You don't need to water mushrooms like a plant. The spray bottle is for creating humidity. Humidity is a key factor for successful mushroom growth. Spray the area around your kit with a few pumps of water whenever you have a chance, at least 2-3 times a day.

If you can see condensation underneath the plastic flaps of your X cut area this is enough water. Too much water on the surface of the block can cause problems. If it's looking a little dry, increase your frequency of spraying. Continue to mist the air around your mushrooms as they grow to prevent them from drying out.

It's best not to miss a day of misting, however we understand this may be unavoidable. If you know you will be unable to mist your kit, create a mini micro-climate around your grow kit to keep up the humidity. You can do this by placing a wet tea towel around the base of the kit or filling a sink with water and placing the kit nearby.
