Difficulty: Intermediate

Lion's Mane Mushroom (Hericium erinaceus) is a fairly common wood decomposing mushroom that can be found throughout the Northern Hemisphere in hardwood forests. It is a choice edible/medicinal mushroom that is grown commercially world wide. This kit is a colony of Lion's Mane Mushroom mycelium (the white thread-like fungus) growing on sterilized sawdust.

To get mushrooms to start growing you will need to cut an X where we have marked in the substrate bag and mist regularly (2-3 times per day). Lion's Mane kits are shipped in a black cultivation bags. Mushrooms will form over the next 1-2 weeks. When the brain-like mushroom fruiting bodies get large (up to fist-sized) and the spines are distinct and elongated, they are ready to pick and eat. Enjoy!


Detailed instructions for your using your mushroom growing kit and creating the proper habitat are included. When growing Lion's Mane and other intermediate varieties we encourage everyone to build a grow chamber. Check out our blog for more details!

Growth Has Started

We have growth but it’s slower than the oysters we got. Haven’t gotten anything from it yet, I will follow up when we have harvested.

Within one week of receiving my kit, my first harvest produced a wet weight of 1pd of Lions mane mushrooms.

I followed the instructions and the mushrooms got too damp and rotted. Customer service suggested I mist less and give the block more airflow, but this didn't help.
