Grow Wild fungus kit

Order a Kew Shop exclusive: Discover the wonder and science of the fungi kingdom, and grow your own edible mushroom in the process!

Perfect for families growing together. Or you could get a fungus for your workplace or school – a fun way to bring nature indoors.

Tried and tested – over 2,000 people have grown this sporeless strain of Pleurotus ostreatus (edible grey oyster mushroom) - using these kits.

All proceeds support Kew’s Grow Wild outreach programme: transforming spaces and changing lives through UK native wildflowers and fungi.

Please note that if not using the kit straightaway the fungal mycelium packet will need to be refrigerated to slow the growth. If left out of the fridge it may not survive.
