Cut the Bag: Cut a 6-inch 'X' on the bag to allow the mushrooms room to grow.
Fold the Bag: Tuck the top of the bag down to stop any air pockets, which helps more mushrooms grow.
Set the Right Conditions: Find a spot that's not too cold or hot (60-75
° F), not too dry, some air movement, and has a little bit of light. Places such as kitchen, warm garage or closet near window are some examples.
Step 2: CARE
Hydrate: Use a spray bottle to keep the place where you cut the bag and the soil inside it damp, doing this 2-3 times generously, daily.
Checking on Mushrooms: In 1 to 2 weeks, you should see tiny mushrooms starting to grow. If they look dry, give them extra sprays of water.
Step 3: PICK & REPEAT
Picking Mushrooms: When the little mushrooms get big (usually in about a week), you can take the whole cluster off and clean off the block dust before eating. Any uneaten mushrooms can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
Repeat: You can expect to get 2-3 'harvests' from each block, each one getting smaller as the mushrooms run out of nutrients.
Reuse the Mushroom Soil: After your block has dried out, you can remove the plastic covering, and toss the mushroom soil into your compost pile or garden beds. Your plants will thank you!
