Difficulty: Intermediate

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). 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!

Great growth!

I was surprised with all the mushrooms and they are excellent! We have enjoyed a few meals with them, and now I hope to get a 2nd flush. It's important to leave them in the bag and follow the directions, which I failed to do. I removed the log from the bad and placed it in a plastic container. It still produced well, but I found that it would have done better if left in the bag.

Done nothing so far

Doing the grocery bag tent method. After 1 week I had water gathering in the bottom of the mushroom brick. I had to punch holes in the bottom and elevate the brick to get it to drain off. Had a unique smell. Continued misting. Lower part of brick is darker color, upper part is still white. Nothing is happening so far. It's been a month.



Thank you for leaving a review! It sounds like you've been over misting and that your block could benefit from more airflow. You are creating a humid environment, not watering the block but this distinction can be tricky! I will email you directly to help further!

Fun and tastes great!

I never knew mushrooms to taste so good! The kit was easy to use and ready to go and fruited immediately.

Both kits I’ve purchased have been highly satisfactory

Great shipping and I’ve already eaten mushrooms from each kit I purchased and am watching my second flush grow!
