The required temperature range for your kit is 50-75F°. You can harvest fresh mushrooms about once per month.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
To clarify one point: This is my first mushroom-growing experience, and perhaps I should have started with something more commonplace, but I really like Lion's Mane mushrooms, so that's what I went with.
The kit arrived with a thick layer of mycelium—which I figured out on my own, because the included instructions are a bit too simple and don't mention it at all—directly under a thick fold of plastic enclosing the inoculated sawdust block. I carefully unfolded the plastic, and re-wrapped the fold over to the side so that I could make X cuts directly over the mycelium. With that done, the block spritzed with water (spray bottle included) and the humidity tent (also included) in place, I waited.
After a few days, with regular spritzing, I had cauliflower-like growth, but still UNDER the block's wrapper. I contacted the company directly via email to ask for clarification regarding the instructions and my expectations, but never heard back...
Product did not meet my expectations. No planting instructions in package. Misting sprayer that was Included was inoperative. Mushrooms never germinated.
After having it for one month I've seen nothing happen. Not sure how long it will take
