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.

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.
I obviously don't know firsthand... but my understanding is you should expect multiple harvests from each side (three to four). So that would be 12-16 harvests, the boxes run $20ish, so maybe $1.50/harvest. But I have no idea about how large a single harvest can be.

Evidently the kind of mushrooms my roommate in college grew were a lot harder than that, heh.

I can get you 'shrooms any time you want. Also, the check is in the mail.

Keep in mind every harvest will get smaller and smaller. And its rare to get more than two before contamination begins to spread, the mycelium gets weaker with every flush as its ability to fight off mold diminishes. I guess its worth a shot but I'd start off just buying one to see how it goes.

A friend of mine grows mushrooms. Though, they are magic, not morel.

He says its easy. He uses the clear plastic tote, and once he got them going, they are perpetual as long as he takes care of them.

Yeah, I'd heard that about the size of the harvests. If I do it, I'll only buy one. I think the Earth Fare here has them, never seen them at Walmart.

That shit was fun at 18, not sure I could handle it at 34. Tempting though

pretty sure there isn't enough moisture within 100 miles of me to grow mushrooms.

FMB, here's a thread on mushroom growing that you might want to read. It's got some talk and pics regarding kit growing, tote growing and plug growing:

I did.


Wife and kids thought the science guy would like it.
It was ok. good at times, but did not yield nearly as much as the pic shows.
Fun to try, but not something that would be worthwhile as a long term solution.

I have good friend who grows mushrooms in his back yard. He drills holes in oak timbers and then he packs spores in the holes and builds this cross timber type of boxes with them. When the temps and moisture is right they grow like crazy.

Even if there was the wind would blow the spores to Missouri.
