INSTRUCTIONS

Please use kits within 1 week of receiving – the kits are made fresh and will dry out if left too long.

Intended for cultivation of legal mushroom species only.

There are five key stages to growing mushrooms:

  1. Inoculate
  2. Colonise
  3. Rehydrate
  4. Fruit
  5. Harvest

Please read through each stage carefully and make sure you understand fully before proceeding.

1.Inoculate

 

Inoculate your substrate by injecting approximately 3ml – 6ml from your syringe into your Grow Tub

Preparation

Making lid holes if you purchased substrate tub WITHOUT injection ports

 

Injecting culture/ spores

 

2.Colonise

This is where the mycelium will grow, covering your cake with a white, cotton-like appearance. Your cake is fully colonised when covered completely in mycelium.

 

Storage

Time

 

3.Rehydrate

The cake will have dried out substantially during the colonisation period, so requires rehydration prior to fruiting.

 

 

4.Fruit

This is where your mushrooms start to grow.

5.Harvest

 

Maturing mushrooms with the veil breaking, exposing the gills on the under side of the cap, are ready to be picked.

 

 

Good luck and happy mushrooming!
