Mushroom kits have been around for many years. There is a kind of magic that happens when, from white mycelium appears perfectly formed mushrooms. Fast forward to 2017 and kits are available for many different exotic mushrooms including oyster, king oyster and shiitake. Different varieties require different growing temperatures. This is ideal as it allows you to enjoy your own home grown mushrooms nearly all year round. Kits come conveniently packaged in a box and will not take up very much space at all. Transferring the kit to a clear plastic storage tub ensures you can control the humidity readily by opening the lid a little or a lot. Mushrooms require regular misting with rain or filtered water and a well-lit position. Avoid bright sunlight or a dark position. One mushroom kit should yield (depending upon the variety) at least one kilogram of mushrooms.
