Life Cykel Grow Blocks are prepared from 100% natural hardwood sawdust and organic grain spawn. Our grow blocks are ready to grow in your commercial or hobby mushroom farm.
Spawn and grow blocks are designed for people who have cultivated mushrooms before and not for first timers. If you wish to learn how to grow mushrooms for your family and community join us on the mushroom mission at www.nationalmushroomnetwork.com.
Our mushroom grow kits are another easy place to start with a grow guarantee. Check them out here: Oyster Mushroom Kit | Grow Your Own Mushrooms — Life Cykel
A full set of instructions is provided on the box. Please see our How To Grow FAQs for more information.
Your Oyster Mushroom Grow Blocks will perform optimally in temperatures between 15-21 degrees. Short durations outside this temperature range will be tolerated.
Add a tree to your order for just $3 here. Life Cykel Initiated the Grow & Gift a Tree Program in September 2020 allowing customers to add a tree to their order. The trees will be gifted to local communities and organisations that will benefit from them.
We are able to commence this project thanks to our long standing relationship with Byron Bay Herb Nursery, a non for profit charity that offers employment opportunities for individuals living with a disability. The money given by our customers goes straight to the Byron Bay Herb Nursery to help facilitate growing the trees.
