Best Practices for Success

At our urban farm, we've honed our methods to perfection, and we recommend following a few best practices to ensure your mushroom cultivation thrives. Clean hands and latex or nitrile gloves are always a good idea to minimize the introduction of contaminants.

Preparing for Success

After you receive your IT'S Mushrooms kit, carefully remove the sterilized substrate bag, check to see that inside is intact. Sometimes they're squeezed in transit and break apart - no worries! Gently press the bag together and allow it a few extra days to recover before you start the cultivation process.

IT’S Mycelium 

That fuzzy, white substance growing inside your bag is not mold—it's mycelium! Mycelium is the vegetative form of a mushroom, and its appearance can vary depending on the species you're cultivating. It's a sign that your mushroom cultivation adventure is well underway. 

Humidity Control

For those residing in dry or arid climates, maintaining proper humidity levels is crucial. Consider covering your bag with a humidity tent. Mist the bag daily to create an ideal microclimate. Once you spot baby mushrooms forming (a stage known as pinning), you can remove the bag and continue misting the substrate.

Essential Growing Tips

Hydration 

Keep your substrate adequately moist with regular spraying. Add a humidity tent if needed, especially in drier conditions.

Air Flow

Ensure that your mushrooms receive enough oxygen by providing proper ventilation through the humidity tent or by placing the bag in an area with fresh air.
