The Macramé Mushroom Fruiting Kit has all the tools you need to fruit our mushroom grow sticks! From the beautiful macramé and ceramic stand for ideal fruiting conditions to the clear tape and dispenser to easily tape up your grow stick in between flushes.
This method is best suited to mushrooms that fruit easily and need a lot of fresh air exchange (FAE). Oyster mushrooms are particularly well suited to this method but other varieties such as chestnut mushrooms will fruit well too.
Ceramic base – terracotta or black.
Macramé – earthy tones of green or red. As we use recycled t-shirt material, colours will vary from batch to batch.
Step 1: Soak the 50g of perlite with 150ml tap water. After about 10 minutes, drain off any excess water.
Step 2: Fill the outer ring of the ceramic base with the soaked perlite. Leave the inner circle empty as this is where your grow stick will stand.
Step 3: Hang the macramé in a suitable spot. Avoid direct sunlight and significant breezes.
Step 4: Place the ceramic base inside the macramé making sure the knots are evenly spaced and the base is level.
Step 5: Place the grow stick on the ceramic stand as demonstrated in the picture. Remember to position it so that the spot where the mushrooms will fruit is closest to the perlite.
Step 6: Before you make slits in the plastic to initiate fruiting, refer to the instructions for how to best fruit your specific variety of mushrooms!
