My niece got me one for christmas last year. I forgot all about it till I found it getting my turkey stuff together in the spring. It was a piece of log that was supposed to have 2 different types on it. When I found it it had sprouted(?) but by then it was pretty dried out. She had given them to my 2 sisters who did get some shrooms off theirs, of course they followed the directions and didn't put it away for later LOL.
