We have made sure that there are always fresh and tasty mushrooms in your kitchen. That’s why we present sets for growing mushrooms at home. From now on, you can pick mushrooms whenever you want. What’s more, you don’t need to look for them in the forest or in the store, because thanks to our sets you can grow them yourself.
Champignons cultivation set:
. first harvest: after about 20 days;
. growth temperature: + 12ºC – + 24ºC;
. workload: low;
. set capacity: 3L;
A special mini-greenhouse ensures sufficient humidity, which means that it can be grown practically anywhere: in the kitchen, garage, basement, etc.
The set includes:
- the substrate is infected with the mycelium of champignons mushrooms;
- mini greenhouse for cultivation;
- growing instructions.
If you care about what you and your family eat – this set is just for you.
Champignons mushrooms have useful properties:
- linoleic acid, which has a strong anti-cancer effect;
- anti-scarring lectin;
- vitamins B, C, D and K, niacin and biotin.
The kit includes a substrate with mycelium and a peat cover packed in a separate bag. Sprinkle the peat evenly over the entire surface of the compost with mycelium (don’t tap it, just spread it loosely). The thickness of the applied layer should be about 3 cm (the rest of the peat can be used during the next mushroom harvest). The peat cover should always be moist, so it should be well moistened, for example with a sprinkler for watering the plants. WHEN THE COVER IS WET, DO NOT WATER. Cover the prepared crop with a transparent bottom and leave it for about 8-10 days at a temperature of 20 ºC – 25 ºC. After this time, a white coating will appear on the surface of the cultivation – this is mycelium, which should be torn apart using, for example, small gardening rake or fork and evenly spread over the surface of the peat. At this point, the entire crop should be placed in a cool environment, where the temperature should be 14 ºC – 18 ºC. If the mycelium is kept in room that is too warm, the harvest may be smaller and fungal diseases may occur. To obtain optimally high yields, the substrate with mycelium should be ventilated. For this, it is enough to remove the transparent bottom several times a day and leave the box open for a short time. Note: The moisture content of the peat should be checked every day and, if necessary, carefully moistened. If the peat cover is too moist, the mushrooms may suffocate, if it is too dry, the small mushrooms will die in the top layer of peat. The first mushrooms will appear after about 20 days. They should be twisted carefully so as not to damage the remaining smaller mushrooms. After harvesting, the surface of the substrate should be thoroughly cleaned of the remains of fungal residues, as they immediately attract mycelium-eating pests. You can get about 3-5 harvests from the purchased substrate. Between each harvest there is a break of about 7-14 days. You should still remember to maintain the appropriate moisture of the top layer of peat. The total yield can be about 30-40% of the weight of the substrate.
Good luck and enjoy your meal.
