The mushrooms sprouted very quickly and my whole family enjoyed watching them grow.They grew very quickly and only required watering twice a day. I am someone who kills most plants and I had no trouble at all growing these. It is a foolproof process and the finished product was delicious.
13) My wife and I do not have much of a green thumb, using this mushroom log was very very simple to use and we did not even kill it.I stopped counting how many times I heard someone say “gross….”then as they grew and we ate them we all have a new appreciation for mushrooms.

For those of us who would like more mushrooms, simply collect a spore sample from a few caps and inoculate a medium; the price tag you pay for this kit is what I have paid for liquid spore syringes in the past, with these kits at least you can make your own liquid spore syringes and get something to eat for the same price.
