If you want to grow your kit outside of any container or grow tub please click here (Updated Instruction!) to get the instruction, otherwise please following steps:
1. Kit Contents:
- Your Lion's Mane Home Grow Kit includes a pre-inoculated substrate packed in a plastic bag.
- Please note that you must provide your growing container for the kit.
- Carefully remove the contents from the box, ensuring not to damage the plastic bag containing the substrate.
3. Cutting and Spraying:
- Locate the marked lines on the plastic bag of the substrate.
- Cut along the marked lines using clean scissors or a knife to create an opening for the mushrooms to grow.
- After cutting, lightly spray the inside of the bag and the surface of the substrate with clean water. Ensure it is evenly moist but not saturated.
4. Selecting a Growing Container:
- Choose a suitable growing container based on the size and number of mushrooms you expect to grow.
- Some recommended options include:
- Plastic or glass containers with a lid or cover, such as a transparent storage box or a terrarium.
- Plant pots with drainage holes and a tray to catch excess water.
- Mushroom grow bags designed for mushroom cultivation.
5. Preparing the Growing Container:
- Clean and sterilise the growing container to minimise the risk of contamination.
- Ensure the container is large enough to accommodate the entire substrate bag and provide space for mushroom growth.
- If using a plastic or glass container, create small holes or slots in the lid or cover for airflow. To avoid fruit fly damage in your kit, you could fill the holes with some filters, like cotton fibres.
- Place the unopened plastic bag of the substrate into the prepared growing container.
- Close the container's lid or cover, or use plastic wrap to seal it, to create a humid environment.
- Position the container in a well-ventilated area away from direct sunlight and drafts.
- Small mushroom pinheads will appear inside the bag after a few days.
- Monitor the humidity level inside the bag and mist it with water to maintain proper moisture.
- If condensation accumulates on the inside of the bag, open it slightly to allow for fresh air exchange.
- Once the mushrooms have fully developed and reached an appropriate size, carefully twist or cut them from the substrate at the base.
- Harvest the mushrooms when they are firm and before releasing spores.
- To harvest, gently open the bag and access the mushrooms without removing the substrate from the pack.
9. Regrowth (Optional):
- After harvesting, continue misting the inside of the bag and maintaining proper environmental conditions.
- The kit may produce additional flushes of mushrooms, allowing for multiple harvests.
Proper humidity, air circulation, and cleanliness are crucial for successful mushroom cultivation. Enjoy the process and savour the rewards of growing your Lion's Mane mushrooms!
