Hericium erinacius

This culture of lion’s mane is able to fruit at higher temperatures than the standard lion’s mane culture we have available. A great option for locations that are hot, or as a seasonal culture to run during summer. This culture can fruit into the 80’s (°F) and down to 55-60°F like the standard Lion’s Mane.

Instructions for use:

This information is specific to Lion’s Mane (High Temperature Tolerant).

  1. Check your block upon arrival to make sure there are no tears or signs of mold from shipping. If the block has broken into pieces during shipping, gently press the block together and let sit 3-5 days undisturbed before moving to step 2.
    Lion’s mane has notoriously thin and wispy mycelium, if the block appears uncolonized let it sit 2-4 days and it should begin to whiten.
  2. Slice a 1-2″ slit into the bag or a 1″ “X” into the side of the block. Be careful not to cut into the block itself and just cut the plastic. If there are mushroom pins, consider creating the opening around a group of pins. See example photo below.
  3. Fold down the top of the bag and deflate the block, tape the top down so that there is minimal room between the block and plastic except where the cut was made.
  4. Place the Ready-to-Fruit block in the most humid part of your home (not in direct sunlight) or in a grow chamber or grow tent. The kitchen is a good household place in lieu of a dedicated fruiting chamber. Lion’s Mane (High Temperature Tolerant) fruits best between 60-85°F.
    Search online for easy to make fruiting chambers: monotubs, shot gun fruiting chambers (SGFCs) and tents with foggers/humidifiers are all great options and will likely increase success in fruiting and producing healthy fruits. Even a trash bag with plenty of holes can be used to increase humidity! If the Lion’s Mane produced in a fruiting chamber have large stems and long thin teeth, more air exchange is needed.
  5. 2X daily (or more if your environment is dry) spritz the plastic with distilled/filtered water where the cut was made and look for mushroom “pins”. These are the start of mushrooms! Pins should take ~1-2 weeks to develop from the time of opening the bag.
  6. Continue to mist the fruits and plastic while they grow. Lion’s Mane are usually ready to harvest ~7-14 days after pins form and should be harvested before the teeth elongate too much and produce spores for tastiest results.
  7. Cut the mushroom cluster from the block and enjoy for your next meal!
  8. Soak the block in fresh distilled/filtered water for 1-6 hours while inside the bag (pour into the opening) and then drain from the bag.
  9. Put block back into fruiting conditions, you should get at least 1 more “flush” of mushrooms from the block. If pins do not form at the cut site, consider opening the plastic at the site of the largest set of pins for subsequent flushes and sealing the original site with tape.

*CAUTIONS AND CONSIDERATIONS:

IF YOU PLAN ON CONSUMING YOUR HOME-GROWN MUSHROOMS MAKE SURE TO COOK THEM THOROUGHLY. IF IT IS YOUR FIRST TIME EATING THIS SPECIES, IT IS BEST TO START WITH A SMALL AMOUNT TO SEE HOW YOUR BODY RESPONDS!

MUSHROOMS PRODUCE SPORES AS THEY DEVELOP. THIS IS A NATURAL MEANS OF REPRODUCTION FOR THE FUNGUS. THEY USUALLY APPEAR AS A DUSTY SURFACE ON YOUR GROW KIT BENEATH THE MUSHROOM CAPS. PEOPLE WITH ALLERGIES OR COMPROMISED IMMUNE SYSTEMS MAY WANT TO CONSIDER PUTTING FRUITING MUSHROOM KITS OUTDOORS OR IN A WELL-VENTILATED AREA AS AIRBORNE SPORES SOMETIMES CAUSE RESPIRATORY IRRITATION. SPORES MAY ALSO CAUSE IRRITATION FOR SOME NON-ALLERGIC OR IMMUNE COMPROMISED MUSHROOM GROWERS, THOUGH THIS IS RARE. HARVESTING MUSHROOMS WHILE STILL IN THEIR YOUNGER GROWTH STAGES WILL REDUCE THE OVERALL SPORE LOAD.

Huge, dense fruits!

Couldn’t be happier! I just pulled on the bag to put air in and set it in my living room under my plant’s grow lights. Ambient room temp of about 67 degrees, LED lights plus natural light. When the fruit needed more moisture I just cut the very top off and used a mixture of tap water and 3% hydrogen peroxide (1:1) to mist three or four times a day.

Lion's Mane block arrived quickly and was already fruiting when I got it, which I consider a plus. So far it's given some sizeable fruits, even with how badly I botched opening it.

Amazing value and delivery

Can't beat this vendor. There was no wait on this order and it arrived two days early than expected. This is my second or third purchase, and everything is as expected. The new labeling on the spore syringes is great. Next purchase will be some agar cultures.

Perfect service, prompt delivery, great product, amazing value

Block came with only around 40% of the substrate colonized but that’s perfectly okay. Since I first received the block two weeks ago the substrate is almost 100% colonized and ready to fruit some beautiful lions mane. No contamination and for 20 bucks, I’m more than happy with the amount of fruiting bodies I should be able to get out of this lions mane block. Thank you.

Very Pleased

Received my product sooner than expected. Thanks to local mail delivery issues, had to wait a little longer to get started, but my block is starting to fruit. I am excited to watch the Lion's Mane grow as this is my first experience with this mushroom.
