Pioppino is an earthy, peppery, and bold mushroom. It thrives best in long cooked meals like soups and stews, but also pairs well when sautéed  with meat. Pioppino is an intermediate level difficulty grow, and does best at cooler temperatures.

When you receive the kit, cut the very top of the bag off, trying to create a lot of room between the top of the bag and top of where the mushrooms will grow. This creates a pocket where humidity can be trapped. Once mushrooms begin to form, you can cut the bag lower to expose the mushrooms. With the mister bottle, spray the new opening 2-5 times. Mushrooms thrive off of humidity, so make sure to mist it 2-5 times per day.

Common Questions

Is that mold in my bag?

Absolutely not! That's mushroom mycelium. Although it may look like mold, it's the network of living thread from which the fruiting body (mushrooms) grow. So when you see the white web-like strands in your bag, then you are ready to grow some mushrooms!

When/how do I harvest?

Once you see the fruiting body (mushroom) begin to grow, you will harvest between 4 and 7 days. You will see the small tendrils that form on lion's mane and when it's ready it will stop it's quick growth. If you wait too long, you will start to see slight discoloration on the mushroom, but rest assured that it is still fine to consume! Just take a knife, or pair of scissors and cut along the base of the mushroom to harvest it.

When is my grow kit finished?

Your grow kit will provide 2-3 flushes (or rounds) if taken care of properly. Just make sure to use the mister bottle twice per day to keep them from drying out.
