green gift idea: grow your own mushroom kit

DIY Roots Mushroom Growing Kit

Here’s a green gift idea that will work for the chefs, indoor gardeners and DIY aficionados on your holiday shopping list — their very own countertop mushroom garden. The Back to the Roots Mushroom Kit will produce up to 1.5 lbs of gourmet, delicious oyster mushrooms per box – and the first crop can be harvested in as little as 10 days.


  • You can store the kit (unopened) indefinitely – no shelf-life
  • Grow up to 1 1/2 lbs of tasty pearl oyster mushrooms per box – year round
  • Multiple crops (at least 2, though some folks get up to 4)
  • Grow your first crop in as little as 10 days
  • Easy to grow – open, mist, and harvest (spray mister included).
  • All indoors – just set on a kitchen window sill and mist twice a day
  • The soil inside is 100% recycled coffee grounds – safe & sustainable

Will produce 2 crops… sometimes more. $19.95 @ GreenStreamline
