What is the over-view of the process? How easy is it really?

Growing is very easy! Setup your kit as an incubator for the first step, Inject your favorite spores into each jar, watch them quickly colonize, remove from the jars, adjust the heat to fruiting temperature and place each jar into the grow chamber and watch the mushrooms grow fast! Almost everything in the kit can be re-used so you can keep growing!! You'll typically have your first harvest in 4 weeks

What is the difference between growing in Jars and Spawn Bags?

Growing in jars has always been the easiest way to grow mushrooms. Recently, growing in spawn bags has become just as popular. We usually recommend starting your growing experience with jars because they colonize faster and produce mushrooms quicker. Spawn Bags take longer to colonize, but can produce larger flushes or growth cycles. Spawn bags can be grown with jars in any kit and are the preferred way for growing in bulk. This more advanced method of growing allows you to break up your fully colonized spawn bag and mix it with a variety of different soil type materials to expand your grow. If you are a first time grower and want to grow spawn bags we recommend a mix of jars and spawn bags. You can incubate your spawn bags right next to your jars and since jars will be ready first this will allow you time to practice while your spawn bags finish colonizing.

What is a Bulk Casing or Monotub?

Growing in Bulk is generally referred to as the process of using your fully colonized spawn bags or even jars to mix with a layer of mushroom friendly soil (Coir, vermiculite, Peat moss, etc..) Mushroom casing serves many purposes in bulk growing. It provides a medium to grow into, stimulates the formation of mushrooms, provides moisture and protects the substrate from drying out from the air. There are hundreds of different recipes for casing mixtures. We have tested many of them and only provide the best and easiest variety to make sure you are successful.

Monotub or Monotek is the process of using the fruiting container from any of the grow kits as your bulk growing container.

How long does it take to grow?

With most of our kits it takes approximately 3-4 weeks for the mushrooms to incubate or colonize the jar. You will typically see your first batch of mushrooms in the 4th or 5th week. They will continue to grow for an additional 4-5 weeks with one "flush" or batch per week on average.

Do you sell spores? Where can I get them?

No, each kit requires a spore syringe to use. Every jar requires around 1cc of spore solution each. Each Spawn Bag requires 4-5 cc's of spore solution.

There are hundreds of websites selling spores, some good, and some bad. After all the feedback we have received over the years from our customers we can recommend a few sites, just ask! One of our absolute favorite and top reviewed is www.ralphstersspores.com they have been in business for over 12 years, have the widest selection and quality of spores is the best we’ve seen!

We also recommend www.premiumspores.com they have high quality spore syringes, great customer service and an easy to use website and checkout process.
