The grow kit contains instructions on the outside of the box and the inside is a bag of substrate from which your mushrooms will grow. The substrate bag is filled with supplemented sawdust that has been sterilised and fully colonised with mushroom mycelium. This mycelium is essentially the growing body from which mushrooms grow and will look like a soft, white, fuzzy layer covering the block. You can leave the substrate bag inside the box.
Depending on the variety you chose, your mushroom grow kit will grow:
- Phoenix/Grey oyster mushrooms (Pleurotus pulmonarius); or
- Pink oyster mushrooms (Pleurotus djamor); or
- Velvet oyster mushrooms (Pleurotus parsonsiae), a native New Zealand variety
