"Grow Your Own" Mushrooms!

At the right time of year, growing your own mushrooms in South Florida can be a huge success!

We offer a simple, yet purpose driven growth chamber to accomplish the complex task of maintaining optimal growth conditions for these mushrooms.

Our ready-to-fruit substrate blocks are 10lbs and consist entirely of organic ingredients that will pump out beautiful mushrooms.

Our genetics are tested, proven, and always vigorous! We use these same blocks to grow the mushrooms we sell!

After cutting the bag, you will start to see some growth in about 5-7 days. There will be about two weeks until it is ready to harvest.
