Frequently Asked Questions

Mushroom grow kits typically go through a cycle of growth called a flush, which can produce between two and three harvests. To encourage more fruitings, some growers suggest moving the grow kit outdoors or creating a change in environment or temperature. Although kits are best kept at room temperature, they can continue to grow even if the temperature fluctuates slightly. However, it's essential to ensure that the mushroom growing kit gets enough fresh air. To extend the lifespan of the grow kit, some growers bury the substrate block and compost bag, which helps protect it from the elements, and the fungi can absorb moisture from the soil.
