Mushroom Growing FAQ

Swiss Brown & White Button

The ideal temperature range for growing swiss brown mushrooms is between 16-23 degrees celsius.

Swiss brown mushroom blocks should be misted or watered 2-3 times per day. Or you can intensively water them for the first 3 days. Then no watering until you've harvested your first crop.

No, swiss brown mushrooms cannot be grown from seeds. They are grown from pre-colonized blocks (also known as inoculated blocks) that are specifically designed for growing mushrooms.

Swiss brown mushrooms should be harvested when the caps have fully opened, but before the gills turn dark. The mushrooms should be twisted and pulled out from the base, leaving as little of the stem behind as possible.

Yes, swiss brown mushrooms can be grown indoors in a well-ventilated room with indirect light.It's best to keep them out of the harsh outdoor weather. You need to be able to manipulate their growing environment.

Swiss brown mushroom blocks have a limited lifespan and will typically produce mushrooms for 2-5 crops before they need to be replaced.

Growing swiss brown mushrooms allows you to have a fresh and organic supply of mushrooms right in your own home. They are packed with nutrients and can be a great alternative to meat in many recipes. Plus, growing your own food is a rewarding and sustainable practice. They are a great fast way to teach children where their food comes from. Spray and chemical free also means they are better for you and taste so much nicer than store bought mushrooms.

Mushroom Growing FAQ

Oyster Mushrooms 

Oyster mushrooms grow best in temperatures between 20-28°c and a relative humidity of around 85%. They also require good air circulation to prevent the growth of mold.

It typically takes around 2-3 weeks for oyster mushroom spores to colonize the substrate and begin producing fruiting bodies, which can then take another 1-2 weeks to mature and become ready for harvest.

Generally you don't need to water your mushroom kits. It's best to mist the holes when it feels dry to the touch or the humidity level drops below the ideal range. This can help trigger the fruiting of mushrooms.

Oyster mushrooms don't require a lot of light to grow, but they do need some indirect light to stimulate growth. Natural light from a window or artificial light from a fluorescent bulb can be sufficient.

Oyster mushrooms are ready to harvest when the caps begin to flatten out and the edges start to turn up slightly. The best time to harvest is before the caps start to curl or the gills turn darker in color.

Fresh oyster mushrooms should be stored in a paper bag or a container with a lid in the refrigerator. They should be used within a few days to prevent spoilage. Drying or freezing oyster mushrooms can also help preserve them for longer periods of time.

You can typically expect to get 2-3 flushes of oyster mushrooms from your grow kit, with each flush producing a smaller amount of mushrooms. After the third flush, the substrate will be depleted and will need to be replaced or used for other purposes such as composting or mulching

Mushroom Growing FAQ

 Lions Mane Mushrooms

Lion's mane mushrooms prefer cool conditions with a temperature between 18-22 degrees. They also require high humidity (85-95%) and indirect light. They don't need sunlight to grow, but they need some light to guide their growth. (check out our low tech humidity tub video on youtube) https://www.Youtube.Com/watch?V=2zby5peehao

once the kit is fully colonised, white mycelium can be seen everywhere, cut open the bag. We recommend a large square u shape in one of the sides. Our aim is to expose the colonized substrate.

Using a spray bottle, mist the kit with water two to three times per day to maintain humidity. It's crucial not to let the kit dry out. However, be careful not to overspray and make the substrate soggy.

Over the next few weeks, you'll start to see tiny pinhead mushrooms appear. They will gradually grow bigger.

When the mushrooms are mature and the spines start to elongate and hang down, it's time to harvest. This is usually a few days after you first see the mushrooms. To harvest, gently twist and pull the mushroom off the substrate.

After the first harvest, you can sometimes get a second or even third flush of mushrooms. Simply continue to mist the kit and provide the appropriate conditions.

Once harvested, lion's mane mushrooms can be cooked and eaten. They have a taste and texture similar to lobster or crab when cooked.
