The Making of Moku-moku's Graphic Design



We are lucky to be able to meet a talented designer,  Leong EngKit, through a mutual friend. The graphic design is pretty much single handed designed by him and we did little changes for the design. 


Mervin and I input the demographics that the products are focusing on, the growing experience, the message of the Moku-moku wants to emphasis on, the information we wish to show our customers. 
These are some of the work-in-progress drafts and prototype:

When is the The Best Time to Harvest Your Moku-moku Oyster Mushroom?

A lot of our fans had fun growing Oyster Mushroom from Moku-moku Box. They carefully cut the opening, relentlessly water it 2-10 times a day, and got excited when they start to see mushroom buddings coming out of the soil bag.

But very often that they missed the right time to harvest the crop, and it became overgrown and unable to cook and eat it. 


Thus, the right timing for harvest is very important. There are 3 growing stages of mushroom examples below:

1. Immature Stage:
The Mushroom stem is long and the cap is small. You will need to wait for another 6-10 hours for it to become mature.


2. Mature Stage:
You can see the Mushroom Cap is significantly bigger. This is the best time to harvest it for fresh and delicious dining experience.



3. Overgrown stage:
If the mature mushroom is not harvest within 4-8 hours, it became overgrown. The edges of the mushroom cap has become uneven. The mushroom starts to lose moisture in it and it eventually dried if it is not harvest.


So guys, remember to monitor the growing stages of your mushroom. It can happen so quickly as mushroom grows from buddings to mature stage in just 24-36 hours.

Once you harvest it, turn it into your favorite delicious dishes. For me, I would opt for crunchy fried oyster mushroom.
