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 agar wedges are colonized agar pieces cut to fit in a 1.5 mL microcentrifuge tube and are shipped with parafilm. The species is written on the tube.
Agar wedge orders ship Thursdays only.

It's an agar wedge!

It's agar. It's mycelium. It grows into more mycelium when placed upon more agar. It works, lol.
Granted, I've never bought agar wedges before, so maybe they all look like this, but I was a little surprised to see what looked like only a barely visible, faint dusting of white on the wedge...just thought that might be relevant to more experienced buyers. Either way, it's happily growing, and I'm still completely satisfied. Will totally purchase from Mushie Man again :)
