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!

Wine Cap

I may be having problems with this mushroom pack. I did use a 5-gallon bucket, covered it with moist peat moss. There’s lots of white growth but no mushrooms yet. However, the shitake block was harvested about 2 weeks ago - delicious! - and there are new mushrooms as of this morning.

Hello! Thank you for leaving us a review! The Wine Caps will take a 3-4 weeks to establish before growing mushrooms so you're in a good place! Enjoy!

Stropharia order

It was good. It was nice to buy from someone in the Pacific Northwest, since I live on the edge of this bioregion. The order came quickly. Instructions clear. Not that I know anything, but the spawn looked alive and healthy. We’ll see what happens this spring! Thanks for your work. I hope to order Lion’s Mane if the Stropharia goes well.

Most exciting bag of saw dust ever!

Spawning curiosity and 178 questions about the universe and how we are all stardust, this box is a great gift idea for any curious minds with adventurous pallets.

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

Thom’s Stropharia

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
