Lions mane mushroom grow kits
Don't miss out on these unique mushroom grow kits!
Lion’s Mane (Hericium erinaceus) is delicious with heaps of benefits and has been used for centuries to help support a healthy system. It is extremely rare in the UK and has now been protected, making it illegal to pick in the wild.
Luckily, you can grow your own at home with this wonderful kit, which is incredibly easy to use. Simply place your kit somewhere indoors with some natural light and spray regularly with a water mister. The kit includes full detailed instructions as well as tasty cooking tips for you to enjoy.
Having recently establishing a fond interest in mycology I decided it was time to focus my efforts towards bulk grain spawn. As this was my 1st time spawning to bulk I decided to use pre-sterilised grain bags. My requirements were I needed quick shipping, transparency with the supplier to be able to ask questions as to minimise risk for contaminants. Not only did Upcycled Mushrooms send me my order within a few days of placing (bare in mind all rye grain orders a prepared fresh) it came within 5 working days! During which Upcycled Mushrooms personally advised me on my questions. It was a great experience all in all. I Cannot recommend this seller anymore to any UK based mycologists. Their effective shipping prices and communication Is unparalleled!
'Excellent quality product - no problems so far. Both spawn bags colonized quickly - no contaminants - and led to a really good yield. Communication was prompt, as was delivery. Would (and have!) ordered again'

Excellent quality rye grow bags. Completely sterile and allow for safe and easy colonization. Supplier was so helpful when the courier lost my order and sent out a replacement which arrived very swiftly. Best UK supplier I have found & very much recommend!
The biggest challenge I had before purchasing from Upcycled mushrooms was building up the confidence to go for it. The grow box has everything you need in it and it really is as simple as adding a spray of water a few times a day to keep the humidity up.
After purchasing my lions mane grow box I was so happy with how easy and how little equipment and space I needed to start the grow.
I feel a sense of achievement that I’ve been able to start this journey at the bottom of the ladder and am already looking at how to take it to the next level. The confidence that the simple grow box made the whole concept of mycology so much less intimidating and really accessible for absolutely anyone.
If your on the fence about purchasing I’d say just go for it as £25 is a very reasonable price for the amount of lions mane you get. I paid £27 for 60grams of dried fruiting body from one company, which at the time I thought was OK. With upcycled I’m going to get 10X that and can then decide what I want to do with it which is now just a no brainer. I honestly wish I did this sooner as I could have saved more money haha.
If you’ve got any questions shoot the email a question and Patrick replies really quick and is super helpful. I even sent him a picture of where I was going to grow them to see if it was OK because I was so unsure and he gave me the thumbs up and guidance I needed.
Honestly couldn’t recommend the company enough.
Thanks for providing me a great product which was so easy to set up, I cant wait to see these amazing mushrooms fruit in all their glory.

My biggest challenge growing mushrooms has been both space and sterilisation. For that reason I thought, let's step back a bit and start with a mushroom growing kit.
After loads of recommendations from other growers to purchase from Upcycled Mushrooms, I decided to get one of their kits. Well I tell you what, it made the process SO much easier. Now I actually feel like I can grow mushrooms!
I went for Lions Mane, something a bit different, and it's just growing and growing and growing, so cool! I would still like to try growing from scratch again at some point, but I'm more than happy to keep getting kits for the time being, they're so easy to use. I also found help easily enough; I had a few questions about the process (what with it being my first time growing) and Upcycled Mushrooms got back to me quickly, gaving me advice and reassurances.
So yeah, I would definitely recommend them.
