Here are answers to the questions we get most often from our customers. For more detailed information about growing each individual type of mushroom, check out our page on how to grow mushrooms.
Why isn’t my kit producing mushrooms?
Where do I put my mushroom kit?
Our kits are intended to be grown indoors. There is less temperature variance and pest pressure. There are seasons suitable for outdoor growth, like spring and fall in mild climates.
How do I know when to harvest?
What will I need to grow mushrooms?
When will I see mushrooms?
How long will the block produce mushrooms for?
Which kit is easiest?
What mushrooms can be grown outdoors?
When do I need to start my kit?
What is the mushroom block made of?
Why did my kit arrive in a black bag?
The black plastic reduces light exposure and prevents early growth in the bag. Black bags increase yields in specialty crops like Blue Oyster, Cosmic Queen and Lion's Mane. We photo all our kits in clear bags but ship our kits in the bags we use here. Don't be scared of the black bag, it's going to result in more mushrooms!
