    The Mushroom Ecosphere has been our flagship product for 6 years now and we keep improving it every year! Like us, many people enjoy growing many different mediums at the same time. Whether it’s jars, spawn bags or bulk casing trays this is the turn-key solution to growing in mass quantities. By utilizing vertical space, the Mushroom Ecosphere has over 17 cubic feet of interior space while only taking up a small amount of floor space. The Ecosphere gives you 4 customizable tiers of growing room allowing for multiple growing projects all in one all-inclusive setup!

    Growing mushrooms requires specific climate conditions. To achieve the highest level of success you must have the ability to regulate the growing temperature and humidity levels. The traditional methods of heating and humidifying simply do not work with a kit of this size and type of material. Our research and development team spent over 9 months building and testing countless prototypes. The final production climate control system is a custom built unit that uses convection and infrared heat technologies to evenly heat and humidify the entire area while eliminating hot spots and temperature and humidity variations.

    The Ecosphere is now completely self-automated and extremely easy to use! Simply place the climate control system on the bottom rack. Plug it in to the new temperature controller and set the desired temperature on the thermostat! Set it and forget it!

    Each heating system is built and tested by a licensed electrician. The Ecosphere also includes a separate fogger system with air pump that pipes in fresh humidified air for fruiting your mushrooms. The humidifier can be set on a timer to maintain perfect humidity levels around the clock!

    I have purchased 2 smaller going kits and was happy with the outcome. However, I couldn't have imagined what we were getting with
    The Essentials Substrate Ecosphere Package 2.0. It is, beyond words awesome!!! In addition the staff support and direction was/is phenomenal. Five stars isn't enough. We have decided to grow a larger "garden" and the Ecosphere Package 2.0 checked all the boxes. I would like to meet the engineer that built the heating system for the garden -- very cool use of materials.

    Easy set up, works perfectly

    • Quality is good.
    • Could use a few more photos from angles
    Even for a total novice with no tools, the set up was straightforward. I did my first inoculation a few days ago. So far, so good! I’ll let you know how the rest of the process goes.

    Nice Kit

    • The supplies and ready to go jars.
    • Lack detailed info on cultivating steps.
    I received everything and it was well packaged. I have since put up the tent and the heating element and the fan. I have inoculated 3 of the ready to go jars using the oven method that was suggested. All the parts work and the supplies are generous. I am getting a lot of blowback from other mushroom growers about using a kit like this. I am satisfied as of now.


    Happy with the quality

    Have not set-up yet but quality looks great and instructions are straight-forward from a brief overview.

    Obvious that packaging is done carefully and economically.

    I buy all my grow stuff from Midwest and have no plans to go elsewhere.

    The ultimate deal, Fast shipping, great packaging

A super great deal and easy set up, the fact they send you more info for growing mushrooms is a plus for sure. Fool proof Purchase.
