Mushroom Windowsill Kit – King Oyster

Our Windowsill Mushroom Kits will allow anyone to grow King Oyster mushrooms from their very own windowsill. Handfuls of these delicious mushrooms will now be just clutches away from your favourite dish.

King Oyster is an popular variety from the mushroom family. A strong flavour when eaten raw but, celebrated for their meaty texture and umami flavour when cooked. These mushrooms make a great addition to Asian cuisine including stir-fries and rice dishes.

Mushrooms are tasty, low in calories, high in protein and a great source of fiber especially for those on plant-based diets. They provide you with vital vitamins including vitamin B, selenium, potassium and copper. With our handy kits, you’ll soon have this delicious and health beneficial vegetable at just the fraction of the cost.

Whether you’re a full-time gardener or beginner, this handy kit includes a base tray, lid, and pre spawned substrate and easy to follow instructions.

Planting and care:

Simply keep them moist and out of direct sunlight and your first crop should be ready to pick in a matter of weeks, plus you can expect at least another 2 pickings after that. Dimensions: 17.5cm (7") x 27.5cm (11") x 8cm (3½") depth. These kits need to be started on receipt and are unsuitable for storage.

Dimensions: 17.5cm (7") x 27.5cm (11") x 8cm (3½") depth.

Growing Information

Full growing instructions included.

Always wash your hands before you handle any of the kits to avoid bacteria contaminating the substrates and development of other moulds.

The kit contains a base tray, plastic lid and a plastic bag containing a “spawned” substrate.

When opening the kit, check if the substrate has grown completely white, otherwise cover
the base tray with the plastic lid and store for 10–14 days at 20–25°C. Make sure that you
leave the plastic bag around the substrate.

1. Cultivation: You start the cultivation process by making five 2-3cm incisions/slits in the plastic containing the substrate. Then water the substrate with ¼ litre of water, so that the surface is moist then leave the set with the plastic lid on at a temperature of 20-25°C.


2. After around 2 weeks, white pins appear, now put the kit in a room where daylight enters, at a temperature of 10–15°C but not in direct sunlight.

3. Make sure that the surface of the substrate never dries out. Moisten at least once a day with a plant spray making sure it does not become too wet. From the white pins, small stems with
grey dots appear, the so-called “cluster”. Continue to spray the mushrooms daily to prevent them drying out during fruiting.

4. Harvesting: total harvesting time may extend to three months. A cluster must be pulled out from the substrate with a turning movement, making sure that no part of flesh remains in the substrate.

Before consumption, trim the mushroom 1cm below the gills. The stems, which are slightly
tougher, can be used to make a sauce or soup.

Now the cycle repeats itself at point 3. 

You may harvest 3 times from the set. Before each harvest run, make 5 new incisions/slits
in the plastic.

Good luck and bon appetit!
