of our little mushroom crop, and everyone wants one now. Highly recommended for those who are curious about the fascinating world of mushrooms.

My premixed substrate arrived quickly, and starting popping mushroom buttons just as fast! Great condition and the growth has been incredible to watch the last few days.

My family is so excited about this science experiment/culinary art project. The mushrooms are already starting bloom and it’s only been a couple of days. My wife LOVES mushrooms and it’s all she can do to keep her hands off of them while they do their thing.
Thank you, Cascadia Mushrooms for making this fun family experience possible. We are already thinking of friends and family we want to gift some of these grow kits.

We have been very happy with our shiitake kit. It only took a day to two to begin producing and hardly any effort to get growing. Great service, nice folks, quick shipping. Will definitely shop with these folks again.
