It has everything you need to grow your own gourmet mushrooms for salads and recipes, including a natural soil substrate composed of recycled organic material like corncobs, wheat bran, and oak shavings. The package even includes a tempting mushroom taco recipe, so you can enjoy your produce right away. Made in Oakland, California.

oak wood, wheat, corn, oyster mushroom spawn

Notes
Please note: These kits contain living mushroom roots, 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.

This mini-mushroom kit is fascinating to watch grow, and produces a yummy addition to any meal. I am currently on day 5 of growth, and it is very easy to get started with this process. I first checked the box on day 4 and the size of these little guys has doubled in a day. I have done this before, and it never ceases to amaze me how we get 100's of little mushrooms from this kit to table!

Two kits came in the mail and I gave one to my son to try. Fun, no downside!

I love this idea; Oyster mushrooms are delicious and versatile in cooking and I was excited to grow my own mushrooms inside in the Winter, when my garden is dormant. After following the soaking instructions, tiny mushrooms began to sprout in a few days and it was fun to find them doubled by the next morning. You MUST remember to water each day.. By the 7th day, some of the mushrooms started to dry up and I was forced to use them right away. The entire crop was just enough for a small serving, so I added them to a recipe. While I didn't get enough mushrooms to justify the cost of the product, this is still a delightful novelty for Winter fun. I am now waiting to see if the "bonus crop" will grow with a second soaking.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Mushroom Mini Farms - Set of 2:

    Thought I had reviewed previously, sorry if this is somehow a second review by me. This product is excellent, instructions were very clear, easy to follow..... product began to show signs of pinning from 5 or 6 days after being soaked..... quicker than I thought it would! Mushrooms are growing like crazy! Definitely a fun project, and when I reviewed i hashtagged #GrowOneGiveOne as they will send one to a school classroom of my choice! Can't wait for the kids to start growing their own shrooms! Very happy with this purchase, reasonable price too!

                  It was a great surprise for him, as we have all gone mushroom hunting through the years with him.
                  He has a great grandson, Teyen, 2 1/2 who is enjoying coming over and asking him how they are growing. Thanks.
