Oyster mushroom growing container

What we eat is often produced, packaged and shipped to us from factories far away from our dinner tables. It’s a system with significant environmental impact due to the carbon dioxide emissions related to shipping and packaging. By reducing the distance from producer to consumer the need for shipping and packaging would be diminished and the carbon footprint of our food consumption greatly reduced.

Mycopot is a container for growing mushrooms at home. It’s made of earthenware with a partially glazed surface that creates a humid growing environment with good airflow. Water is absorbed through the un-glazed top of the container and the glaze that covers the rest keeps the moisture inside. The holes allow the mushroom to spawn it’s fruits in clusters on the outer surface of the container.
