1. Open the back cardboard panel and cut a “+” into the plastic bag.
2. Scrape away some of the top white layer (here’s a video that shows how much to scrape)
3. Soak plastic bag submerged in water for ~8 hours
4. Return mushroom bag to box and mist or sprinkle with water at least 2x per day
○ Mushrooms love fresh air, so placing your kit next to an open window can really encourage the mushrooms to grow.
○ Oyster mushrooms like light. Place your mushroom kit in a bright area-- filtered light is best.
○ Moisture is extremely important. You can tell if your kit is getting enough water because you will be able to see visible drops of moisture trapped beneath the plastic flaps. The more water the better; don't be afraid of over-watering your mushroom kit. It's impossible!

Typically, a kit that is not growing simply needs more moisture. Try scoring the surface with a knife or fork and then re-soak the bag for 1 day. Afterwards, you’ll want to give your kit lots of water. You can’t overwater these mushroom kits so the more water the better! Feel free to email a photo of your kit to our Community Happyness team for additional tips and support. Email Contact@backtotheroots.com.
