In summary, if you’re looking for a mushroom growing kit in Australia or mushroom grow kits in Australia, Rootlab’s gourmet mushroom grow kit is an excellent choice.

It’s an educational and fun way to learn about mushrooms, perfect for families, schools, or anyone looking for a unique and engaging way to learn about fungi.

Other kits
  • Traditional mushroom kits offer limited options (4 or 5 varieties)
  • The bag arrives fully colonized with mushroom culture. It is a more straightforward option as it removes part of the process, such as inoculation and incubation. However, doing so omits vital learning steps for anyone who wants to be an accomplished mushroom grower. For example, it is like buying a grown plant at Bunnings, which requires only watering to bloom.

 

What are some of the steps required for this kit?
  •  Choose the species you want to grow according to your level of expertise and the location you are based in (follow the temperature range guide in the second photo)(Side fruiting varieties are more manageable than top fruiting ones).
  • Inoculate the bag following the right sanitation procedures(introduce fungi to the bag)
  • Incubate the bag for colonization (fungi to start spreading in the bag and start to digest the food source)
  • Once colonized, proceed with the fruiting instructions (growing actual mushrooms)
  • Harvest and prepare for the second flush
  • Use your spent block as mushroom compost or dispose
Keep in mind
  • This kit is intended for educational and entertainment purposes only. Expect a small harvest as it is just a 1 kg bag.
  • It may require patience. The entire process takes about 45 to 60 days, sometimes longer in winter.
  • Use the bag upon arrival. The traditional kits sold in the market can be kept in the fridge. Our bags can only be placed in the fridge once fully colonized.
  • You dispose of time and energy to read and learn about mushrooms. It is critical to pay close attention to the instruction and safety guidelines provided.
  • You know your current weather and can choose as per temperature guidelines and your experience level.
  • You can provide them with care and humidity.
  • Although spore allergies are rare, it is critical to keep your distance if you react to them.
