Product Description

Now this one really is a winner. The exotic and very tasty Shiitake Mushroom but in an easy to grow, easy success home-growing kit - pretty much a first here in the UK!

Shiitake have notoriously been difficult to grow at home, especially indoors and although there are plenty of kits to grow outdoors on logs, this process can take 2 years for the fruiting spores to mature. But now,  clever mushroom specialists have developed a kit which mimics the fresh logs Shiitake love to grow on by using fresh sawdust  to create a perfect growing environment.

This kit comes with the specially made block to grow your own Shiitake mushrooms on and a pack to place the block inside. For more information check our 'What is Supplied' tab. Once received, simply follow the clear instructions and pick fresh Shiitakle in as little as 3 weeks. How do we do that? Well, the spawn is pre-treated, and already growing away, so the hard work is done.

Note - due to the nature of this product it is not always available for immediate delivery, in which case a pre-sell date will appear.

What Is Supplied

Item 700009 supplied as:
The cultivation of Shiitake. The set consists of a plastic bag with a substrate of sawdust. If you see any white-brown bumpy growths, these indicate early mushroom fruition. These bumps will later become the shiitake mushrooms. CULTIVATION: Remove the plastic bag from the substrate Put the set in daylight for some weeks. A window sill facing north is ideal for this. Wait until + 50% of the surface has turned brown. Put the carton lid on top after you have indented the corners, opened the air holes at the short ends, and removed the inner circle in the top of the lid. You will not be needing the white lid any-more. Immerse the substrate in a bucket filled with cold tap water (24 hours). Lay a heavy object on top of the set to keep it under water. Please note, if mushrooms are already growing on the cultivation set, you may skip the immersion step. Spray the cultivation set at least once a day with a plant spray to prevent it from drying out. HARVESTING: The harvest period is around one week, and the fully-grown mushrooms have a cap diameter of 4-8cm. After a harvest, let the set rest for at least 15 days. During this rest period, take the set from the window sill and keep it in a place which is neither too dry, nor too hot (a cellar is ideal). After this period, repeat the cycle, start-ing at point 2. The second harvesting period arrives after 5-10 days. During a period of maximum 6 months, you may have 5 to 8 harvests. Good luck and bon appetit.

Didn't like them at all, arrived mouldy, and didn't like the look of them at all. So chucked them away.
