One you receive your box, please follow the following steps:
Advice: if you do not wish to grow your mushroom box as soon as you receive it, place it in a cool place (2-8°C; in the fridge for example)
Ready to start ?
1/ Remove the bag from its carton box and remove the first white plastic. Immerse the bag in cold water (put a weight on it otherwise it will float) during 24h in the refrigerator. The next day, let it drain for a moment before placing it back in the box.
2/ Tear away the window along the perforated line. With a sharp and clean knife make an X-cut in the plastic exposed on the packaging. Do not remove this plastic as it helps to preserve moisture.
3/ Fill your spray with tap water or rainwater. Then make a few sprays in the center of the window on the bag of mushrooms (about fifteen times morning and evening). If the substrate seems dry : do not hesitate to spray more water!
4/ Once your mushrooms have reached maturity (after 10-15 days), gently grasp the bunch at its base and then turn slightly so that it comes off.
5/ You can grow your mushroom box again! Start again the process (see point 1/) and replace the bag in the box on the opposite side of the first cut. Harvest should take more time, around 20 days.
You can try a third harvest, nature can be full of surprises ;)
