Perfect for even the smallest spaces, our mushroom growing kits aren't just simple and beginner-friendly -- your first flush is 100% guaranteed!
Choose from four delicious grow kit options: lion's mane, blue oyster, golden oyster, and pink oyster.
Our mushroom kits are reliable producers and tend to yield large flushes of beautiful bright yellow to deep golden mushrooms when given adequate humidity. With continued proper care, you should be able to get multiple flushes. (We 100% guarantee your first flush of mushrooms, but hope you'll try for 2 or 3!)
GOLDEN OYSTER MUSHROOMS:
Golden oyster mushrooms are aromatic, delicate, and delicious. They also have a hint of nuttiness (similar to cashews) and are beloved by chefs for their texture and flavor. The perfect panko-fried fare, they also pair perfectly with pasta, risotto, noodle stir frys, and more. (We especially love adding them to warm creamy soups, frittatas, tacos, and even quiche!)
BLUE OYSTER MUSHROOMS:
Blue oyster mushrooms are velvety, savory, and mild and pair perfectly with just about any recipe! Blue oysters are a staple here at North Spore (going all the way back to when we began as an urban farm.) After perfecting our blue oyster kits over the years, they’ve become one of the easiest kits to get multiple fruitings from and should produce a second flush of mushrooms (or more!).
PINK OYSTER MUSHROOMS:
Pink oyster mushrooms aren’t just strikingly beautiful. They are also succulent and savory, and are perfect sautéed or added to pastas, pizzas, and more. As a tropical oyster mushroom strain, they thrive with higher humidity and their color intensifies if given adequate indirect sunlight. Given their denser texture, pink oysters make a wonderful meat substitute. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can find recipes that use them in everything from burritos to bbq sandwiches. They even make amazing vegan bacon, too!
LION'S MANE MUSHROOMS:
Lion's mane mushroom kits are the easiest of all our Spray & Grow Kits and produce plump, dense, shaggy mushroom clusters. Lion’s mane is highly versatile and can be enjoyed cooked, dried, extracted, or even steeped as a tea! And because it contains brain-supporting compounds, it’s also a popular medicinal mushroom in addition to a delicious fungi fan favorite. (Meatless crab cakes, anyone?).
Note: Lion's mane can be prone to drying out if the ambient humidity is too low, so we recommend that you water it generously.
That's not mold, it's mycelium!
Your kit includes an amended sawdust block fully colonized with mushroom mycelium. It may appear covered with a soft, white, mold-like substance - that's the mushroom mycelium! It is completely normal. The mycelium of some species is more prominent than others.
