Everything you need to get growing—the mister, instructions and box—is included, plus a natural soil substrate composed of recycled plant materials, such as corncobs, wheat bran, and oak shavings. Each kit grows 2–4 crops. Made in Oakland, California.

Recycled Made in the USA
Made from
oak wood, wheat, corn, oyster mushroom spawn
Measurements
4.5" L x 3.5" W x 11" H; 3 lbs.
Notes
Please note: This box contains a living mushroom root, so don't be surprised by what's inside! Most kits, when opened, will contain a white substance; this is the healthy mycelium (mushroom roots) ready to grow as soon as it's slit open. Kits are inoculated with oyster mushroom spawn after being thoroughly sterilized.

Mushrooms grown in a high altitude or dry climate might require a little extra attention. Soak the bag for at least 24 hours, spritz at least to 3-4 times per day and give your mushrooms a home in your garage, basement, closet or cupboard to avoid exposure to increased dryness from heating and AC systems.

Please note: not for customers or recipients with mushroom allergies.
Could take up to as many as 30 days to sprout.
Oyster mushrooms - the kind contained in the kit -love fresh air.

    Comments about Mushroom Kit:

    The mushroom growing kit was a gift for my best friend who is an avid gardener and enjoys cooking. Once the packaged was delivered, I had a hard time parting with the growing kit, as I really wanted to try it myself! I can't wait for her crop to grow and get to taste some of these mushrooms.

    Comments about Mushroom Kit:

    This is a great product for someone who likes to grow their own herbs, or has a small vegetable garden and wants something a little unique to add to their harvest. Its a little gross - but it has to be, its a fungus. It also says "Great for Kids" on the box...but I think adults will find it to be just as cool.

    Comments about Mushroom Kit:

    I would recommend adding a line to the description that customers may wish to consider a different product for someone that may have an allergy to mushrooms. A friend sent this to me for the holidays, unfortunately, the spores breached the carton and began to grow in transit. Let's just say this was an unfortunate waste of money for my friend who was not aware of the poor quality package and my MUSHROOM ALLERGY. Thanks, thanks a LOT.

      We set the kit on top of the refrigerator figuring that would be the warmest place with little light. They have grown beautifully so far - and are delicious!!

      Service and delivery comments:

      Since it was Christmas, the delivery was very slow. I did contact Customer Service to find out when the product would arrive. I used the "chat now" feature and it was a wonderful experience. The person I "chatted" with was very helpful, told me everything I needed to know, and made up for the slow delivery.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  I ordered this as a gift to get to my house a few days before a gift exchange. For some reason, the shipping was delayed and the package wasn't scheduled to arrive until after the party. I emailed Uncommon Goods and said that I would be happy to buy another one (lots of people I know would love this), but asked them to pay for shipping to get it to me right away. They responded within a couple of hours saying that they would pay for shipping, not charge me for the item, and put it in a gift box. I got it in time and it was the hit of the party. I told everyone about the great customer service and recommended that they all bookmark Uncommon Goods and shop there often. I will!
