Terrashroom is currently available for preorder & will be shipping at a later date.
See “When will the Terrashroom be shipped?” FAQ below.
Our target ship date for the first batch is late summer 2023.
Subsequent batches will be shipped later in the year. New orders will be shipped in late 2023 or early 2024.
See timeline above for more details.
Shipping batches will be determined on chronological sequence of when the order was placed.
Number of orders per batch & future batch ship dates are still being determined; however, we will notify you approximately a month prior to shipping your terrashroom.
When we are ready to ship your order, we will reach out to you with instructions on how to pay the remaining balance on your preorder. (Don't worry! You will still be locked in to the early bird discount pricing.)
Until then, please hang tight! Do not place a new full-purchase preorder and then request a refund of your original deposit as this will forfeit your original place in line for shipping batches.
Yes! Terrashroom is designed for use by complete beginners & novices.
The companion smartphone app walks you through the simple, 4-step setup process so you can start growing mushrooms asap.
If you can order a pizza or post a picture to facebook, then you'll have no problem using the terrashroom app.
You can grow most of your favorite mushroom species in a terrashroom.
We've designed terrashroom for ease-of-use but also give the user total customization:
1) Ready-to-grow mushroom cakes
We ship ready-to-grow, pre-inoculated mushroom cakes (already injected with mushroom spores) that are ready to fruit.
The pre-inoculated cake varieties include:
(+ other varieties coming soon)
2) Blank mushroom cakes
We ship pre-sterilized mushroom cakes that allow you to inject your favorite spores into (links to spore suppliers provided).
The two varieties we will offer are:
-dung-loving mushroom cakes
-hardwood-loving mushroom cakes
Note: you cannot grow mycorrhizal species or other mushroom species that require symbiotic relationships with local flora.
You'll likely start seeing your mushrooms grow in as little as 7-10 days for most varieties we offer.
Terrashroom provides optimal environmental conditions to encourage growth, but keep in mind mushrooms can take many weeks to harvest depending on the species grown.
The yield size of your mushroom harvests is dependent on different variables, such as; the size & weight of the grow substrate, variety of mushrooms species, how many previous flushes grown from the cake, etc.
Terrashroom users could expect approximately 1.5 - 4 pounds per month for most hardwood & dung-loving mushroom species.
Our cakes are made from a special formula that is designed to produce big, bountiful, & healthy mushroom harvests.
They are made from a variety of renewable and natural materials such as coconut husk, straw, rye, and other naturally decomposed materials.
Your terrashroom is designed to be ultra-low maintenance, without the need to clean regularly.
However, we recommend a light cleaning before & after after harvests.
This can be done by spraying a light cleaning solution & wiping down inside surfaces. Some components are dishwasher safe.
You can grow virtually anything in a terrashroom;
-microgreens (lemon grass, broccoli sprouts, etc.)
-small orchids & other rare flowers
-moss & ferns
-small reptiles & insects (untested - try at your own risk)
Unfortunately, we cannot currently ship internationally at this time.
While we understand the demand and interest around the world, we are currently focusing on establishing a strong foundation in our domestic market before expanding globally.
No. The terrashroom app is needed to unlock the full grow chamber functionality & potential (i.e. hyperlapse grow camera, mood lighting, grow environment presets)
The size is roughly 2150in^3 or about 14"x14"x22".
We designed it so it's the perfect size to fit on a desk, countertop, or nightstand, & produce substantial flushes of fresh mushrooms per month 🍄
