Mine was oval shaped and about 10"x5"x5". Mine grew dozens of mushrooms within weeks and they were delicious! Make sure you harvest before the bottoms get brown. The only downside is that for best results you need to spray it at least 3X a day, more would probably be best, so be sure to keep it someplace accessible and get a spray bottle (check a dollar store for a cheap one). I kept mine on a plate in the basement because my girlfriend thought it looked like "a big turd". Okay, it wasn't the prettiest set piece, but it was really fun to watch and grew very quickly.
Make sure to soak it for 24 hours in a CLEAN bucket. A new bucket is suggested, but I am cheap so I put a garbage bag in the bucket, added the water, then sunk the kit with a brick inside another garbage bag. If you do this make sure there are no rips.
Also, if you keep it on a plate like I did, be sure to dump the water that collect on the bottom about once a day to prevent mold.
It is a bit of a hassle to constantly keep it moist, but it was really cool to watch and the results were outstanding (and delicious!)
The flavor is distinctly unique and each mushroom was consumed happily. I let some stay and mature to release spores, and in within the confines of the mushroom bag it looked like smoke. Mycellium even began trying to grow on the floor.
Instructions may be pretty strict, but following them results in the best rate of harvest and growth. It even troubleshoots many common things that may happen, and has a hotline just in case someone really needed help. This kit is definitely usable for children and adults.
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.
The project is sure to stimulate the curious to learn about a new kingdom that is neither animal or vegetable.
We followed the instructions as indicated and in just 10 days we had a bounty of fresh shiitake mushrooms, ready to be picked! The mushrooms were flavorful and had a sweet earthy smell. While we didn't exactly weigh the harvest, it gave us enough about 4 servings worth of pasta/noodles. The patch is now drying for the next round.
I would definitely recommend this product!
Although, 3 of the 4 mushrooms were very, very big and all 4 were super delicious, like no mushroom I've ever purchased. You haven't had a fresh mushroom until you have a freshly picked one like these. They were pristine.
