DIY Mushroom Kit FAQ

We want to not only provide the best fruiting blocks you can get, we also want to provide the best support you can get. To that end, we encourage you to send us questions via the contact page if you're not sure about something involving your grow-at-home mushroom kit, or if you think there's something we could do a better job explaining. 

Here we'll try to keep an updated list of the answers to the most common questions or concerns that we get. It's likely that whatever you're not sure of has been the subject of someone else's uncertainty as well, so scroll on through and you may find an easy answer!

  1. What if I don't have Lysol or alcohol to use for inoculation? Quick answer: just wash your hands. There is a very low chance of contamination.
  2. I don't understand how to tape over the fruiting slit in a way that holds it open.
  3. I'm having trouble keeping my developing mushrooms from getting too dry.
  4. How do I know if my mushrooms are ready to pick?
  5. What are some good, simple recipes for my mushrooms?
