What should I do if I will leave home for a couple of days?

  If you did not open the bag, you can leave the bay in a dark place for a few months. If you already    opened the bag, please use a clear plastic bag to cover the opening side of the kit after spraying.  

My mushroom withered,  what should I do?

My shiitake rod has green mold, what should I do?
