Grifola frondosa

Hen of the Woods; HOTW. Also known as Maitake.

Grows slowly and best at 50-65°F. Intermediate difficulty. Indoor HOTW grows are rewarding because of the slight difficulty as well as the delicious mushrooms that are free from forest floor litter and bugs that are common in outdoor foraged specimens.

All gourmet liquid cultures (LCs) are provided with a 16g needle (in the manufacturer’s packaging) and come in 10 mL capped syringes. They will be labelled on the plunger and are grown in a 2% malt extract solution. Shake well before use.

First time on Hen of The Woods

But definitely not my first time ordering from MMM so I have high confidence in the outcome, along with several recipes waiting in the wings.

MMM always ships quickly and packs orders safely.

Tested this culture on (3) new agar dishes. All (3) dishes were clean from contamination!

My first time toying with HOTW. The mycelium growth seems to be a little different in progression, HOWEVER, it’s strong mycelium that is filling in.

Very Happy! Gourmet culture syringe is absolutely loaded with mycelium.

HOTW (Maitake)

Purchased Hen of the Woods (HOTW) Liquid Culture (LC) via Klarna. It was super easy and fast. Although I didn’t need to, I ended up splitting my total up making payments over a few months. I thought that was cool. Nevertheless, upon arrival of my LC syringe, I dosed my agar. Boom! Within a couple of days I could immediately see this was legit. I now have multiple grain jars spawning like crazy. Will definitely order again, among other gourmet LC!
