Lion’s Mane Mushroom


Lion’s Mane Mushroom

Hericium erinaceus Ships on our regular schedule, between about March 30 and April 23. Pure white cluster of icicle-like teeth, often found on beech and birch in the wild. When cooked, they have a consistency similar to crab meat. Naturally fruits during cooler months. Due to a slower colonization rate, a higher inoculation rate should be used. Can be grown on many different hardwood species, large- or small-diameter logs.

Plug Spawn are small wooden dowels colonized by mushroom mycelium, available in bags of 100 or 500.
Sawdust Spawn is hardwood sawdust colonized by mushroom mycelium; bag contains 5½ lbs.
Plug Kit contains 100 plugs, wax, dauber, 5⁄16" drill bit, instructions.
Countertop Kit contains a 5-lb inoculated sawdust block and instructions.
