Mushroom Kits

NOTE: If mushrooms grow out of your kit that DO NOT resemble the picture below(Stropharia rugoso-annulata) Please be cautious. We use non sterile growing conditions which means we do not use a large Lab like environment. We grow in Nature where foreign spores from all over the world are present. Sometimes other mushrooms do grow- do not be worried if you wait the Stropharia mushrooms should come through and fruit for you. If you have any concerns or questions please feel free to contact us at

If you have bought a Mushroom Kit from us you might be still unsure of what exactly to do with it. Here are a couple of choices....

1>> Put it on your coffee table with a drip plate under it and watch it come to life, giving it frequent a misting on the surface with water.


2>> Dig a hole in the sunniest place in your garden the size of your pot and plant the entire pot in the ground. I often put a plant next to it and just to remember to water it every so often. When I bury the pot I only bury half the depth of the pot so as the sun will keep the spawn warm. This is a reason why we use black pots--warmth..the mycelium of the Garden Giant loves the warmth.

The first option will fruit much sooner because of being in doors whereas the later will take longer because it is still cold outside.

Happy growing
If These mushrooms below grow out of your kits they are called an Agrocype. They have not been scientifically tested for constituents although we have been eating them for a couple of weeks and are absolutely delicious. I cannot recommend you eat them although ..... the choice is yours. They have the exact same action as the stropharia in the plant to soil to especially worm relationship.
Enjoy
