Lion's Mane (hericium erinaceus) are teethed fungi from the genus Hericium and are one of the most delicious mushrooms that can be cultivated. This mushroom greatly resembles the taste of lobster, especially when cooked with a little butter, onions and garlic. This is also a great mushroom for absorbing the flavors of other ingredients cooked with it. Lion’s mane mushrooms can be grown easily and do best on sterilized sawdust supplemented with rice bran for indoors. Hardwood and Douglas fir logs and stumps for outdoors. The Lion's Mane mushroom grows very easily indoors. This is an easy mushroom to grow indoors in the summer with the A/C on a constant 79F and this fungi thrives at this constant temperature. Substrate of choice is sterilized BBQ alder pellets subplimented with organic bran. This mushroom is somewhat delicate and can bruise easily so it should be handled gently until ready to harvest and cook. Unfortunately it’s rare to find this mushroom in grocer stores so not many people have been lucky enough to taste it. Once you grow it yourself and taste it chances are it will become one of your favorites like it is mine.

I'm very impressed with the colonization of my rye grain spawn bags with this lions mane culture! I'm using them for an outdoor grow in a bucket on wood chips, Thank you for the quality of your spores!

Can i eat lions mane everyday? or can i get sick eating too much? Thanks!!

reply from The Hawk: You are blessed if you can eat them everyday :) It's not like we can go to the store and buy these any time we want. These mushrooms are super delicious.
I've never heard of anyone getting sick from eating to many lions mane mushrooms :)

Got 2 10ml syringes. Have the first cooking on agar now. Even without my extra eyes (glasses) I could see a really good amount of spore material in the syringes. Wouldn't hesitate to order from these folks again. Shipping was quick and the warmer was still going when I got the package.

I just got a 10cc syringe of spores, any help to grow them would be appreciated. I'd like to try jars!
From the Hawk: Lions mane is very easy to do indoors in jars. Use BBQ wood pellets like alder is a great choice for Lions Mane.

Lions Mane taste like blue crabs, so tasty. Very easy to grow, indoors or outside. They fruit in such a wide temperature range. I prefer growing in jars over bags because I get bigger mushrooms. You're cultures worked perfect!
