Grow your own lion’s mane mushrooms at home with the Lion’s Mane Grow Kit!
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 make 4-6 holes in the substrate bag and mist regularly (2-3 times per day). 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.

It's been 1 month now and it still looks like the day I received it. I still mist it every day to no avail. $30.00 is a lot to pay for no results. This is not my first mushroom kit, but I don't know why I keep buying them. No stars this time.
Thank you for leaving a review! From our emails, it appeared that the original humidity tent was too fitted and didn't allow for oxygen to enter the growing environment or room for the mushrooms to grow. Humidity and airflow/air exchange are key. Let's keep working together to turn your experience around! I have emailed you to help further.
It's growing..we will do our first harvest soon... Curious if we can put the mycyllium into new sterrilized sawdust and keep it going... Thanks for all you do...I'm an avid consumer of your shitakes at the Bellingham coop...
Thank you for leaving a review! If you sterilize your substrate you can use your block as seed and keep it going! Email us if you still have questions.
There was about an inch and a half of fruiting bodies on one side of the block when I received it. I took them off, dried and powdered them. The block then fruited again with a beautifully toothed round fruit. I did a tasting with friends of three different varieties of lions mane mushrooms. Yours has the best texture, dense meaty, body and a milder flavor. I loved it and order another one.
Sadly I took the block out of the bag and put them in another container and then made a tent with plastic. They did begin to emerge but I had a very hard time keeping them moist despite spraying them multiple times a day and they eventually dried out and turned brown. The block also developed a green mold. I do live in Sudden Valley which is very damp so I think I was more cautious about spraying especially after the green mold appeared. I would love to try again at some point however!
My experience has been less than desirable; which would've probably been improved by purchasing this grow kit in the spring or summer when the air is a lot more humid. I tried using a humidifier, misting multiple times a day, modifying the grown container to maximize a high moisture environment, etc. Only a single flowering head grew from the back while three other flowering heads extended slightly from the bag, then grew brown (low moisture) and failed to continue growing. Given the use of another plastic bag to grow the mushrooms, I doubt I'll purchase grow kits in the future.
Thank you for your feedback! Since you were both misting and using a humidifier, I don't think humidity is the issue. It's more likely that it was due to a lack of oxygen/air exchange. Lion's Mane kits are sensitive to being over misted and need good air flow to grow. Email us so we can talk more about your growing environment! We are here to help!
