About Growing Your Mushroom
1. How to properly cut the “+” shape on the medium bag?
Cut a “+” shape with each cut length around 4-5 cm using clean knife, our experience shows that it is best grow with cut length no longer than 5 cm.
Leave the cutting as it is. Do not attempt to bend or remove the plastic sheet/ plastic bag as it is meant to protect the medium bag from moisture lost.

As you may know, DNA is present in every cell of all plants and animals and determines all genetic traits of the individual organism.
With the Fruit DNA experiment, you’ll extract, isolate, and observe the DNA of a fruit in a matter of minutes.
Create a colorful blob in a test tube using oil, water, and a secret ingredient that makes the whole thing fizz, bubble, and erupt.
In this experiment, you will use some basic ingredients to make a Bubbling Blob. What? You’ve never seen a Bubbling Blob? It slithers and twists around like a snake. Just when you least expect it, the blob breaks apart into lots of tiny blobs, and then they join back together. It's an incredible demonstration in density and solubility. You'll create a solution that shows why water and oil don't mix, and why simple chemical reactions produce extraordinary results!
The growth of a seed into a young plant or a seedling is called germination. Planting seeds and watching them grow is a wonderful activity for kids. There are lots of opportunities for experimentation while learning about how plants grow.
The seed germination pouch was developed as an inexpensive, space-saving replacement for pots and similar containers used to grow plants. Seed Germination Pouch allows kids to watch how seeds sprout, which is a process normally hidden by dirt.
Seeds are placed in the trough formed by the paper wick, water or a substrate of choice is added and the seed germination pouch is placed in an upright position. The composition of the nutrient solution can be varied as desired.
Most seeds can be grown in the seed germination pouch. However, if the seed is very small, such as tobacco seeds, it is better to moisten the paper wick before placing the seeds. This will prevent the small seeds from falling through the perforations. This pouch dimension is suitable for small seeds such as Wheat, Cotton and Rice.
If the seeds is dicotyledons (such as soybean) or hard seed coats (such as rice) we advise to put the seeds in the seed germination pouch after soaking.
If you have a green thumb but minimal garden space, why not create your own mini-world full of lush and beautiful plants by making your own terrarium? Terrariums are easy-to-make, low-maintenance gardens, and can last almost indefinitely with minimal water.
Fun way to get kids interested in botany. Kids love to learn and see how things work. They will learn about botany (the biology of plants), how eco-systems work and will see first-hand how seeds, soil, sun, and water work together to transform into beautiful plants.
