Delicious, home-grown Shiitake mushrooms in just two weeks!
This fast-growing strain of Shiitake is our favorite mushroom here on the farm. Once you activate your Shiitake mushroom grow 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. Our Shiitake blocks produce 1-2 crops. Experience the joy and wonder of watching beautiful mushrooms grow before your eyes and then eating them!
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 mushroom grow kits are 100% Certified Organic blocks of enriched hardwood sawdust that is fully colonized by mycelium from our favorite hardy strain of Shiitake.
The kit arrived pronto! Even though I neglected to vent the plastic, I had a good harvest of smallish mushrooms within 10 days. It's been fun to watch them grow. Going to the basement to collect mushrooms is sure easier than plodding through the forest, peering through the undergrowth (though that's fun, too). I now know what I'll be sending out for birthday gifts.
I love Cascadia’s mushroom kits! I’ve grown both the Shittake and Blue Oyster kits, and right now I have Lion’s Mane kits growing! The instructions are easy to follow and there’s nothing quite like having fresh mushrooms ready for dinner time. I highly recommend them!
Had a great experience, mushrooms grew so fast, they were done in two weeks. Great tasting mushrooms.
I kept the mushroom garden inside and fell behind on the 4 times/day water misting, that and the plastic wrap I was using got too small. They started to dry up and shrivel and I thought it was a goner so I put it outside in the rain - woke up the next day to an explosion of shiitake! I got a kit for my mom and she did the same - same results. Now we eat mushrooms every day!. FYI We live in Oregon and it’s rainy and cold outside
It was great for the first harvest but poor growth after that.
Thank you for leaving a review! Our shiitake blocks only produce 1-2 crops. If you are looking for more continuous growth (3-5 crops) I would recommend our oyster mushroom kit.
