Grow Your Own Mushrooms
Growing mushrooms for the first time can seem like a daunting and complicated procedure. However, a grow kit can make the experience both highly enjoyable and very straightforward. We provide you everything you need to grow the mushroom species of your choice, from start to finish. Combined with simple and clear instructions on the entire growing process to make it super easy.
The MushPots™ grow kit uses our organic brown rice flour (BRF) and vermiculite substrate recipe, with added gypsum. We have tried many recipes over the years, but have found this one to be the most fruitful by far. It provides the perfect nutrient-rich environment for your gourmet mushrooms.
This grow kit comes pre-sterilised and ready to inject with your gourmet spore/culture syringe of choice. All of our grow kits use premium HEPA air filters to allow gas exchange, while keeping contaminants from getting inside the kit. Combined with easy to inoculate injection ports, the risk of contamination (and disappointment), is drastically reduced.
WE DO NOT INCLUDE gourmet spores/culture or a physical copy of the growing guide with this kit. Instead, we have a comprehensive mushroom growing guide on our website that gives a step-by-step process on how to use this grow kit. As well as some of our own tips and tricks we have for optimising your grow.

Freshly Made With Quality Ingredients
Good ingredients make for good grow kits. That is why we only use 100%, natural and organic substrates in our kits. Mushrooms are quite sensitive to artificial chemicals and do not grow well on contaminated substrates. It is for this reason that we only use the finest, natural ingredients for your ‘shroomies.
Our PF-Tek substrate recipe consists of organic brown rice flour (BRF), vermiculite and gypsum.
- Organic brown rice flour (BRF) is hyper-nutritious, providing all the nutrients that mushrooms need to grow. Namely carbon, nitrogen and other macronutrients
- Vermiculite is super absorbent, keeping the substrate nice and hydrated for the entire growing duration
- Gypsum is a naturally occurring calcium and sulphate mineral. Professional cultivators use it to help to stabilize substrate pH levels to neutral, which mushrooms thrive at
