We’ve heard about the Back To The Roots Organic Mushroom Grow Kit and I think we’ve seen it at Whole Foods and now, we’ve spotted it at Costco as well.
This company was started by 2 UC Berkeley students who grew a test bucket of oyster mushroom in their fraternity kitchen. They’ve turned their idea into a business and now we can easily grow our own mushroom out of a box as well.
There’s only 3 easy steps to grow your own oyster mushrooms:
1) tear open the perforated back panel on the box and score a “+” into the bag
2) remove bag from box, soak in a bucket of water for 8 hours with the scraped side face down, then place the bag back into the box
3) set the box in a place with indirect sunlight. Avoid direct sun! Spray water on scraped area twice a day until mushrooms are fully grown.
You can grow multiple crops with this one box. Supposedly the record is 10 crops!
This is a great project for everyone – family, classroom, etc.
The Back To The Roots Organic Mushroom Farm Kit is available in a 2-pack and priced at $29.99.
Unit price is $14.995/box.
