The Benefits of a Grow Your Own Mushrooms Kit from Us

A grow your own mushrooms kit gives you the first-hand experience of fruiting delicious mushrooms from a block of substrate inoculated with high-quality mycelium

Mushroom growing continues to gain a lot of popularity around the world, especially as people add different types of edible mushrooms to their diets.

Are you interested in growing your own gourmet mushrooms indoors? One of the best ways to do it is with a grow your own mushrooms kit from Fungi Ally. These kits are designed for the complete beginner, even though they are of professional grade. I say they are of professional grade because these grow kits are the same ones that have been used to produce fresh mushrooms for commercial business. At the height of production we were fruiting thousands of pounds of fresh mushrooms each month with the use of high-quality grow kits.

The benefits of these grow your own mushrooms kit options

The professional quality of our mushroom grow kits is the first major benefits.

Another major benefit is that we provide a variety of strains to try. This allows you to experiment with growing different strains at a smaller scale before increasing production. It also allows you to experiment with cooking or drying different mushrooms before committing to a larger mushroom garden or farm.

Here is a look at the mushroom kit options we currently have:

  • Blue Oyster Mushroom
  • Golden Oyster Mushroom
  • King Trumpet Mushroom
  • Lion’s Mane Mushroom
  • Reishi Mushroom
  • Pioppino Mushroom
  • Black Oyster Mushroom
  • Shiitake Mushroom
  • Chestnut Mushroom

Each of these mushroom growing kits are 10 pounds of colonized substrate and certified organic. They come ready to fruit so you can have your first flush of fresh mushrooms within two weeks of starting the kit. These are some of the biggest kits on the market and they make great sense to buy for the price. Many of the smaller mushroom grow kits on the market produce a lower amount of fresh mushrooms but are similarly priced with shipping. Since our kits are typically twice the size of the others, you get more mushrooms for a comparable price. Plus, even though our kits are each 10 pounds, we are able to only charge for 6.5 pounds in shipping fees. You can be saving money growing your own fresh, organic mushrooms at home opposed to buying them at the store. Plus, you get the joy of watching your food grow right in front of your eyes! You will truly be growing and eating as local as you can get. 

How our grow your own mushrooms kit works

First, buy the kit from our online store. Your kit will arrive in the mail and be ready to use immediately. If you do not want to begin using your kit as soon as it arrives, then you must keep it under 45 degrees Fahrenheit until you are ready to start.

To begin, cut holes in the plastic that contains the block of substrate and mycelium. Each kit has slightly different instructions for the shapes of the holes because of the mushrooms that grow from them. You can watch a video on using our lion’s mane grow kit, as well as videos for our shiitake mushroom grow kit and oyster mushroom kit.

Once you have prepared your kit by cutting holes into the plastic so the mushrooms can grow out of it, be sure to mist the kit two or three times each day. The kit will need to stay moist in order for the mushrooms to grow. In about 7 days you will start seeing the growth of your mushrooms. Each kit will yield about 2-4 pounds of fresh mushrooms while it is together. Once the block is spent you can put it outside in the compost or in your garden, and you will continue to get some partial flushes of fresh mushrooms.

Grow your own mushrooms kits and commercial cultivation

As mentioned above, these kits have been used in small-scale commercial mushroom cultivation. They are a great option for mushroom farmers who want to grow the mushrooms, harvest and sell them, but don't necessarily want to do all the substrate preparation, inoculation, or incubation processes. It also benefits mushroom farmers who want to do all the steps but don't have the space or equipment to do so easily.

If you fall somewhere into that description, you could buy some ready to fruit blocks from us. We provide wholesale rates on 20 or more kits of the same species. The more you buy, the cheaper it gets. Here is the breakdown on our wholesale rates:
