OYSTER MUSHROOM FRUITING BAG (WHITE) 
Organic AF + beginner-friendly + just add water

GROW YOUR OWN MUSHROOMS 
Oyster mushrooms are a delicious, nutrient-dense, superfood. They are a fantastic meat substitute, and require minimal resources, time, and effort to grow. Mushroom production has a lower carbon footprint than the production of most other types of food, and an even smaller water footprint.

Eat locally-grown, organically-grown, pesticide-free food that's lower-on-the-food-chain! Grow your own edible mushrooms at home, and make mushroom risotto, mushroom tapa, mushroom tacos, mushroom chicharon, bicol express, stroganoff, kare-kare, etc. Add oyster mushrooms to soups, stews, curries, pasta, and stir-fry dishes.

For information on the product as well as growing instructions, please see the tabs below. One order is inclusive of one 1kg/35.27oz white oyster mushroom fruiting bag only

Return the fruiting bags to us once they are spent (around 5mos) and get additional discounts. See PRODUCT END OF LIFE tab below. 

For bulk orders, see WHOLESALE PRICES tab below. Please send us an email if you would like to purchase more than 50pcs, even when the product is marked SOLD OUT on our website.

    One order is inclusive of one 1kg/35.27oz white oyster mushroom fruiting bag.

    Unlike most mushroom grow kits out in the market, our mushroom fruiting bags do not come in any unnecessary cardboard packaging (save the trees!), and do not come with any unnecessary accessories (e.g. plastic spray bottle, etc). Ultimately, this means less trash + a smaller carbon footprint + our fruiting bags are cheaper.

    MUSHROOM GROWING 

    • Has a lower carbon footprint vs growing most other types of food
    • Has a lower water footprint vs growing most other types of food
    • Repurposes discarded materials (i.e. hay, sawdust, rice bran) for substrate
    • Requires minimal effort and resources (i.e. water, time, land use, fuel, electricity, manpower, etc.)

    ONE WHITE OYSTER MUSHROOM FRUITING BAG 

    • Can produce 70 to 125 grams of mushrooms per bunch or per harvest*
    • Can produce up to 500 grams of mushrooms throughout its life cycle*
    • Can produce mushrooms over the span of four to five months*

    *Provided that ideal growing conditions are met and maintained. Humidity is key.

     


    WHAT YOU NEED 

    • Space
      A small, clean area to setup your fruiting bags.

    • Humidity
      A clean, water spray bottle to mist your fruiting bags and provide moisture. Optional: damp sheets of cloth and/or cardboard, a bowl or tray of water

    • Light
      Some indirect sunlight (as in a living room), or artificial/fluorescent light
      Note: Mushrooms do not have chlorophyll

    • Oxygen
      Normal air flow for mushroom respiration (yes, they breathe like we do)

     

    GROWING YOUR MUSHROOMS 

    1. Select a space
    Find a cool, humid area for your mushroom grow bags. Choose a spot that you can mist with water— away from electrical sockets, couches, beds, or wooden flooring and furniture you love. You can set your fruiting bags up in an unused shoe rack, an old CD rack, perhaps a large box, or even just on a kitchen counter. Clean and disinfect the area! The more sterile the environment, the better. Do not put the mushrooms in a sealed container as they must be able to breathe. (If you do put the mushrooms in a container, make sure it isn't airtight, and that you regularly open the container to give the mushrooms fresh oxygen.) Do not put the fruiting bags where they will be directly exposed to the sun, or to a lot of wind. They need light, but they have to be in the shade. Anywhere indoors should be fine, as long as they aren't in total darkness. The more humid the environment, the better. 

    2. Position the fruiting bag 
    Set the mushroom bag down horizontally on your chosen surface. It would be ideal (but not necessary) to set it at a 20-30 degree angle so that the mouth of the bag points slightly downward. (Think, conventional shoe rack.)

    3. Open the fruiting bag
    Remove the piece of paper covering the mouth of the bag. Do not remove the plastic ring. Refrain from touching the substrate and/or the mouth of the fruiting bag, to avoid contamination.

