It is not easy to create a diet and lifestyle based on plant-based foods, especially if you pay attention to where the ingredients come from or how they are harvested. In an ideal world, we would all have the freedom to grow our own organic food in the backyard without pesticides, but few of us have that luxury.
Indoor gardening is becoming more and more popular these days, but it's not the only thing you can grow inside your home. Mushrooms are easy to obtain with the "do it yourself", but you still need to find the right conditions. And this is where Shrooly comes into play: a 'magic box' that allows you to grow mushrooms in a simple and… beautiful way.
Shrooly, a 'printer' for growing mushrooms
The mushrooms I'm a clever mystery and a wonder of nature: we talked about it several times, they intrigue us a lot. Their edible variants are an excellent source of nutrition and taste, but they can also provide therapeutic or medicinal benefits when used correctly. Despite their affordability, getting high-quality mushrooms is difficult unless you grow them, and this nifty device simplifies the process.
Shrooly is a kind of 'printer' for growing mushrooms. Indeed, if you pass me the comparison it is almost a 'Nespresso' for mushrooms. Just insert a capsule into the device and turn it on. Shrooly can produce mushrooms in days, compared to weeks for many minis indoor greenhouses.
This gadget does away with all the complex parts - as the mushrooms grow, all you have to do is watch them. It looks like a piece of furniture. Of course, you can also bypass the 'autopilot' when and if you feel more experienced: with the inevitable companion app you can adjust settings such as humidity and light.
Shiitake, Reishi, Lion's mane, Enoki: just a few varieties of mushrooms that can be easily grown with this gizmo. With just one capsule you can get two crops of mushrooms, roughly equivalent to three kilo packs of those you buy at the supermarket.
With a few differences: first, the choice (it is not easy to find medical varieties such as Reishi or Turkey Tail under the house). Second, the capsules are pesticide-free and made from 100% recycled materials. Third, growing these mushrooms takes less time and takes place directly at home. Wednesday, it's fun to watch them grow. Fun? Already.
An 'aquarium' for mushrooms
Here is another special trait of growing mushrooms indoors with a device like Shrooly. It's an aesthetic plus, if you like. It has a minimalist design that goes very well with home furnishings: practically a living room object that shows the birth of an organism day by day. In short, it's also nice to see. And that's not a secondary factor: most people are more likely to consume self-produced foods if they look good, smell, and taste good. Finding this experience at home certainly brings people closer to this type of food, marking a clear difference (for example) between fresh and frozen mushrooms.
An interesting approach to indoor farming. If you are interested, you can find it here on the Indiegogo crowdfunding site.
