What tastes nicer than home grown mushrooms! You will receive 2 complete propagator sets in this package, each containing one type of mushroom. The varieties are: the White Mushroom (Agaricus bisporus variegata ‘Albidus’) and the French (Chestnut) Mushroom (Agaricus bisporus variegata ‘Avellaneus’). Both have a wonderful flavour and taste great in pasta and other dishes. Simply follow the growing instructions and before you know it you will be enjoying wonderful mushrooms for weeks on end.

You will receive 2 propagator sets, 1 for each type of mushroom, consisting of a tray with a transparent lid and, among other things, a layer of full grown compost in which the mushrooms can grow. Keep the little packet of 'casing soil' from each hobby set in a cool place until later. Place the lid on each tray and store them for about 4 days at 20-25 ˚C. After 4 days the compost will be covered in a white mould. Now pierce the packets of casing soil: prick 5 holes, top and bottom. Place each packet in a bucket with a pint of water for 30 minutes, allowing the soil to leak out. Now spread this damp casing soil evenly over the layer of compost in your propagators. Store the propagators at 20-25 ˚C for 5-8 days with the lids closed.
The mushroom spawn will grow up through the compost during the next 5-8 days. Carefully make a hole in the casing soil to check if you can see white threads already. Are there white threads over the whole surface? Then you can continue propagating in a cooler position. Place your propagator draught free at about 15-18 ˚C. Use a water spray on the casing soil every day, do not allow the soil to dry out. However, it is also not good for the mushrooms' development if the soil is too damp. After about 5 days you will see the first white buds appear (don't touch!).
