Chose from one of our 3 great substrates! Either 

aPlusAlpacaRabbit, Coir-Vermiculite-Azomite, or Nutrientless (Coir-Vermiculite)  

Then select either 2 or 3 pound fruiting bags and the quantity desired.

We use Azomite instead of Gypsum


Azomite contains over 67 trace minerals and is OMRI listed for organic use. This is an ultra-fine water flowable (-200 mesh) powder and is excellent for coating seeds or irrigation for maximum germination and initial growth. Azomite is a good amendment for crops, compost and potting soil and is used to increase size and yield of fruit.

Preparing Your Supplies

  1. Store Supplies in Advance: If you're buying/making supplies, store them for 10-14 days before using to ensure they're clean.
  2. Maintain a Sterile Workspace: After the storage period, treat prepping your bags like a surgical procedure - you can't be too clean. Use 70% alcohol to thoroughly disinfect your work area, and wear gloves and a mask.

Mixing Spawn and Substrate

  1. Measure the Spawn: For 2-pound bags, use roughly 1 pound or 1 quart of fully colonized grain spawn. For 3-pound fruiting bags, use 1.5 pounds of colonized grain.
  2. Combine Carefully: When combining the spawn and substrate, be sure not to allow the two bags to touch each other. This helps prevent any potential cross-contamination.
  3. Seal and Wait: Once the spawn is added to the substrate bag, rubber band the top shut. Then simply wait 10-14 days for the contents to fully colonize. No misting is necessary during this time.
  4. The once the bag has started to solidify, Add a rubber band around the base of the substrate, on the outside of the bag. This will keep the substrate held to the side of the ba and prevent side pins.
  5. to Induce Fruiting (Optional), Increase Air Exchange: If desired, you can further induce fruiting conditions once the bag is 100% colonized. Cut a slit below the filter patch and cover it with micropore tape. This allows for more air exchange and puts the bag into the fruiting stage.
  6. Regulate Moisture: This optional step can also help if too much moisture has built up in the bag, as the increased air flow can help regulate humidity levels.
  7. By following these steps, you can ensure a clean, controlled, and successful mushroom growing process.

Harvesting and Preparing for the Next Flush

  1. Harvest at the Right Time: Once your gourmet mushrooms have fully grown, open the bag and harvest them using the twist-and-pull technique. The ideal time is when the veil underneath the cap has just started to break.
  2. Maintain Optimal Humidity: After harvesting, heavily mist the substrate to help maintain the ideal moisture levels for the next flush of mushrooms.
  3. Prepare for the Second Flush: With the mushrooms harvested, the substrate is now ready for the next round of growth. Monitor the humidity levels and continue misting as needed to support the upcoming flush.
  4. By following these steps, you can efficiently harvest your gourmet mushrooms while also setting the stage for a bountiful second flush. This will help maximize your overall mushroom yield and ensure a successful growing cycle.
