Turn All Your Paper and Coffee Waste into Mushrooms!

Dried vegetable material, biodegrable packaging materials, and more!
Well, here's a great idea to perk up the recycling bin: turn all of your wood, paper, dried vegetable matter, and even coffee grounds and filters into a healthy, delicious crop of Warm Blue Oyster Mushrooms! With this 5-pound bulk kit, you can inoculate up to 25 gallons of waste and be dining on gourmet mushrooms in mere weeks!

All you need is wood and paper fibers in a recycling bin or bucket. Used coffee grounds and filters work too, as do dried (not fresh) vegetable materials. Mushrooms love these materials, and they make the perfect spawning ground!

This bulk kit will inoculate up to 25 gallons of cardboard, coffee, shredded paper, and more -- for most homes, the entire output of your paper waste. If you want to start with something a bit smaller, try the 1-pound kit, which inoculates up to 5 gallons of paper and wood matter.

Blue Oyster Mushrooms are a delicacy, seldom available in supermarkets because they are best eaten very fresh. And nothing's fresher than straight from your compost bin!

This kit fruits in just weeks, making it a great project for kids as well as their parents and grandparents. Grow gourmet mushrooms from the trash you'd normally toss into the compost pile! 5 pounds.

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.
