Species Profile

Lion’s Mane (Hericium erinaceus) produces shaggy clusters of mushrooms with a seafood-like texture and flavour.

While slightly more challenging to grow than most variety of oyster mushrooms, they are a reliable producer yielding substantial first and often second flushes.

Lion’s Mane grows best at cooler temperatures (12oC to 18oC) and in high humidity as they are prone to drying out.

Description

Our 1kg bags of grain spawn are grown using mycelium cultures in our lab. We use sterilized organic rye grain sourced from the Canadian prairies through Grainworks. We make your spawn to order.

We incubate your freshly made spawn between 2-4 weeks to ensure it is strong and healthy. We then ship via Canada Post or notify you for pickup.

Use

Grain spawn must be mixed
with a bulk substrate to fruit mushrooms.

We recommend:

Experienced growers: Use this spawn to inoculate sterilized nutrified sawdust in filter bags. under sterile conditions. At a 10% inoculation rate, 1 bag of grain spawn (1kg) will inoculate about 10 to 12 14A Unicorn filter bags of sterilized substrate.

Education

If you are new to growing, we highly recommend you take a workshop or buy a book on mushroom cultivation.
