I recently started offering Mushroom Grow Kits on my website, so I thought I would grow one out to show how easy it is to produce fresh mushrooms indoors!
I picked the Shiitake Mushroom Patch first.
I ordered the kit on Thursday and it arrived at my
door on Monday by UPS.
Then the kit had to go in the refrigerator for 4 days. After that was 4 hours of soaking in water to initiate the flush!
The humidity tent went on and it was misted 4 times a day. I started to see life right away!
That is a perfect Shiitake in my world! I harvested about 1 pound and now it will rest for a couple weeks and I will start the cycle again. I will repeat this 4 or 5 times or until the kit only produces tiny mushrooms. Then comes the bonus…the kit will be used to inoculate some logs!
