Wine Cap Stropharia Garden Starter

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:

  • Straw
  • Wood Chips
  • Compost
  • Leaf Litter
  • Grass Clippings


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!

    Stropharia inoculation

    We received the spawn and inoculated our garden carbon which was mostly machine shredded hemp stalks with the goal of accelerating breakdown thru the winter and reapplying to garden beds in spring

    Not so good so far. I have the medium in a bucket covered with Shagnum moss. I have kept it moist and in 76 degrees. I have quite a good covering of mycelium in there, but no mushrooms. I would love to hear your suggestions. Regards, Thom Deasy

    Looking great so far

    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
