Frequently asked questions

A LOT!

The size:
Our kits are 10+ lbs. of substrate compared to a measly 2-3 lbs. In the store-bought kits. More substrate = more mushrooms.

The supplementation:
Other grow kit companies will often undersupplement their kits for shelf life purposes. This results in longer shelf life for the kit, but lower yields for the customer.
Our kits are supplemented to the max with bean hulls which makes for insane clusters--bigger than your head. This also means that they cant be sold in stores or stored for later use.

Variety/strains:
The varieties and strains that we offer are the result of rigorous lab testing and years of research and selection. The mycologists we work with are absurdly talented, hard-working, and picky about the strain quality. We're beyond honored to offer such amazing genetics.

Continued use:
As mentioned, these kits carry much much more mushroom potential than other kits on the market. Once you've harvested a couple of times from your kit, you can move it outside and bury it, compost it, or mix it with more substrate to continue your grow. These harvests are less reliable but some of our customers report harvesting for up to 8 months after they thought their kit was finished!

Using a Nearby Naturals mushroom kit is as easy as mushroom growing can be. All of the sterile work, incubation, and heavy lifting has been done for you.

Simply cut a hole, mist regularly (using the provided misting bottle) and harvest them when they're ready.

It takes approximately 10 days to harvest. Sometimes as quick as 5 days, rarely longer than 2 weeks.

If you're leaving your mushroom babies for longer than a day or two, just harvest any mushrooms that are currently growing and pop the kit(s) In the refrigerator until you're back, they wont miss you at all!

You can also cancel your subscription at any time If you'll be unable to care for them for an extended period. You can restart it when you return!

Over our history of both wholesale mushroom farming and providing mushroom grow kits, these 3 varieties have proven themselves to be the tastiest, easiest to grow, and most varied trio.

We only carry these 3 for that reason. Other varieties are possible but not ideal in our experience.

Varieties such as morel, porcini, and lobster mushrooms cannot be cultivated reliably.

Your first kit will ship 10-15 days after you sign up. then you will receive them around the same time each month moving forward.

The mushrooms have a growth cycle of roughly one month for 2-3 harvests, so this system works out beautifully.

The shipping charge is $8-$13 per package.

It is a 10-12 lb package of live substrate that must move quickly.
(The shipping cost is actually $17-$20, but we cover some of it for you!)

No!

We don't offer any magic or inedible varieties. All 3 of these varieties are edible and delicious.

Each shipment contains:

10+ lbs. of live mushroom mycelium growing through a substrate of wood, bean hulls, grains, and water:
Before you receive it, the substrate is sterilized before the mycelium is introduced to create a perfect incubation environment within the bag. The bag itself is a special type of mushroom bag that allows for air exchange and sterility.

Misting bottle:

The misting bottle allows you to keep the humidity up around your kit and keep the mushrooms from drying out as they grow.

Rubber bands:
The rubber bands help hold the bag down so the mushrooms have an easier time finding their way out.

Instructions:
Our detailed photo instructions will help you make the most out of your kits!
