Do Mushroom Kits Keep Growing?

If you are a fan of mushrooms, you might have considered growing them at home. And if you are not ready to set up a full-fledged mushroom farm, a mushroom kit might be just the thing for you. Mushroom kits are simple and easy to use, making them a great way to get started with home cultivation. But the question that often comes up is, do mushroom kits keep growing? And if so, how can you get more than one harvest out of them?

The answer is yes, mushroom kits can keep growing, depending on the type of kit you have. At Myterra Labs, our Easy Mushroom Grow Kits are designed to provide 2-3 harvests of delicious mushrooms. Each kit comes with enough moisture to get multiple harvests, and you can soak the kit in water overnight if it starts to look dry.

To get the most out of your mushroom kit, follow these tips:

  1. Follow the instructions carefully: Every mushroom kit comes with specific instructions, and it's essential to follow them closely. From the temperature to the amount of water, every detail matters, and following the instructions will help you get the best possible results.

  2. Harvest the mushrooms correctly: When the mushrooms are ready, you will need to harvest them correctly. To do this, gently twist the mushroom stem until it separates from the kit. Be careful not to pull the mushroom out forcefully, as this can damage the kit and reduce future yields.

  3. Wait for the next flush: After harvesting the first crop, you will need to wait for the next flush of mushrooms to grow. This can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks, depending on the kit and the growing conditions.

  4. Soak the kit if it looks dry: If you notice that your kit is starting to dry out, you can soak it in water overnight to rehydrate it. Make sure the water is at room temperature and not too hot or too cold.

  5. Know when to stop: While some kits can provide multiple harvests of mushrooms, there comes a time when the kit will stop producing. Typically, after 2-3 harvests, the kit will be exhausted, and it's time to move on to a new one.

  6. Dispose of the kit correctly: After three harvests, you can dispose of the kit by adding it to your compost heap or burying it in your garden. This will allow the kit to decompose naturally and provide nutrients to your plants. Some species are even able to regrow in your garden as long as the area is kept moist and is not in direct sun. Try breaking up your kit and burying it in a shaded area. Add some wood mulch on top of the broken apart kit to have better success and top with a layer of soil. 

In conclusion, mushroom kits can keep growing, and with a bit of care and attention, you can get multiple harvests of delicious mushrooms. With Myterra Labs Easy Mushroom Grow Kits, you can get 2-3 harvests, and if you follow the instructions carefully, you can enjoy fresh, homegrown mushrooms in no time.
