Watch Shiitake Mushrooms Grow
Now you have the opportunity not only to enjoy watching these exotic mushrooms grow but also to enjoy eating the freshest mushrooms possible. Each kit may produce over a pound of mushrooms in 2 to 4 crops (mushroom flushes). Mushrooms need plenty of fresh air to develop normally. High carbon dioxide levels from mushroom metabolism will accumulate in sealed growing environments and can reduce cap size and elongate stems severely.
Shiitake Mushrooms are not only delectable, but they are also good for you. Shiitake Mushrooms contain all the necessary amino acids that are needed in our diet and Shiitake is higher in amino acids than peanuts, soybeans, corn and kidney beans. Mushrooms are also an important source of vegetable proteins, iron, fiber, minerals and vitamins.
