The first one was fantastic got the 2nd one growing
Bought a couple of kits for my husband for x-mas. Super easy to set up and in a few weeks we were gorging ourselves on delicious shiitakes! This couldn’t be easier. We will be signing up for the subscription next as we just adore shiitakes. Tip: after the first flush of mushrooms, he submerged the block in cold water for a couple of hours and we are about to harvest our second flush. It is about 3/4 of the initial flush, but hey- more mushrooms - yay! We are also going to bury the block in a pile of wood chips outdoors after this second flush to see if we can keep it going.
The kits are already fruiting. Thanks for your efforts.
3 lbs. of Shiitake mushrooms in the first flush!
The latest grow kit has produced 3 pounds of fresh mushrooms. This grow kit is well worth the money. I do recommend buying a clear rectangular plastic container w/lid, and drill holes in as described in the instructions included with the kit. I also used 1" of perlite in the bottom for retaining moisture.
Nice really fast and easy to grow lions main is a lot slower than the shiitake but they are getting bigger . The shiitake we had in 4 days and the flavor of those mushrooms is out of this world . We have cut the 3 times and there still growing . Love it . Now we are preparing our mushroom beads for our garden giants . So we will see in the spring .
