Fun, but not much success

This is a fun little project, and a good size if you're in an apartment. However, it was hard to get it to produce anything in the dry climate near Denver.

These mushrooms were so fun to grow with my kids. They loved checking it each day to see how big they were getting.

Could have used extra instructions.

I will be buying this item again as a science experiment for children, but it would have been more helpful if the directions were more detailed. The mushroom box needs to be stood up after opening and watering, not left laying down. We had a few mushrooms that grew, which over shadowed the others, and no room was left for any other mushrooms. The expectation is the picture of the kid from Vancouver, BC with the massive mushroom crop. Consumers need some more guidance to get that type of growth.

Love these little boxes as gifts! A little pricey for everyday use, but a novelty item. I buy them for myself just for fun sometimes. Mushrooms are high quality + great for cooking

Hit or miss

We've found these mushroom farms to either be explosive and abundant, or complete duds. We've had a few that didn't grow at all (ever), a few that were already popping mushrooms out of the cardboard before we even opened it, and a few that grew perfectly according to package instructions. A fun gift for kids!
