Grow Guide

The first thing is to have a quick read of the FAQ. If you are short of time, just scan the questions so you know where to find the right info if you later need it later. You can find it on the knowledge base or Download it here: https://hubs.ly/H0pTP7h0

On arrival

When the mini-farm arrives there is nothing special required. Just take it out of the box, but leave it in the plastic bag.  Everything it needs is in the bag. Just give it access to some fresh air and a warmish spot. A rule of thumb: if you are comfortable, it will be comfortable. The main thing is not putting it somewhere that’s too dry. Keep away from heat pumps, fires, or heaters.

Intermediate care
  • During this stage, you do not need to mist or spray it with water. Everything it needs is right there in the bag.
  • Just find it a comfortable spot. Some suggestions are in the FAQ
  • Over the next two weeks, you can watch the mycelium grow. It’s the whitish looking stuff spreading through the bag.
