This kit is well worth the money! I've harvested tons of really great tasting mushrooms, and they just look so cool... I've recommended it to many friends who've asked about it. Easy to use, fun, and so inexpensive for what you get. Just as good as more expensive kits I've used before. Thanks!

I've purchased a similar mushroom log in the past. This one is much larger, producing a bounty of mushrooms very quickly. One recommendation: After the first step of submerging the log in water for about 10 hours, you may want to put it in the basement for a few days. There is a ripe, musty odor in the first few days. The mushrooms grew much faster than the instructions predicted. No odors after the first few days. For me, it was a good way to "garden" during a cold New England winter.

I've had a ton of fun with this mushroom log. I was intimidated by the negative reviews on Amazon, but these mushrooms honestly have been growing really for me. I've never gardened before, and I've had potted bamboo plants die on me, so I'm amazed that this patch is doing really well. Two weeks after receiving the package, I have eight 4-5 inch sprouts all over the log, and some more smaller ones.

This really surprises me, because due to my work schedule I'm not able to water the mushrooms "several times a day," as the detailed instruction booklet advises. I usually end up watering them only at night. And yet, here I am with fantastic results!

My one complaint is that I wish the instruction booklet had more pictures of different stages in the growing process. The booklet has a picture of the "beginning stage" of growing, and a picture of the fully matured shrooms, but I think it should have some better pictures of how the log should look before you dunk it in cold water, before you remove it from cold temperatures, etc.

Either way, this has been really fun! I'm looking into growing more shrooms later, and I'll probably upload a picture when I'm ready to pick them.

EDIT: Also, a comment about fridges. If you have a dorm size fridge, you might not be able to grow this item. You have to refrigerate the log for a couple of days. I could do this EASILY in my regular, kitchen-size fridge, but I don't think I would have had room to do this in a dorm-size fridge that was also holding sandwiches, drinks, etc.

This mushroom kit was, what I thought, a unique gift idea for my son and his girlfriend. After reading mixed reviews, some warning of mold, smells, and no mushroom production, I worried. Confident that my son would enjoy the process however, I sent it anyway (the price was right). Yesterday I recieved, from them, a picture of what I thought looked like a birthday cake COVERED in shitake mushrooms. He laughed at how they will grow two inches overnight! They are now busy looking up recipies so as to enjoy their mushrooms. I am thrilled that this inexpensive,just for fun, Christmas gift was such a hit! I don't know what my son did right, or what other people may have done wrong, but I couldn't be happier with this purchase!

I had a problem with lack of mushroom production when using this kit. I e-mailed the vendor several times, asking for advice. I have not gotten any help.
VERY POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE!!

This is a great kit. It is so interesting to watch the little buds appear and then grow into full-blown mushrooms.. They grow amazingly fast also. There was more than once I had a tiny little mushroom in the morning and a huge ready to eat mushroom when I got home in the evening.. Very easy to grow.. We got three harvests from our kit.

I have some experience with mushrooms so I understood some of the other complaints. Like there is an expatriation date on living things. No duh! When you order an organism don't leave it in the box for a month before opening it.

Anyway, I loved this product. Open it immediately upon receiving it, Follow the instructions exactly. EXACTLY! Because little things matter, like water quality and temperature and humidity. But once you understand what you are dealing with and follow instructions you will get lots of delicious mushrooms. I am currently soaking mine after having harvested a pound of mushrooms on the first flush.

Mushrooms might be easier to grow than most plants in a garden but they still require a little effort and attention. But if you do it right you will enjoy several flushes of delicious mushrooms.

I will be ordering more, they are great.

Followed the directions but only got 1 mushroom to sprout. to the company's credit, it was indeed a really fantastic mushroom, certainly the best i have ever eaten, with texture and nuance of flavour that really beat any other. how i wish i could have more of them! Alas, i only got one. On the second flush i was plagued with mold. It seems to be very difficult to get the humidity just right -- too dry and no mushrooms, too wet and you get mold, and there isn't much room between those two states -- if there is any room at all.
