Q- How long does it take for mushrooms to grow on a fruiting block?

A- The growth time can vary depending on the mushroom species and environmental conditions, but generally, mushrooms can start to appear within a few weeks after setting up the fruiting block.

Q- Can I reuse fruiting blocks or grain spawn bags?

A- While it's possible to reuse fruiting blocks or grain spawn bags, it's generally recommended to start with fresh, sterile materials for each new mushroom-growing cycle to minimize the risk of contamination and ensure optimal yields. So, we do not reccomend it.
