Experience

This point of these kits is just to experience the process of growing your own oyster mushrooms at home in the easiest way possible. The quantity of mushrooms this bucket will produce will vary depending on how much you look after it, with combination of regular water spraying and lots of fresh air. Given these mushrooms are endemic/native, it will grow perfectly with NZ weather conditions.

How can I get this started, please?

We got Ready to Grow oyster Mushroom kits. Only need to spray the outside with tap water 1 to 2 times a day and watch your mushrooms grow.

What do I need and where can I buy the ingredients?

We have a ‘Grow it from scratch’ package for everything you need to get started.

How long would these grow kits last?

Fruiting life: 8 to 12 weeks.

Do you have plans to do any other varieties of mushrooms?

We are only interested in growing NZ endemic/native mushroom variety, our next product will be: Lentinula Novae-Zelandiae (NZ Shiitake Mushroom).

Once you have a grow kit do you keep needing to buy starters?

These buckets may have second or even third flush every after 2 to 3 weeks from harvest, however. We cannot guarantee this due to different growth factors. Please be aware that each harvest after that usually becomes smaller; fruiting fewer and fewer mushrooms, until the bucket stops.
