Ideal Conditions

There are four essential ingredients that will ensure you get the most out of your Mushroom Factory, they are:

Oyster mushrooms need light to grow. Place your oyster mushrooms in a well lit area- but not direct sunlight! The rule of thumb is that if there is enough light for you to read in, there is enough light for your mushrooms to grow.

The best temperature for your mushroom factory is between 18-20 degrees. Your kit can also produce mushrooms between 12-25 degrees, but it will do better if kept in the 18-20 degree range.

Water your factory by misting water on to the window and the humidity tent surface 2-3 times a day.

Good movement of air is important for healthy mushroom growth. You will soon see if your mushrooms aren't getting enough air - they will develop long spindly stems and small caps.
