Grow-your-own mushrooms?
 
Anyone ever used one of those grow-your-own mushrooms in a box kit things? Like this?

Basically the box comes with the spores and the growing soil, you open the box, put it in a window sill, mist it a couple days, and have fresh mushrooms in a week, with most getting at least four full harvests from one box.

I've been thinking about it, as finding anything other than white button or portobellos is damn near impossible here.

I grew my own weed in a college dorm closet once. I had to go to "responsibility training" for an afternoon with my roomate. No on the shrooms

Morels are nearly impossible to grow indoors, and difficult to even grow outdoors.

No, but I have made moonshine and I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express two weeks ago.

What's the pen for? Autographing them?

I'd guess size comparison.

So.... did you actually grow these from a box?

Yes size comparison. And I didn't grow them, I dont know what you're talking about you can't prove anything.

I heard they were grown in a box, but not a cardboard box...a clear plastic tote.

This is a timely thread, for me. I almost bought one of these kits a couple of days ago. I didn't, thinking I'd ask about it here.

They have them at Walmart.

Seriously if you want to grow a lot of shitakes, lion's mane, or whatever its really not hard. All you need is some mason jars, a pressure cooker, some wild bird seed, some vermiculite, some coco coir, and some patience...and of course spores. I dont know what those cardboard boxes cost but I doubt they'll yield much.
