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: They prefer hardwood chips, sawdust and straw but you can also mix in leaf litter and grass clippings.



Detailed instructions are included with your 4lb spawn bag. One bag can inoculate a 4ft X 4ft patch. 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!

Outstanding spawn.

Took a while but now having a huge flush of stropharia. Thanks and continue mushing on...

I mixed the spawn with straw and am keeping it moist. I haven’t seem anything yet, but I’m hopeful.


Hello! Check for mycelium and if you some then you have successfully inoculated your patch! Based on your order date I would expect mushrooms by late summer at the latest. Happy growing!

Great addition to my garden

The mushrooms were applied to straw substrate last fall and have now fruited non stop over the last few months. I was very excited to seem so many more edible options growing in my garden with little to no effort.

WOW! They just keep coming!

I was a bit concerned with using chlorinated city water that it would kill the mycelium but nope. I am getting massive flushes of Wine Caps from a bed of wood chips. WOW! I used the chips that I had from Chinese Elm trees that we cut down. I put the chips on top of cardboard in an 8' X 2' raised bed and within about a month BAM! they just keep coming. :) Excellent sawdust inoculated spawn.
