Enoki, Winter Mushroom, or Velvet Foot, Flammulina velutipes
Our Hantana™ Golden Enoki grows fast, looks spectacular, and tastes great! Another strain developed from wild mushrooms found here on our farm, our enoki is a bit more challenging to grow than the oyster species or Reishi. It incubates happily at a wide range of room temperatures but may need a cold snap - 2 or 3 days in the refrigerator - to trigger fruiting.
This mushroom is a great choice for teaching and learning how to measure and calculate growth rates, because it grows upward rapidly - sometimes an inch or more a day - making it easy and exciting for kids to track (see the slide show above).
The kit includes dry substrate ingredients, live mushroom spawn, a growing bag, and complete instructions. You provide some coffee grounds, hydrogen peroxide (available at grocery and drug stores), and water.

The kit was mixed on 03/15/14. I checked it this morning, 03/24/14, and the bag is almost solid white mycelium. It is looking very good, but I am giving it a few more days before I open the bag. This kit is progressing like all the DIY kits I have received from The imaginary Farmer. Each one has produced 2 or 3 flushes of fresh delicious mushrooms.

I'm a total newbie to mushroom growing. I;d neen thinking about getting into this for years, and finally decided to give it a go. After a weekend of searching online for information and mushroom kits, I settled on The Imaginary Farmer, for both the reasonable prices and the clear information. Just a day after I placed my order, I called Owen with a few questions. He was very helpful ans seemed more than happy to spend some time getting me straight. He also recommended some online sources and readingmaterials to help increase my understanding.
In less than a week I had my kit, even though it was a a busy time between Christmas and New Years. I started my kit within a couple days of recieving it. Now, only a few days later I have mycelium multiplying before my eyes - mush more than I expected so quickly. I have no doubt this kit will produce an abundance on delicious Enoki Mushrooms for me. I and THRILLED with the results thus far.
If you're a first-timer like me, all I can say is DO NOT hesitate. Just follow the easy, step by step instructions and I believe you'll be thrilled your results too.
