Shiitake Health Benefits

Shiitake mushrooms are high in B vitamins, and they serve as a food source of vitamin D.
Some shiitake health benefits include the ability to aid weight loss, support cardiovascular health, fight cancer cells, improve energy levels and brain function, reduce inflammation, and support the immune system.

Shiitake Growing Instructions

Step 1: Cold Shock
Put your new mushroom block in the fridge for at least 24-hours.

Step 2: Open
Take your block out of the fridge and give it a gentle hit on a hard surface to send a little shock through it. Take the block completely out of both bags and set it on a plate.

Step 3: Setup
Find a good spot for your block to live. An ideal spot would be on a countertop out of direct sunlight and away from drafts or heaters. This kit includes a humidity tent. Roll the opening of the bag up and stand it loosely over your block. Mist the block and the inside of the humidity tent at least daily with a spray bottle.

Step 4: Harvest
After a few days, you should see mushrooms starting to grow all over the block. Pick when the caps start to open up and the gills on the underside of the cap are visible. It is best not to let the caps get completely flat.

Step 5: Rest
Remove the humidity tent and stop misting the block. Let it rest and dry out for 2 weeks.

Step 6: Soak and Repeat
Dunk the block in a pot of cold tap water for a few hours or overnight. Set something heavy, like a plate, on the block to hold it under water. Follow steps 3 through 6 to keep growing. This block should yield 2 - 4 harvests of mushrooms. Throw the block in the compost when it starts to fall apart or mold severely.
