FAQs About R&R Cultivation’s Mushroom Kits
What's the fruiting time for each of these species?
Generally, it will take about two to three weeks for your mushrooms to grow. This depends on the species:
Oyster Varieties – Two weeks to harvest, with subsequent fruitings every two weeks
Lion's Mane – Three weeks to harvest, with subsequent fruitings every three weeks
Shiitake – Two weeks to harvest. For subsequent fruitings, the block must be completely dried out before soaking in water for 24 hours. You can expect another harvest after two weeks.
How many mushrooms will the kit yield?
This will depend on the species you choose. In most cases, you should be able to get three to four pounds of mushrooms per kit.
Can I harvest more than once?
Yes, you can! You'll get subsequent fruitings after your initial harvest, but the quantity of mushrooms you harvest will likely diminish each time.
Are the mushroom kits easy to maintain?
Absolutely! The process of growing mushrooms at home couldn’t be easier when you use one of R&R Cultivation’s At-Home Mushroom Grow Kit. In fact, it’s a completely hands-off process; just sit back and watch your mushrooms grow!
