Frequently Asked Questions


Depending on species you may get 2-4 flushes. But we guarantee at least one flush of mushrooms.

There are many factors which determine the amount of flushes. Mushrooms are a living organism and it is quite a skill to cultivate them. Humidity, fresh air and temperature are the pillars of mushroom cultivation.


Besides a hand of playing cards of the same suit. A "flush" in mushroom cultivation is each crop or harvest of mushrooms. Depending on species, they usually appear once every 7-14 days.


Most mushroom kits are token size, ours weigh between 2.2 and 2.6kg. They are what the mushroom industry calls "fruiting blocks".

That said, depending on species, first flushes usually yield 400g-1kg.

Each subsequent flush is usually smaller.


Remove your block from the plastic packaging and

Bury your block in the garden and cover with mulch or soil - this will encourage them to flush again!


Break it up and use as mulch


When there isn't enough humidity around the block, mushroom pins usually stop growing. Don't be alarmed! Your mushroom kit is still alive and can fruit. Simply remove the dried-up pins (mushrooms) and leave the block to rest for a week. After that, soak the block in cold water for 20 minutes, remove all the water from the bag, and begin again.

Flavour Profile

The flavour of Chestnut Mushrooms is different than most of the other gourmet edibles. It is nutty, sweet, and addictively aromatic. The texture is meaty and the stems provide an enjoyable crunch to many recipes. To cook they are great simply fried up in a pan with garlic and onion, or added to your favorite soup, stew, or sauce!

Delicious and Nutritious

Chestnut Mushrooms are also a fabulous and healthy addition to your diet. They are rich in minerals, vitamins, and are loaded with protein. Like other mushrooms they are low in fat and carbs, two things most people have too much of in the modern diet. They are also rich in antioxidants and have been shown to have antitumor properties.

Step-by-step Instructions

Harvest your Chestnut Mushrooms while the cap is still round and spherical. This is when they have the best flavor and texture. If you wait a little too long, there’s no harm done! The mushrooms are still delicious. If conditions are ripe you can expect 2 or 3 more flushes over the next two months!

How Do I Grow It? 

  • Step 1
  • Step 2
  • Step 3

Place your block on its side and where the block presses against the plastic, take a sharp clean knife and make a 10-12cm cut along this part of the bag (you could cut an “x” shape or a simple line). 

Place your sliced bag in a humid part of your home (near the kitchen sink or bathroom). Make sure it is kept away from direct sunlight, and keep it well hydrated. Do this by spraying the outside of your block, over the sliced area, with water at least once per day but preferably 2-3 times.

The mushrooms can take 2-6 weeks to fruit, but will usually appear within 5-7 days. Once they appear, keep watch, they grow very fast and will be ready to harvest in 7-21 days. Harvest them all at once by gently grasping the mushrooms at the base, twist and pull.

Best mushrooms

I will now get mushroom packs over buying from the supermarket. They taste great, and its really enjoyable watching the sudden (and often massive) growth overnight.

Thanks for the review Lucy. I still get surprised at how fast they grow, sometimes I take the kids out for the day, only to return and the mushrooms have galmost doubled :)

Great Kit and Service

We travelled from Melbourne to Nowra for a family catchup after Christmas and wanted a mushroom kit as a present. Brett was fantastic to deal with, nothing was a problem, and I was able to pick up the kit from his home. From all reports the Pink Oyster kit is doing well, thanks so much for such an easy exchange!
