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, the clever mushroom magicians at Merryhill Mushrooms have developed a kit which mimics the fresh logs Shiitake love to grow on by using fresh sawdust and straw to create a perfect growing environment.

This kit comes with the specially made block to grow your own Shiitake mushrooms on and a bag 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:

1.  Firstly, take your shiitake kit out of the box and remove the plastic from around the block.

2.   Place the block in the bag provided, leaving some space around it to allow a higher humidity. Fold the bag downwards so it is level with the top of the block. Stand block on large plate

3.  Place the kit in a cool spot to grow, ideally at 12-20 degrees and away from direct sunlight.

4.  You will then start to see the shiitake mushrooms developing. Spray the block inside the bag regularly to keep the humidity levels up.

5.  Once your crop has reached the harvesting stage, remove or cut away the bag. Harvest each mushroom by cutting them as close to the block as possible. Then keep spraying to keep the mushrooms happy.

6.  After the first crop has been harvested, there is a possibility for a second crop to develop. If you’re feeling extra confident, clean the block of any debris and immerse it under water for between 15-30 minutes. Place the block back in a loose bag and start the process again.

7.  You should see a second crop start to develop, but if not, don’t be disheartened. The majority of the crop comes in the first picking. For the best results, store your first crop of shiitake mushrooms in a paper bag in the fridge.

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