    With the Mushroom Ecosphere, you can grow various mediums simultaneously, including jars, spawn bags, bulk casing trays, or fruiting blocks. By using vertical space, this setup offers over 17 cubic feet of interior space while occupying a small amount of floor space. The Ecosphere includes four customizable tiers of growing room, allowing for multiple projects in one comprehensive package. Get ready to take your growing to the next level with the Mushroom Ecosphere Essential 3.0!

    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 years developing & improving this system. 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.

    What's new in Version 3.0?
    Now included on ALL models of the Ecosphere our new custom designed Grower's Select Monsoon Humidifier. This new model produces a finer water vapor and produces over 360 ml of humidity per hour. It also has a larger 3L tank and a long lasting ceramic atomizer.
    - All new lighting. Our fullt customizable new COB LED Lighting system allows you to put the light where you need it. Over 16 feet of light at the optimal spectrum to trigger mushroom development and healthy fruiting bodies.
    - New custom drip liner. The new HDPE drip liner is over 8mm thick and has 3" barrier walls to keep moisture in. No cutting required!
    - New upgraded fan with sealed brushless motor to provide long lasting functionality in high humidity environments.
    - Better Air Exchange. With the new humidifier and high flow filter disks, the humidity stays in but air is free to move in and out.

    The Ecosphere is 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.

    I was amazed on how quick I received my order. It was packaged to where everything had survived the shipping in clean condition as well.
    The instructions on assembly were better than other companies I have dealt with.

    Ecosphere 3 Starter Kit

    • easy
    It is great that everything comes together. First time ever growing mushrooms and thought about building my own monotub, then decided to try a tent system to grow more than one kind. Purchased the Eco kit and followed all directions exactly as stated. Delivery was super quick and this kit contained everything I needed to get setup and growing (except spores, of course).
    I just finished my first flush and had zero issues in the process. For me, it took exactly 5 weeks from inoculation to harvest and I could not be more satisfied with the results. Wow, was this ever the best decision. I so recommend this kit to anyone entering this fascinating adventure into Mycology.
    Well done Midwestgrowkits and thank you!!

    Materials were packaged well, everything works as desired. Growing my first batches now and seems to be going as its supposed to! Very excited to get to my first harvest. Only thing I would like, and will order, is a humidity controller. Hard to keep at desired % without one. Thank you!!

    This setup is great. It keeps consistent temp and humidity, and the lighting setup is great.
