Reishi mushrooms have been use for thousands of years for medicinal purposes, especially in Asian cultures. This is not a gourmet mushroom, but rather it's used in teas and capsule form as well as extracts. It's a beautiful mushroom that grows in a variety of shapes and sizes and is quite spectacular to watch grow. Reishi mushrooms are polypore mushrooms of the genus Ganoderma. This Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum) mushrooms goes under many names in various cultures. This mushroom is also depicted in artwork in Asian cultures for many centuries. This mushroom is widely spread throughout the world from the Amazon in South America, the southern regions of North America and through out Asia. It's more commonly found in subtropical regions. In nature this mushroom grows on oak and other hardwoods. For cultivating reishi mushrooms, they can also be grown on a variety of conifer and hardwood sawdust mixtures and wood chips. Once the mushroom starts to form, depending how it is grow, it will either take on and antler appearance, or large clam shell appearance called conks. These mushrooms form very slowly over a 50 day period and are great family projects as they are slow and beautiful to watch develop. Children really enjoy seeing reishi mushrooms grow and this is a great mushroom to introduce children to the hobby of fungi growing. These can be grown easily around the house in bottles such as 2 liter soda bottles.

Awesome. Very happy. Products came perfectly viable in 3 days of order a few days after christmas while weather was in the 20's. Expedient and excellent customer service, they were happy to go back twice to fix errors that I had made.
I've been a long time customer of earth's tongue, but lack of stock this winter forced me to find a new source for spores and I am so stoked that mushrooms.com was there for me.
Thanks for what you guys do, to the rest: enjoy!
