In The Box

  • [1] x Aussie Mushroom Ready to Grow Mushroom Kit - Shiitake | Easy to Fruit

Shiitake mushroom kits are one of the fastest to fruit. We incubate them for a minimum of 8-12 weeks so they are ready to burst out with mushrooms as soon as they arrive.To start you will need:

  • A large bucket or a 30-50L plastic container to fruit them in.
  • A waterproof table for the mushroom kit to sit on.
  • (Eg: A brick or a plastic lunch container)

Step 1

  • Open your Ready-to-grow mushroom kit box and check the label on the bag inside to determine Ready-to-Grow Mushroom kit species..

Step 2

  • Are you ready to use the Ready to grow Mushroom kit?
    • If the answer is no, place the kit in a cold fridge (1-5 degrees). Mushrooms can be kept in fridge for up to 8 weeks.

If the answer is yes move on to Step 3.

Step 3

  • Take your kit out of the box, place it on the bench and allow air to inflate the bag. (NOTE: Air is removed during transport to fit in the box).

Step 4

  • Fill the bag with cold tap water until the block is under water.

Step 5 - Soak

  • Place the bag in the fridge for 5-10 hours to cold shock the block.
    (Don't soak for too long or the block can get water logged).
  • Wait! I see mushrooms coming through. Do I still soak?
    • Yes, still soak. But move quickly as the block is getting ready to fruit.

Step 6 - Set up fruiting container and start growing.

  • Set up your fruiting container by placing your 'waterproof table' in the bucket/container.

Step 7

  • Add about 0.5cm of water to the bottom of the bucket/container (this will help keep it humid).

Step 8

  • Drain the water from the mushroom kit bag in the sink or garden.

Step 9

  • Remove the mushroom block from the plastic bag and sit it on your waterproof table out of the water. Place the containers lid down allowing air gaps. Please Note: If you are using a plastic container, 1/4 turn the lid, (leaving 4 air gaps in each corner), OR, if using a bucket place cling wrap over 80% of the top of the bucket to allow fresh air and light to get in.

Step 10

  • Mist the walls of your container with water 1-3 times per day as needed to keep it humid. Mist the block with water 1-2 times per day until the pins start to form. NOTE: Stop spraying the block directly when mushrooms start growing.

Step 11

  • Harvest all of the mushrooms at once, then, rest your block somewhere dry for approximately 6 weeks. During this time it will fully dry out.

Step 12

  • Head back up to Step 1 and begin again, your next flush.
