Black pearl growkit

Ahoy there, mycology enthusiasts and gourmet pirates alike! Set sail on a culinary adventure with the Black Pearl—a mushroom not just renowned on the high seas but in kitchens far and wide. It's the Pleurotus ostreatus hybrid that doesn't just walk the plank; it struts.

This buccaneer of mushrooms is the lovechild of the regal King oyster and its speedy cousin, the Grey oyster. The result? A mush-room with the chewiness of the King and all the growing gusto of the Grey, making it a treasure chest of delight for home cultivators looking for a booty of flavor.

When you're ready to embark on your mushroom growing voyage with the Black Pearl, remember—these pearls like it cool. If the ambient temperatures of your abode are warmer than a pirate ship's hold, tuck your grow kit in the fridge for a few days pre-cultivation. This bit of chill is like a splash of ocean spray, invigorating your Black Pearls to grow with the vigor of a crew heading for shore leave.

Shiver your timbers at the thought of a cold shock? Fear not! It's just the kick these fungi need to hoist the sails and get growing. Otherwise, you might find your crop slower to start than a parrot learning sea shanties.

Our Finnish countryside lab—far from the sea's salty spray—is where we concoct these adventurous grow kits. We combine pure sawdust, nutritious wheat bran, and the elixir of life (water, not rum) into bags, then sterilize them to ensure no scurvy bacteria lay claim to your treasure. We then inoculate this pristine substrate with our own home-grown, swaggering mycelium.

After that? It's a straight shot to Port Delicious. No mysterious ingredients, no Davy Jones' Locker of chemicals—just unadulterated, organic mushroom cultivation ready to weigh anchor right in your kitchen. Chart your course, follow the map (we mean, instructions), and in just a couple of weeks, you'll be feasting on the plunder. Arrr, me hearties, to mushrooms and beyond! 🍄🏴‍☠️🌊

Made to order

Mushroom mycelium is a fresh product and you will get the best results if the mycelium is as fresh as possible upon arrival.


Because of this we make all products containing mushroom mycelium to order.


The normal lead time of most products containing mycelium is 2-3 weeks.


The mycelium need some time to ”take over” or colonize the growth substrate once they have been manufactored.


Otherwise there is a risk that the mycelium would not be strong enough to survive the shipping process.
