Such a good mini project for little ones and their guardians... and you see the return fairly quickly. So worth the purchase!

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!

Fun kit

We bought one of these at a local health food store and had a blast. The mushrooms grow quickly, takes about 9 or 10 days from start to harvest. My kiddo got such a kick out of watching them grow. Every morning they are so much bigger than the day before!! I was so happy to find these kits at a waaaay better price here at Thrive Market, so I bought another kit to give to a family member. Highly recommended!

Kit is fun and it’s neat to harvest and eat fresh mushrooms. Came with a packet of tomato seeds to plant, too.

It was fun to watch them grow but I only got one batch of mushrooms from it,even after turning it over like suggested. So I bought a second one to try again. Still just one growth so this is the end for me!

the first side worked wonderfully, enjoyed watching the mushrooms grow and then eat them. The other side did not produce one mushroom, sadly.

Had a good batch of oysters from the kit and then threw the mycelium in my yard to spring up again.

So sad that I was not able to grow any mushrooms. I was looking forward to seeing them grow, but, it just didn’t work for me.

I was disappointed /W/ this product. I followed the instructions carefully, but didn't turn out so well. A few mushrooms grew & then the plant died
