We have grown many mushroom kits with fabulous success, so even with the poor reviews, we bought this kit. Having followed the instructions exactly (soak 24 hours, mist twice or more daily) we got a great burst of little mushrooms. They grew, we misted. We misted and they dried up!
So, unwilling to throw $17.00 away, we read everything we could find on the web on Oyster Mushrooms. Then we cut 1/4 off the block and seeded a couple pounds of fresh, damp coffee grounds with the "seed".
We soaked the remainder for 48 hours This time we re-sealed the block in our vacuum sealer, cut an opening and covered the block with a clear plastic bag --placing it in exactly the same place in our kitchen. Mushrooms happened again! And again, even with the plastic bag serving as an incubator, they dried up.
Meanwhile, the mycellium in the fresh coffee grounds have taken off!
So, unwilling to give up, we resoaked the "Brick" and put in under a plastic cube. Mushrooms are forming again -- this time we think they will make it!
After much thought, it seems clear that some "bricks" of used coffee grounds are too compressed and dry to take on adequate moisture. We love the concept of re-use and think the developers of this product are on to something. The bricks are innoculated with ample spores, however the substrate at least in some cases is too compressed to have mushrooms survive -- even in a humid environment. If you try this kit, soak it for a long time and put it in a plastic cube or bell jar from the outset. Good luck!

I purchased this as a gift for my wife for Christmas, we followed the instructions EXACTLY and after 10 days, we just got a lot of white mold - no mushrooms.

We contacted customer service (twice) since they state on the site that they guarantee their product. After 2 days, no response.

UPDATE: 1/15/12

Last Tuesday January 11, the company finally contacted me and said they were committed to customer service, would replace it if it was dead and could I please send pictures. So I sent pictures, and they told me it was still viable but just a "late bloomer" and to send pictures again on Tuesday, 1/17. If the kit still didn't show any mushrooms, then they'd send me a new kit.

Wouldn't you know it, yesterday morning the kit started showing significant signs of mushrooms after about 14 days, and today they're much bigger (and more of them).

So, at this point, I would say it's a ok kit, but I just think they need to revise their marketing materials and change the "mushrooms in as little as 10 days" part. I was VERY close to throwing it away - twice.

Bottom line, be patient. If you get this kit and you don't have any luck, email the company with pictures of your kit(feedback@backtotheroots.com). They probably won't get back to you the next day, but hopefully they will within a few days.

This was so much fun!

The kit is small but contains all that you'll need to grow your mushrooms, including a little spray "mist" bottle, which is great because it would have been annoying to find one of those on my own. There are a few steps to follow, and then you just mist your mushrooms a few times a day and wait and... MUSHROOMS EVERYWHERE!

I just got done harvesting my first batch of mushrooms and have even eaten some! They were yummy, but really, the point of growing the mushrooms is to watch them grow, and, even better, watch how excited my children were each day. This is a good instant gratification project because the mushrooms went from nothing to GIANT in days. I am also not great at watering plants, but the misting was not a chore at all.

You open up one side of your box, cut an X in the plastic and open up to the soil and mushroom spores and scrape off the white covering. Then you let the block soak in water overnight. (This was a bit confusing because at first the directions made me think that you actually remove the entire block from the plastic, but you just remove it from the box. I may have ripped the plastic a bit thinking I had to tear it off but it ended up making no difference in our results.) After you let it soak, you set the mushrooms somewhere by light and wait. (We put it on our fireplace mantle which is by the window but not in direct sunlight.) Days 1-3 were pretty uneventful, but on day 4 we noticed growth, and it seriously took off after that. I ended up taking pictures of the mushrooms every morning and afternoon and I was SHOCKED at how big the mushrooms grew in just hours! We diligently misted them and watched. The instructions told us that it took about 10 days, but our mushrooms were ready by day 8.

This little box is amazing! I soaked for 12 hours and within two days I saw my first sprouts. On day four it is now a huge mass of mushrooms. You just mist the mushrooms twice daily and you can watch these develop almost hourly. I can't wait to start cooking with these mushrooms.

"Back to the Roots" advertises that they will donate a kit to the school of your choice if you share a photo of your mushroom growth. Now that's a community-oriented company. Also, the mushroom kit is a perfect project for school kids.

Last year I tried the Oakville Outlet Store Shiitake Mushroom Grow Log and had huge problems with mold and growth. This mushroom kit is far superior to the mushroom log. It works, it's fun and mushrooms are good to eat. I highly recommend the "Back to the Roots" mushroom kit.
