Using a mushroom kit makes the cultivation process straightforward. Simply open the kit, mist it with water daily, and in just a few weeks, you'll be ready to harvest your very own mushrooms.

While many choose to grow their kits indoors, Quebec's climate, especially its humid summers, can also be conducive to outdoor mushroom cultivation.
