This species generates beautiful, large red caps with long stems. A high yield can be harvested from this mushroom. It's medicinal properties are it's key features. Mushroom bodies may last up to 7 days after harvest in the fridge. Usually they are dried to prolong shelf life to over a year (must be stored in a dry container).
Our grain formula contains the optimum levels of nitrogen required for quick growth of mycelium as well as a high number of inoculation points. Weights of bags are approximated.
We aim to have all our grain spawn ready to dispatch whenever there is an order, but because it is a live mycelium sometimes dispatch may take longer. We will get in touch if this is the case.
Note: We break all of our grain spawn before shipping for your convenience. The grain is fully colonised and can be used as soon as you receive it. The described information has been tested thoroughly and the optimum conditions have been listed. Because of this, results may vary if the appropriate conditions are not met.
Reishi Grain Spawn
Species: Ganoderma lucidum
Recommended substrate: 80% Hardwood, 20% Bran or similar
Fruiting duration: 10-12 weeks
Yield: Approx. 150-200g of fresh mushrooms per kg of our recommended wet substrate (1st flush); pre-inoculation
Inoculation % of wet substrate: 2-10%; higher inoculation % leads to a shorter incubation period. Do not exceed 10%.
