Mushroom Growing As A Present

Sometimes choosing a gift for someone else can be something of a nightmare.

There are inevitably a lot of variables involved, not the least of which is just how much money you have available to spend.

Then there are all those usual considerations such as just what type of thing would the recipient really value and appreciate?

Many of us buying presents have also sometimes racked our mind to try and think of something that’s just a little bit ‘different’. After all, the typical household can only accommodate so many different types of plants, ornaments and other ‘knick-knackery’.

For some, a green component is also important. Let’s be blunt, a lot of gifts end up being put away in cupboards and drawers never to be looked at again. That’s hardly great for the environment.

For all these reasons, it might make sense to think about something a bit different like a penis envy spores kit.

Sure, if your intended recipient is anticipating gold and diamonds then they are likely to look somewhat less than favourably on a mushroom growing kit! Leaving those sorts of special events presents to one side though, for many other appreciation or recognition gifts, this type of kit may go down very well indeed.

Here are just some of the advantages:

• This type of present would actually do something. It can be watched and enjoyed over a period of time as the mushrooms grow.

• It’s one of the ultimate green presents. The produce can be eaten, the substrate (soil) recycled and in many cases even the packaging is biodegradable.

• There’s no doubt that it’s also educational. Many people are very unaware about the biology of mushrooms and they can certainly learn more simply by doing a little reading of the typically easy to follow instructions that accompany such kits.
