  • These FAQs answer general questions for people new to growing mushrooms in NZ.
  • See the pages above for answers to questions about the variety.
  • If you are already growing, see our Advanced Grow Guide.

What is the yield? What size grow kit should I get?

The bag size (weight) will influence the yield. The general rule of thumb:  you should get about half the bag's weight in mushrooms.
Over the life of the mushroom bag, estimates are:
  • 3kg - Good for a single person, or a couple of occasional mushroom eaters. About 1.5kg
  • 4kg - a couple, or a single person on a plant-based diet. About 2kg
  • 5kg -  household of 4 or a couple on a plant-based diet. About 2.5kg

If you care for the grow kit, you should get more. See our advanced Grow Guide on how to do this.

How long will the mushroom grow kit last?

With minimal care, the grow kit should last about 6-8 weeks and give 3 flushes (harvests). With care, basically soaking it in a bucket of water, it can last over 6 months and give many flushes.

Our focus is on our customer's experience, so we're here to help get the maximum potential from each bag. 

Are the mushrooms easy to grow?

With our kits, everything is done, so there is nothing to do until the mushrooms start to grow.

When they do grow, care is required for the 5  days that the mushrooms are actually growing.  

At its simplest and in ideal conditions, the only equipment you need is a spray bottle, and your only job is to mist them frequently when they are growing. Luckily, the right conditions for NZ mushroom growing are perfect for most of the year.

Do mushrooms grow in the dark?

Short answer: No! In nature, these mushrooms grow on trees in the deep shade of the forest. So, inside light is about right. They are okay with a little sun, but be careful not to let this dry them out. Interestingly the UV in sunlight will help them produce vitamin D in a similar way our body does.

However, they do not need light to grow (as a plant does) so they are okay without light.

What are the Mushrooms grown on?

  • We use certified organic Pine sawdust with a little Soy as nutrition plus rainwater
  • No nasty chemicals are used in production, no sprays, or herbicides.
  • Our products are 100% NZ made. Everything is made and grown on our permaculture farm in Horowhenua

Do you have a guarantee?

If the grow kit fails due to a problem on our part, we will replace it free of charge.

We are a small company but have BIG customer care. We're 100% committed to providing you with the best possible experience.

  • You will receive emails with tips and an explanation of what to do. These are timed to arrive at the key stages of the grow.
  • See our comprehensive grow guides, faqs and tips in the support section of our website.

Do you ship to my location?

We can only ship within NZ and the Chathams & Great Barrier Island.


  • North Island: Generally a next-day service and 2-3 days rural.
  • South Island: We use the Economy service. This is usually 2 days to metro areas, 3 days to regional areas, and 4-5 days to rural. 

Shipping cost

We are aware that the price of shipping is steep. However, these are heavy items, so the shipping cost reflects this. We pass on the straight cost of shipping, and in many cases, we are subsidising the rate to keep the overall cost reasonable.

Due to increased fuel costs, all freight companies have increased their prices substantially. 


  • For products in stock, we usually despatch orders the following day.
  • For backorders, there may be a several-day delay.


  • You can pick it up from the farm gate or the market. This option will only display as a shipping option if you select the Wellington region as an address. Any special pickup instructions (like the market and date) please put them into the notes section at checkout. Here is a list of the markets.

What variety should I get?

A brief description on each variety: what they taste like, and how to cook them.

Grey Oyster Mushroom

This is the easiest mushroom to grow in NZ conditions. To eat, you can use it in any dish where you would use chicken, and cook it similarly. It's a great vegetarian or vegan staple. If you are a meat-eater, it pairs very well with white meats including fish. The texture is not “spongy” like a field mushroom but more fleshy.

Pink Oyster Mushroom

Pink Oyster Mushrooms are perfect during the NZ summer. But, with care they'll also grow in winter. They have an umami flavour & a meaty texture. It is a playful ingredient in the kitchen, works well in curries, is a fantastic topping for pasta dishes.It is our favourite in tacos. Tip: fry it as one would do bacon, where it has similar crisp and a slightly smokey or earthy flavour.

The Shiitake Mushroom

More technical to grow than the Oysters but a favourite for the mushroom connoisseur & fungi aficionados. They are what the word Umami was invented for. Shiitake take much longer to grow than Oysters, but we have a method that has sped up the process. Our shiitake grow kits are sold as very mature, meaning they're close to pinning. Due to demand we often have a waitlist.
