mushrooms. There are two options for inoculating (injecting) the
You may inject spores directly into growth substrate; this is a little
less work but takes longer and occasionally not enough of the spores
germinate, or Liquid Culture: For much quicker colonisation and larger
yields you must first inoculate and colonise a Myco-Mate®
Liquid Culture vial and then inject the liquid culture into the bag of
growth substrate. The Myco-Mate® Fast Fungi will yield several
hundred grams of mushrooms in a few weeks, so it is faster and greater
yielding than other mushroom grow kits. Each kit comes with complete
instructions and is not be used to grow mushrooms of the magic kind in
countries where it is illegal to do so.

Myco-Box is a very small but very quick way of growing mushrooms.
The kit includes a small tub (250ml) of sterilised substrate, a tray of
vermiculite, 1 alcohol wipe, and a humidity tent. Syringe NOT included.
(Available below, not all are Legal for cultivation in the UK)
Method; Use the alcotip wipe to clean the lid and needle of the
syringe. Inject 4 x 0.5ml through the lid of the tub. Seal the holes
with tape immediately after. Leave in a warm place (28 C is ideal) for
around 3 weeks, or until the whole thing has turned white.
Fill the vermiculite tray with boiling water and allow to cool for a
few hours, when cooled, drain off any excess water. Remove the lid's
from both tubs and sit the white block open end down onto the
Now move the tray into the humidity tent, fold over the top and seal
with paper clips. Your first mushrooms (approx 35 grams) should appear
in a few weeks. Pick off any mushrooms just before they open their
caps, add a little extra water to the vermiculite, and put it back in
the bag to fruit.
Yields of up to 100grams are possible but 70-80 is more likely.
Remove tinfoil from
myco-box. You are going to start the kit by injecting spores at 4
equally spaced sites around the top of the box (near to the edge as
shown in the diagram to the left)
Swab each site with the
supplied alcohol wipe before injecting each of the four sites with
approx 0.5ml of spore solution. Quickly tape over the holes afterwards
(with selotape or similar). That's it! Relax.
the box somewhere
warm and dark (26-28 °C is ideal for most tropical species).
You will see small white spots of mushroom mycelium start to grow after
a few days.
2-3 weeks until the
contents turn completely white (except for a small top layer, which
will not turn white as it is dry). Then place it in the fridge for two
Now you are ready to fruit.
Add some boiling water to the vermiculite in the tray, put the lid on
and leave to cool for a couple of hours. When it's fully cooled, drain
off the excess water from the vermiculite by opening the lid slightly.
Remove the lids from the tray and Myco-Box and "birth" the cake by
loosening the lid, inverting the Myco-Box and letting it drop on to the
vermiculite in the tray.
Now place the whole tray and its contents carefully inside the plastic
bag and close the top with paperclips or tape. Place somewhere warm
(22-24 °C) which receives some light (but not direct sun). You
should see mushrooms appear within 1-3 weeks. Pick your mushrooms when
they begin to open their caps. Add a bit more water to the vermiculite,
close the bag again and you should get a couple more crops. With little
or no modification, this method could probably be applied to many
species of saphrophytic fungi, yielding similar results. Enjoy
