Q: Why has my first flush of mushrooms not grown yet?

HARVESTING

Q: When do I pick my Oyster mushrooms?

A: Oyster mushroom must be picked just as the first cap turns upwards. Pick them all at this point, they store beautifully in the fridge (uncovered) for 5 days. If spores / fine dust start to be produced you must pick immediately as the quality will start to decrease.

Q: When do I pick my Lion’s Mane mushrooms?

A: They can be picked just as the spines start to form but can be left for longer if you want a ‘toothier’ mushroom.

Q: How do i pick my Lion's Mane mushrooms?

A: Just twist or cut them off at the growing holes.

Q: Why does my Lion’s Mane not look like the pictures I find on the internet?

A: When cultivated at home they grow all sorts of different ways, this does not change their flavour or health benefits. Most of the pictures you see online are of mushrooms grown in highly controlled grow rooms by professionals.
