A ready-to-go mini mushroom farm with free urban shipping anywhere in New Zealand (rural delivery fee $4.50). These large sized kits (4.5kg commercial size production block) consist of a mix of organic substrates (sawdust, straw and seed hulls) which has been colonised with a native NZ strain of phoenix oyster mushroom (Pleurotus pulmonarius) and they're a great way to grow a good few crops of mushrooms at home with ease.


Being a native species well adapted to local conditions, these kits can be grown at any time of year without supplementary heating. Growth will be slower in cooler conditions, but the quality and flavour of cold-grown mushrooms is excellent. 


The first step when you recieve your grow kit is to take it out of its box and cut some slits in the bag where it is marked out for you. Kits need to be taken out of their box and 'activated' within two weeks of recieving them (store in their box and in a cool place until ready to use)

From there, all you need is a spot to put them and to give them a bit of moisture now and then, by spraying the humidity veil (included) with water every day or two. The mushroom kit will grow in a wide variety of environments, indoors or outdoors. Common spots to place it include a laundry room, garden shed, or simply under the shade of a bush / tree in your back yard. Or the ideal environment can be created using a MycoLogic Mini Mushroom Grow Tent


You can expect a crop within a couple of weeks of recieving the bag (maybe slower in winter when it's cold), and a couple more crops spaced a couple of weeks apart after the harvest of the first crop. These bags generally yield over 1kg of mushrooms in total ($80+ retail value)


For an extra $18 you can optionally add a copy of our Mushroom Growing Book (RRP $29.90) which is a great resource on all things mushroom growing, specifically for New Zealand.