    4. Mist the fruiting bag
    Gently mist the mushroom bags using a spray bottle. You can do this at least twice a day, or as many times you believe is necessary in keeping the area consistently humid. To raise the humidity around the mushroom fruiting bag, we recommend draping or installing damp towels, damp wads of cloth, or wet cardboard in close proximity to the fruiting bag. The wetter, the better. You can also install a tray or bowl of water near the mouth of the fruiting bag. (A humidifier is also a great tool, as long as it only diffuses clean water.)

    IMPORTANT:
    The goal is to make the area around the bag as humid as possible, not wet/soak the bag. Mushrooms like kulob, damp, muggy, humid, environments.

    TIP:
    Keep the spray bottle next to your mushrooms and gently mist them whenever you pass them.

    5. Let the mushrooms pin
    Be patient. Keep misting the fruiting bags. Eventually, you will see white fluffy fungal formations form at the mouth of the fruiting bag. Do not freak out. Those are the mushrooms. Mushroom pinheads may begin to form within a few weeks of spraying. Gently mist your mushrooms, but do not spray or splash water directly onto the pins or into the substrate as this could lead to contamination. You do not want drops or pools of water to form inside the bag. (If this happens, it's okay, just pour/drain as much of it out.)

    6. Let the mushrooms flower
    Mushrooms will bloom almost overnight (over the span of a couple of days). Mist your growing area with water regularly until the mushrooms open up and flatten out.

    7. Harvest your mushrooms
    Wait for the mushrooms to really blossom and open up. The deep dimples at the center of the mushroom heads will become shallow and start to disappear. The best time to harvest is when the edges of the mushrooms, from curling downward, start to level out and flatten. Gently pull/twist the entire clump of mushrooms off. It should break free from the spout of the bag cleanly, and easily.

    8. Repeat the process
    Do not throw the bag after your first flush, as your mushroom bag will still continue fruiting. After your first flush, continue misting the fruiting bag. Don't get impatient. You should get smaller flushes once every few weeks or so. If you care for your bag, it can keep producing for up to four or five months.

    FOR A LARGER HARVEST
    Alternatively, if you want bigger harvests but a shorter life span for the bag, you can open the bag or cut a larger hole into it. You'll get larger flushes but the bag won't last 5 months. In total, one bag can produce up to half a kilo of mushrooms. It's your call whether you want that fast or stretched over x number of months.

    This mushroom fruiting bag is made of Polypropylene (PP). Polypropylene is a “thermoplastic” used in mushroom farming for its ability to hold mushroom substrates through pasteurization. Polypropylene fruiting bags won't melt/degrade/leach unless exposed to sustained temperatures of 266 to 340 °F. The material is considered safe for use and re-use with food, compared to other plastics. Not exactly zero waste, we know.

    While we ourselves avoid using plastic as darned much as we can, as we practice zero waste in our home, we also take a lot of factors other than packaging into consideration when making our purchases. Most other food types require an inordinate amount of resources (i.e. water, land, fuel, energy, fertilizers, pesticides, antibiotics, feed, packaging, etc.) to be grown, transported, and stored. (It is important to note that most of these resources also come in packaging.) Getting a mushroom fruiting bag is sort of like getting a seedling in a seedling bag, except you're growing mushrooms, instead of plants. All things considered, mushroom production has a much lower carbon footprint than the production of most other types of food, and an even smaller water footprint. If you're looking to minimize your impact on the environment, mushrooms are the noms to nom!

    Please return your spent mushroom fruiting bags to us. We will compost the substrate for you, and take the plastic rings/spouts back to our partner mushroom farm for reuse. We will also be reusing the PP bags as seedling bags for the food forest we are building at Rocco's parents' property in Batangas.

    You can take the fruiting bags to us (in Salcedo Village, Makati) or to any of our events. 

    For each spent mushroom fruiting bag you return, we will gift you a PHP20 discount coupon for use on your next mushroom fruiting bag purchase. Returned mushroom fruiting bags must be intact.

      We allow bulk orders for mushroom fruiting bags. Having a number of bags fruit simultaneously is how you 1. get your ROI on mushrooms right away, and 2. really start to eat mushrooms on a regular basis.
