Coffee Mushrooms Day 37: Fruiting Bodies!

Some had given up on our bucket of rotting coffee grounds. I was almost ready to join them. Our booklet said they might take only two weeks to grow oyster mushrooms, but nothing much had changed in 5 weeks.

Yesterday I dumped a whole cup of water in there, wondering if they were perhaps on the dry side. And the little fellas were happy to interpret that as a sudden rainstorm, and tonight we have the beginnings of actual mushrooms!

Here’s a time-lapse video a guy made that will, with a bit more luck, be a preview of shrooms to come.
