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!

Lions mane home growing kit mushrooms.

I imagine it’s going to be good but it has not started yet, but it set up to 20 days but the other two kits that I bought are doing great shiitake and yellow oyster. I’m waiting for the wine cap and the lions mane to start growing but I have faith in them because the other two certainly did well.

My first mushroom kit ever!

So far my experience has been good. I received my kit on May 3rd and today is May 15th. I do have half a dozen starts of Lion Mane mushrooms growing. I used the plastic bag tent for about 5 days. Then just misting twice a day. I’m from the ol days and i remembered my friends putting mushroom kits in their bathtubs to grow, so that’s what i have done. The environment seems good. I also bought some Lion Mane tincture for a back-up. I have noticed a definite health boost from taking it and I am looking forward to cooking the mushrooms for dinner time when they are big enough. I am simply following directions that were sent with my mushroom kit. :)

If I could rate cascades mushrooms with a 10 I would! The lions mane grow kit was super simple to follow instructions and I harvested some of the most delicious mushrooms I’ve ever tasted. And the more I ate the more I felt good. I never knew mushrooms could have such wonderful benefits
