  • How does consultation work?
    You'll be connected with a fungi expert via WhatsApp! You can message them whenever you'd like during normal business hours and will receive a reply within hours.
  • How long does it take to grow mushrooms?
    You can expect to grow a full crop of mushrooms in as little as six weeks. However, this depends on how well you're able to maintain temperatures. You'll need to keep the jars at about 75-58 degrees Fahrenheit for 2 weeks. And you'll need to keep the soil at the same temperature for the same amount of time. Then you can drop the temp to the low 70's for another 2 weeks. If your temperature is lower during the first 2 steps, you can expect a slightly longer time between inoculation and harvest.
  • What kinds of mushrooms can I grow using these kits?
    You can grow most edible, gourmet and artistic mushrooms using this process. But you can also grow almost any kind of mycelium using this process.
  • How many mushrooms will a kit produce?
    You can expect about 4 ounces of dried fruit bodies.
  • What is a flush and how many flushes does each MiniTub produce?
    A flush is a "crop" of mushrooms. Most growers harvest mushrooms when they begin to break their veil, or right before the mushrooms release their spores. Each MiniTub produces about 4 flushes.
  • What do I do when my MiniTub stops producing?
    You can take the substrate and bury it in your garden! Makes great fertilizer and you might get a couple mushrooms that grow in your garden beds.
  • Why aren't the grain jars filled to the top of the jar?
    The jars are not filled to the top for two reasons: to make it easier to remove the grains at the end of the step 1 and to reduce the risk of contamination. When you're ready to move to step 2, you'll need to shake the grains loose from the jar because the mycelium will hold it together. With fewer grains, you'll be able to loosen them more easily. Additionally, the fewer grains you have, the less likely it is that you'll experience contamination. Your grain jars are balanced between having just the right amount to grow a ton of mushrooms and not so many that you needlessly expose yourself to contamination.
