All In One Mushroom Grow Bag Instructions
Step 1: Preparation and Inoculation
- Start by unpacking the mushroom kit and removing the protective wrap.
- Gently unfold the top flap to allow fresh air to flow through the 0.5 micron filter patch.
- Sterilize the kit and injection site with isopropyl alcohol to minimize the risk of contamination.
- Prepare your spore syringe or liquid culture solution for inoculating the bag with your favorite spores or mushroom strain.
- Through the self-healing injection port, simply inject around 2-4 ccs of mushroom spore or liquid culture solution into the kit. Avoid over-saturation.
- Do not mix the kit after inoculation. Instead, rotate it gently to distribute the solution evenly through the sterilized grain portion.
- Place the kit to incubate in a warm, dark location with an incubation temperature of approximately 65-75 degrees Fahrenheit.
Step 2: Colonization and Mixing
- After 3-5 days, you will notice the grain at the bottom of the mushroom grow kit overgrowing with white mycelium, indicating colonization.
- Allow the healthy mycelium growth to fully colonize the entire grain portion before proceeding.
- Once colonization is complete, mix the grain and compost in the kit to disperse the colonized grain spawn throughout the substrate.
- Patience is key during this stage. Wait for the entire kit, including the grain and coco coir, to fully colonize.
- It is recommended to fruit the kit when the mushroom substrate reaches 80% or higher colonization. However, waiting for 100% colonization is ideal.
Step 3: Mushroom Fruiting Stage
- The All In One Mushroom Grow Bag kit offers various options for fruiting. You can choose to fruit the kit inside the bag, in a terrarium, plastic tote, fruiting chamber, or monotub.
- If you decide to fruit in the bag, cut the bag open to provide fresh air once the substrate block is fully colonized.
- Mist the substrate with clean or distilled water if it appears to be drying out, and then fold the bag shut to retain moisture. Use clean tape or a paper clip to secure the fold.
- Lower the temperature to around 70-75 degrees Fahrenheit to induce fruiting.
- Open the fruiting bag once a day or every other day to ensure proper gas exchange and fresh air exchange (FAE) for optimal fruiting conditions.
- The three essential factors for successful fruiting are temperature, oxygen level, and humidity. Maintaining these at the right levels will encourage the substrate to fruit.
- On average, it takes about 2 weeks (10-16 days) for the kit to start fruiting.

Frequently Asked Questions
How to Make Mushroom Grow Bags?
To create your own mushroom grow bags, gather rye grain, coco coir (or other substrate material), spawn, and high-quality plastic bags with filter patches.
First, rinse and soak the rye grain overnight. Drain and load the grains into the bags, leaving space for expansion.
Next, sterilize the filled bags to remove contaminants. Once cooled, inoculate each bag with spawn, agar, spore syringe, or liquid culture.
Place the inoculated bags in a warm, dark environment with consistent temperature and humidity for colonization.
Transfer fully colonized bags to a fruiting chamber with indirect light and fresh air circulation. Maintain proper fruiting conditions.
When primordia form, seal the bag for a humid environment that promotes mushroom formation. Harvesting takes several weeks.
Note that times may vary based on factors like genetics and cultivation techniques.
When to start fruiting mushrooms?
The ideal time to start fruiting mushrooms is when the substrate is fully colonized with white mycelium threads. This usually happens after 2-4 weeks, depending on temperature and humidity. Waiting for complete colonization ensures a higher chance of successful fruiting. Once the substrate is fully colonized, you can proceed to the fruiting stage. Patience is key for a successful harvest.
How to fruit mushrooms in a bag?
The duration from inoculation to fruiting can vary depending on various factors such as strain, temperature, and humidity levels. Generally, it takes around 2-4 weeks for the mycelium to fully colonize the substrate inside the bag. Once fully colonized, it's important to give some additional time for consolidation before inducing fruiting.
This consolidation period typically lasts around 7-10 days.
To induce fruiting, you need to create optimal conditions for your mushrooms. Maintain a temperature range between 65-75°F (18-24°C) and a humidity level of around 90%. Proper air circulation is crucial at this stage, so make sure there's enough fresh air exchange without causing drafts.
The mushroom fruiting time varies based on different species but usually falls within a range of 5-14 days after initiating fruiting conditions. During this phase, closely monitor for any signs of contamination and promptly address them if they occur.
