Update on the Indoor Mushroom Garden: One Week Later

Posted on Feb 1 2011 - 3:32am by Mike Lieberman

It’s been a week since I’ve started my indoor mushroom garden. Per the instructions, I’ve been misting the bag two times a day.

I was starting to get a bit skeptical, but after the eighth day I started to see some growth bursting out the front of the bag. At this point it almost looks like a piece of cauliflower.

On the side of the box, it says that you can harvest your first mushroom as early as 10 days, so I’m not too far off.

This seems like a good way to not only grown some of your own food, but also a good option for those that have limited space. Mine are sitting on my kitchen table in the indirect sunlight.

    Thanks for all the great info. I just took advantage of the 20% off coupon, so I hope to have my own mushrooms soon!

    Nice bro. Glad you could take advantage of it. That bulb has actually been growing pretty quickly. Looks alien like. Should be able to harvest them in the next week or so.

    does it say to position the box like that? seems like the open area should be face up.

    It doesn’t say to keep the box upright, but that’s how all the pics are.
