Grow delicious Wine Cap Stropharia mushrooms in your garden or landscaping!
The Wine Cap (Stropharia rugoso annulata) is a large, beautiful mushroom with meaty, burgundy-colored caps and crisp, thick white stems. Also called the “Garden Giant”, these impressive mushrooms can grow to be up to a foot in diameter! Although they are best to eat when young and tender, larger mushrooms are perfect for barbecuing or roasting whole!
Wine Caps will grow in a wide variety of organic mulch materials:
Detailed instructions are included with your 4lb spawn bag. A Wine Cap mushroom garden can produce reliable crops each spring and summer for up to 3 years. Adding more organic mulch annually will increase the lifespan of your mushroom patch. Once established mycelium from your Wine Cap garden can also be transplanted to fresh mulch in new areas around your garden! You’ll be surrounded by mushrooms every spring!

My spawn arrived a few days after ordering it. Monday I prepared my mushroom bed and spawn. By Thursday curiosity got the best of me and I had to check on its progress. To my surprise I could see the mycelium already starting to spread in the mulch. I was so excited to see its quick progress. Looking forward to the benefits of this awesome mushroom!
I received them, put them in the ground, and am waiting to see. I planted them in Straw with some peat moss casing, I'll let you know when something happens
So far so good. But I don't know if this will work! I bought the spawn as a eco-friendly combo-gift to give my friends and family to help the honeybees. The other item I purchased from another company was a residential "bee hotel" and that can be near the Wine Cap mushrooms where they get the mycelium which helps honeybee immune systems.
