These kits will grow 2-4 pounds of mushrooms and can be grown just about anywhere (no direct sun light). After the bags have been fully colonized (white mycelium covering the straw) they will be ready to pin. Keep the bags out of direct sun (inside or in a "grow container" is best) and mist around the openings of the bag daily. The pins will grow (tiny mushrooms) and become fruit bodies. Continue to mist (multiple times a day is great) but be sure not to allow droplets to form on the mushrooms. You want a gentle glistening off the surface of the mushrooms.
Once you are ready to harvest your mushrooms pull the entire mushroom cluster off the bag. Once removed, you should see straw in the site where the mushrooms were removed. Your mushroom kit will fruit multiple times from the same site. Each time producing fewer mushrooms. You can get up to five flushes (number of times mushrooms will grow from the bag). Once the bag has been spent, you can remove the myceliated straw from the bag, break it up, and compost it (worms love it)!
The kits typically take about 2 weeks to fully colonize. From there you will have mushrooms in another 2 weeks. This is all dependent on the environment, but in about a month from your "born date" you will be enjoying your mushrooms
