They work but yes, they can fail. Then you're out $108.

For that much you could get a pressure cooker, and everything else you'd need for all the shrooms you could want for the rest of your life.


Actually, it's very easy to isolate a super producing sclerotia strain.

Follow the strain isolation technique on Let's Grow Mushrooms, and then select sectors early which are brown in color.  By the second or third transfer, you'll see stones developing, and this is only about 1 month after the original swipe of spores on agar.

Now, take each stone and move it to a new dish.  Soon, the mycelium will grow out and you'll see fresh stones developing, and if they're good strains, the sclerotia is forming long before the mycelium reaches the edge of the plate.  Pick strains which form four or five stones within two weeks and use these for your grain masters. -- RR

A pressure cooker for 108 bucks? That's a pretty damn nice pressure cooker... you can pick them up on ebay for just a few dollars.

hey - pay attention. He said a pressure cooker and everything else you need.

I bought that kit. It's not too bad. But it focuses much more on the educational side of cloning and microbiological methods than on the quickest, easiest way to grow shrooms. I started using the kit, but once I got to the spawning phase, the mycelium seemed to stop growing. I have transferred what I could from the test tubes and put them inside grain/whole bran mixture jars, and one vermaculite/brown rice flour jar. Hopefully I can salvaged what I started with the mushroom kit.
