Grow Gourmet Mushrooms in the Kitchen!

Fruits for about 3 months, then becomes rich compost!
Now you can grow big crops of gourmet mushrooms right in your home! The Blue Oyster Countertop Mushroom Kit is so simple to use, all you need is water and a good appetite! It's the ideal gift for children, gardeners, and anyone who loves fresh mushrooms.

This kit contains supplemented wheat straw inoculated with blue oyster mushroom spawn. If that sounds complicated, it isn't -- it just means that the growing medium (wheat straw) is ready to go. Set the prepared bag anywhere indoors and mist it to keep it moist. Within days the mushrooms will begin growing, and your first crop will be ready in just a few weeks!

Blue Oyster Mushrooms grow year-round, and do best in indoor temperatures of 55 to 85 degrees Fahrenheit. They are, without a doubt, among the easiest of all mushrooms types to grow. And they re-crop frequently, continuing (with short rests) for about 11 weeks.

Once the last delicious crop has been harvested, toss the wheat straw culture into your compost bin. It will greatly enrich the compost, continuing to feed your plants for years to come! Talk about a win-win! 5 lbs.

Please allow up to 2 weeks for your kit to be custom-made for you!

Note: If you can't plant the plugs right away, the spawn may be refrigerated for 3 to 6 months, but never frozen. Do not let spawn sit in the sunlight.
