Grow At Home Mushroom Kit Review and Giveaway- Ends 01/01(continental US only)

From Company's Website:
"Inspired by the idea of producing local, fresh food from what was an urban waste stream, Back to the Roots has grown to create the Grow-Your-Own Mushroom Garden which lets anyone, across the country, grow their own gourmet mushrooms at home as well! Our Efforts Today:
  • Help families grow over 135,000lbs of fresh food at home in 2011!
  • Selling our kits at over 300 Whole Foods nationwide "
My Review: 
I recently reviewed Grow at home Mushroom Kit. This kit is used to grow mushrooms indoor. It comes as a small box. This kit has no shelf life and it can be kept unopened as such for 6 months. 

This kit comes along with a small spray mister.

You just need to follow some easy steps and then wait for mushrooms to grow:-

  • When you want to grow Mushroom Garden, just take soil bag having mushroom seeds and coffee grounds from box.
  • Now, make a + sign cut in soil bag.
  • Soak this cut bag in water for 12 hrs.
  • Now put bag back in kit and mist it daily for 2 times. In 10 days time you will see mushrooms coming out from your kit.
Sounds Magical :-)
Make sure to keep this kit in kitchen window, mushrooms should take some air. I made mistake of putting my kit in living room which has heating on. My mushrooms died in 3-4 days as they couldn't get fresh air. I couldn't taste my home grown mushrooms. If you can give proper care to this garden then this can produce upto 1 1/2 lbs of mushroom.
