Materials Needed:

    • Alcohol wipes (included with the bag)
    • Syringe with liquid culture or spores (purchased separately)
    • (For monotub method) Tub, lid, perlite, distilled water, and aluminum foil


Step-by-Step Guide to Growing Your Own Mushrooms:

    1. Sterilize your workstation, hands, and injection port with the alcohol wipes provided.
    2. Inoculate the bag with 3cc (3ml) of liquid culture or spore syringe, injecting directly onto the grain spawn.
    3. Carefully remove the needle and put cap back over the syringe.
    4. Store the bag in a clean, semi-dark room with a temperature of 70-75°F, off the ground and without direct sunlight. Wait 10-14 days until the mushroom grain spawn is fully colonized.
    5. Once the grain is colonized, mix it well with the bulk substrate and allow it to colonize for an additional 10-14 days. The block is fully colonized when it's a solid mass and all white with mycelium.
    6. Sterilize your workstation and open the mushroom grow bag to give the mushroom substrate some fresh air. Cut 1-inch slits below the top two corners of the grow bag and gently pull the bag up and down to allow air in. Mist the substrate with clean or distilled water if necessary. Fold the bag shut to hold in moisture.
    7. Drop the temperature to induce fruiting, usually around 70-75°F.
    8. Store the mushroom bag in a clean, well-lit room with a temperature of 70-75°F for 7-14 days.
    9. Open the bag once a day or every other day to give the substrate fresh air.
    10. Harvest your mushrooms once they're fully grown.


Fruiting in a Monotub:

    1. Once the substrate block is fully colonized and all white with mycelium, sterilize your workstation and remove the colonized substrate block from the bag. Place it on aluminum foil in a tub filled with perlite hydrated with distilled water.
    2. Provide the monotub fruiting chamber with 8-12 hours of light per day and a temperature of 70-75°F.
    3. Give the fruiting chamber at least 3-4 fresh air exchanges daily by removing the lid and using it to fan out the old air.
    4. Once the mushrooms or mushroom pins start to form, you can increase the humidity by misting the mushroom fruiting chamber and its contents more frequently.
    5. After 7-14 days, your substrate block will be ready to harvest.


Tips and Tricks for a Higher Yield:

    1. High humidity, combined with a steady rate of evaporation from the mushroom bulk substrate caused by increased air exchange (opening the bag), is crucial for pins to form.
    2. Make sure to provide the substrate with adequate misting & light during the fruiting process.
    3. Control the factors of temperature, oxygen level, humidity, and light at the right time to initiate fruiting, usually taking 7-14 days.
    4. Once the mushroom grow kit starts to fruit, open the bag to make more room for the mushrooms to grow and increase air exchange.
    5. A temperature 70-75°F is also necessary to initiate fruiting.
    6. Remember that different mushroom strains may have different growth patterns, so it's important to understand the unique needs of your mushroom species.
