About the Kit
Morel Habitat Kit® was developed so everyone could grow morel mushrooms in their backyard and have a personal supply of fresh morel mushrooms to eat each spring. The Morel Mushroom Kit® can supply an individual with pounds of morel mushrooms in an earth friendly garden area as small as 4 – 5 sq. ft. or as large as 16 sq. ft. Furthermore, Morel Habitats are perennial and can be started any time your soil is workable – Spring, Summer, Fall and even Winter (in areas with a mild climate). In Addition, Morel Habitats may be started in any type of soil and have produced morel mushrooms in all areas of the United States that have a definite transition from winter to spring.
We provide about 22 ounces of morel spawn (seed), which contains our unique morel strains and will allow you to seed a back yard Morel Habitat that may produce pounds of morels over the years in a properly maintained four foot by four-foot area. The Morel Habitat Kit® contains living morel fungus in a block of morel mushroom spawn (body). Typically, only a few pounds of morel mushrooms are found the first spring your Morel Habitat produces. After that the next year typically provides the best crops, and crop sizes tend to vary in subsequent years. Time from establishing the Morel Habitat until fruiting varies from 6 months to 2 years.
Customers have found morels in their Habitats 26 years after they were established! The Morel Habitat is earth friendly, sustainable and ecologically sound. Furthermore, it actually allows improvement of the environment through recycling biodegradable material instead of adding it to already overburdened land and sea sites. You may already have all the materials necessary to create a Morel Habitat and cultivate morels in your own back yard. In conclusion, everybody with a yard has most of the materials needed to create and maintain the Morel Habitat. Complete instructions for preparing and maintaining your Morel Habitat are included. Hold Morel spawn in the refrigerator for up to six months.

“In addition to what you need to grow other genera, they sell a morel “habitat kit”, and I actually know someone who had good success with it.”

“Just thought I’d post that we had our very first morel pop in our mushroom garden that I planted last spring using the Morel Habitat Kit from GMHP. This was planted in a tiny section of our back yard in the heart of the City of St. Louis. I followed the instructions contained in the kit to a “T” …” The Great Morel Forum

We guarantee that, environment permitting; your morel spawn is capable of producing Morel mushrooms in a properly managed Morel Habitat with proper environmental conditions. The total number of mushrooms you can expect to get in each habitat may vary from year to year and will depend on the care of your Habitat and environmental conditions. We test each batch of spawn. If we find that any batch of spawn is unable to produce morel mushrooms, we will send you new spawn free. Brand GMHP Morel
