Frequently Asked Questions
I purchased a Sporeganics mushroom growing kit from Earth Bacon.com. Now what?
To begin fruiting, remove brown paper bag sleeve
Slice an X on the plastic bag, exposing mushroom block to oxygen
Submerge exposed area of the block under pure, clean water, preferably distilled, for 24 hours
Remove from water
Place block in area of home out of direct sunlight, not in the dark, with plenty of flowing fresh air
Mist block throughout the day on exposed area with pure, clean water, distilled water preferred; more water if your growing area is dry
Wait patiently and mist daily for about 7 to 10 days until "Pins" form. The mycelium will form pins and these are baby mushrooms! Within days, these will grow to full-sized mushrooms requiring more moisture as they grow
When fully grown, harvest them by removing the mushroom from the block
A typical mushroom fruiting cycle is complete within 7 days after initial pins
- After harvesting and enjoying your freshly-grown mushrooms, repeat steps above in another location on the block for another harvest. One block can "flush" up to 3 or more times.
PRO GROWING TIP: On 2nd harvest, submerge block in water with about 1% - 3% hydrogen peroxide added to water by volume to kill any bacteria that may have formed during growing process
Please research more about mushrooms and mushroom growing to help facilitate the most successful yield from your kit.
