Lion’s mane mushroom kits are the easiest of all our Spray & Grow Kits and produce plump, dense, shaggy mushroom clusters. Lion’s mane is highly versatile and can be enjoyed cooked, dried, extracted, or even steeped as a tea! And because it contains brain-supporting compounds, it’s also a popular medicinal mushroom in addition to a delicious fungi fan favorite. (Meatless crab cakes, anyone?)
Our lion’s mane mushroom kits are reliable producers and tend to yield large flushes of beautiful creamy white mushrooms when given adequate humidity. With continued proper care, you may be able to get multiple flushes. (We 100% guarantee your first flush of mushrooms, but hope you’ll try for 2 or 3!)
Note: Lion’s mane can be prone to drying out if the ambient humidity is too low, so we recommend that you water it generously.
That’s not mold, it’s mycelium!
Your kit includes an amended sawdust block fully colonized with mushroom mycelium. It may appear covered with a soft, white, mold-like substance – that’s the mushroom mycelium! It is completely normal. The mycelium of some species is more prominent than others.
The spawn used in our mushroom kits is grown on USDA certified organic grain and made with organic cultures from our own culture bank. Our kits are handmade from a blend of locally sourced, all-natural, organic, and non-GMO woods and supplements from farms and forests in New England and North America.
