Hey Fellow ChowHounds!

Does anyone know where I can purchase these mushroom logs here in Orlando?

There are a ton of websites, But I am looking for a christmas present.

Please let me know if you know of a place here locally that sells them

THANKS

Happy Holidays!!!!

    Try Williams & Sonoma, that's about the only place I can think of. Unless one of the Internet sites you tried has a local store.

    FWIW I got one a couple of years ago and it was a mess and a total failure.

      What went wrong with it?

      I have had several friends who have loved theirs. The only thing different in my case is that we are here in FL, my experience with them is in the Northeast.

        The mushrooms never grew. I followed the directions explicitly but after a few weeks it had disintegrated into something that looked like the Sunday paper that got left out in the rain. Maybe it's my black thumb.

        I can grow peppers, roses, staghorn ferns, aloe and bromilieads. Oh, and the jade plant. Everything else I touch goes to hell.
