Lion’s Mane Mushroom
Looking to grow your own medicinal Lions Mane? Look no further! Our sawdust spawn makes cultivation this edible fungus a breeze! Softball size clusters with cascading long spines make this Hericium one of the most breath-taking mushrooms. Lion’s Mane has received attention in recent years for its neurotrophic capabilities by potentially keeping our brains strong. While Lion’s Mane grown in sawdust culture can sometimes be slightly bitter, its log grown counterpart is almost always sweet and succulent. Patience is required for growing it on logs, often taking two years for fruiting to begin. Fruits in spring and fall. The sawdust spawn can be used via the standard “drill and fill” method as used for shiitake cultivation; however, an increasingly promising method is the “totem method,” used on larger diameter rounds (especially on beech and other medium-hard/medium-soft hardwoods).
