This is an easy to grow Wellington oyster mushroom kit. It is approximately five pounds, and is ready to fruit. Just follow the instructions and you'll have mushrooms growing within a week. We're very proud of our product which we make from locally sourced golden wheat straw which we shred, fortify with minerals and pasteurized. This gives some of the highest yields on straw which we find to be the most eco-friendly and sustainable substrate for mushrooms. The mushroom spawn used to grow our kit is 100% USDA Organic.
90 day warranty. 100% refund if not satisfied.

I've tried mushrooms kits several times and it's always cheaper to buy mushrooms in the store. The pleasure of growing them, eh, I could watch tv instead. I got almost a pound of mushrooms from this bag of Oyster Mushroom spawn, and one stem of one mushroom actually had some flavor. The rest, well, I could have eaten a piece of sponge and used it again later. I've read that if you let the caps grow, that's too long, you need to eat these as button mushrooms. Maybe that was the problem, but the dried oyster mushrooms you get in stores are fully capped (and, tasteless). OK, harvesting as buttons would have reduced the yield to a half pound or less, and no, that's not worth the money or effort. The wild ones are way better no matter what the age. But I did cut up the remaining spawn, used it to seed bags of damp shredded junk mail, and it's still hanging in the basement. I've checked, the spawn is still healthy, so maybe I will have junk mail mushrooms next spring. Or maybe not. I will...
Didn't come with humidity tent. First I made one out of metal coat hangers and plastic wrap. It worked, and one bunch of oyster mushrooms grew. Then I replaced the tent with an upside down clear tote with holes. It produced two more times over 7 weeks or so, again one bunch each time. I'm sure I neglected it quite a bit. If you follow directions perfectly, you will probably fair better. But, it DID grow. And they were pretty good. All and all, it was pretty cool.
The only 5lb kit I've seen on amazon, fully colonized straw ready to start right out of the box. I anticipate a good harvest as it is pretty vigorous. It also shipped very quickly.
