Both commerical and native oyster strains produce beautiful, large mushrooms!


All spawn and culture work is done in-house in our own laboratory.


>> Sterilized grain spawn and >> dowel spawn are also available for purchase.


All spawn cultures we offer have been sourced within NZ with permission to onsell.

We do not offer instructions on how to use grain spawn -- you can find a huge amount of info on this topic on youtube and google :)


We can supply bulk weekly (6kg+ per week) orders of fresh spawn for people wanting to grow for market-supply or small commercial operations. Please submit a contact form to discuss pricing.


Beginners / first-time growers please start with our >> Easy 5 Step Oyster Grow kit (This introductory mushroom kit will set you up with a good understanding of what spawn is and how to use it). Please note the 5 step kit method of growing will ONLY work for Oyster mushrooms (Grey Oyster, Pink Oyster and the Native Velvet Oyster).

Always identify any mushroom before consuming!

"Excellent service!

Sporeshift have consistently got the best service of any online provider I have used. From the time of order to delivery the communication is great. I frequently wonder why other businesses can't to it the way they do. Excellence in action. And no, I am not their mother ... just a satisfied customer and mushroom lover. :)"

"Loving watching the magic of the growth cycle and increasing our own food security and self reliance in the process! My kindy wildlings are loving the video updates of how they're going each day! Excited to extend my varieties next. Oysters were definitely a winner on a magenta spreen, thyme, white sauce and olive pizza tonight!!"
