This kit contains supplemented wheat straw inoculated with golden oyster mushroom spawn. If that sounds complicated, it isn't -- it just means that the growing medium (wheat straw) is ready to go, so you don't have to plant or fool with it in any way. Simply set the prepared bag down and mist it to keep it moist. The mushrooms will immediately begin growing, and your first crop will be ready in about 3 to 4 weeks!
Golden Oyster Mushrooms grow from May to September, and need temperatures of 65 to 85 degrees Fahrenheit. For most of us, that's room temperature! It couldn't be easier to grow these delectable mushrooms!
Oyster mushrooms are, without a doubt, among the easiest of all mushrooms types to grow. This golden variety is especially delectable, because when sauteed it has a nutty, cashew-like flavor you'll love. Best of all, it re-crops after a short rest, so you will have fresh eating for several months.
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.
This item is available to ship May through September only. Please allow up to 2 weeks for your kit to be custom-made for you!
Note: If you can't start growing right away, the spawn may be refrigerated for up to 1 month, but don't let it freeze!
