Mushroom Grain Spawn Bag Instructions

  1. Start by unpacking the grain spawn and removing the protective wrap.
  2. Gently unfold the top flap to allow fresh air to flow through the 0.5 micron filter patch.
  3. Sterilize the grain spawn bag and injection site with isopropyl alcohol to minimize the risk of contamination.
  4. Prepare your spore syringe or liquid culture solution for inoculating the sterilized grain bags with your favorite spores or mushroom strain.
  5. Through the self-healing injection port, simply inject around 2-4 ccs of mushroom spore or liquid culture solution into the sterile grain bag. Avoid over-saturation.
  6. Do not mix the spawn after inoculation. Instead, rotate it gently to distribute the solution evenly through the sterilized grain spawn portion.
  7. Place the inoculated bag to incubate in a warm, dark location with an incubation temperature of approximately 65-75 (18-27°C) degrees Fahrenheit.
  1. Choose your preferred fruiting method: fruiting inside the bag or transferring to another fruiting container like a terrarium, plastic tote, fruiting chamber, or monotub.
  2. Mix the sterilized substrate and the colonized grain into your fruiting chamber, ensuring thorough and even distribution.
  3. Wait for 1-2 weeks in a dark environment until the bulk substrate block is 100% colonized.
  4. Provide the fruiting chamber with 8-12 hours of light per day and maintain a temperature range of 70-75°F and Relative Humidity of 85-90%.
  5. Give the fruiting chamber at least 3-4 fresh air exchanges (FAE) daily by removing the lid and using it to fan out the old air.
  6. Once the mushrooms or mushroom pins start to form, increase the humidity inside the mushroom fruiting chamber to around 95-100%, by misting the chamber and its contents more frequently.
  7. Monitor the progress and development of the mushrooms. After 7-14 days, your substrate block will be ready for harvest.
  8. Carefully harvest the mushrooms or mushroom pins by twisting or cutting them at the base, ensuring minimal disturbance to the remaining mycelium.
  1. We suggest using 1 lb of colonized grain spawn for every 5 lbs of sterile substrate, whether it be manure or hardwood. Additionally, for a 3 lb injection port bag, we advise using 2.5-5ccs.
