Ignite someone’s passion for fungi with a mushroom grow kit this Christmas. It’s a unique and unforgettable gift that’s truly rewarding. Our ready to grow kits are easy to use and suitable for the beginner. Within a few days of opening the grow kit the lucky recipient will be greeted by masses of healthy mushrooms  bursting forth and growing before their very eyes.

Express Christmas Postage

Our grow kits are all produced fresh to ensure maximum vigour. We recommend storing our kits in a cool, dark location prior to use.

Ideally the mushroom grow kit is opened once it has fully colonised. For this reason we’re offering Christmas Delivery to ensure our grow kits arrive, fresh ready for gifting on Christmas day.

Due to the potential delays over the Christmas period we’ll be using Australia Post Express Parcel Post service to ensure fast, efficient delivery between Monday 21st December & Thursday 24th December 2020.

What Grows Best During Summer?

The pink oyster mushroom is our number one recommendation for beginners. It thrives during the warmer months of the year and can tolerate fluctuations in temperature and humidity. These qualities make it the perfect kit for the beginner.

Other great summer options include both our yellow and white oyster mushrooms which are suitable for growing indoors or in a location sheltered.

For the more adventurous cultivator we are stocking paddy straw mushroom spawn which is commonly cultivated across south east Asia during the warmest and most humid months o the year.

Ready To Grow Kits

A mushroom grow kit is a block of supplemented sawdust that has been sterilised and inoculated with a live mycelium culture in lab conditions.

It’s really simple to use and perfect for the beginner looking to learn about mushroom growing and how to maintain excellent fruiting conditions.

Grain Spawn Starter

Grain spawn is a little known secret weapon of the world of mushroom cultivation. It’s made from sterilised grains that have been inoculated with a live mycelium culture.

Grain spawn contains a lot of energy for the mycelium to consume. It’s a bit like rocket fuel for mushrooms. Once it’s added to your substrate it takes off like wild fire. 

Mother Nature works her magic using spores but in a controlled environment you need to tip the scales in your favour by using clean high-quality grain spawn so you are doing your best to ensure success.

Free standard delivery is included with every order. All deliveries are lodged via Australia Post.

Express post is recommended for placing interstate orders during the summer months to avoid delay and ensure freshness.

Back order – Any items on back order will be dispatched separately. Items on back order are anticipated to be fulfilled within 21 days unless stated otherwise.

Using A Humidifier

Humidity can be managed through a diligent misting and fanning regime, however the introduction of a humidifier and humidity controller can help automate the process and ensure consistency.

Adding a 6L humidifier and controller to a greenhouse with the addition of a USB fan is a quick and easy way to make a low cost fruiting chamber that delivers excellent results.

Making A Fruiting Chamber

Mushrooms require humidity to grow. We recommend using a mini-greenhouse. Spraying the inside walls of the greenhouse will help raise humidity. A cheap humidifier can used to automate the process.

It’s important to ensure that the grow kit has fresh air exchange. Mushrooms produce carbon dioxide and will grow long and leggy if they require more oxygen. 

Check the product pages for species specific requirements.

Alternatively you can build a Shotgun Fruiting Chamber (SGFC) from a few common items found easily in your local hardware store.
