REISHI FRUITING KIT
Also known as the “Mushroom of Immortality” or Ling-Chi, some Reishi mushrooms native to temperate climates are the prettiest we have found. This mushroom is beautifully lacquered with brilliant yellow new growth and white tips, like the sun setting perfectly; this mushroom is living art. A potent medicinal mushroom, Reishi's powers range from sugar regulation for diabetics to cancer-fighting properties.
This strain is also a potent natural antibiotic, exhibiting inhibition against Strep and Staph, making it useful for throat sprays and soaps or cosmetics. Outdoors this mushroom grows on oak, cherry, and maple logs, half-buried the best, but can adapt to other hardwoods. We also fruit this one indoors very easily on sterilized sawdust, fruiting in 14-21 days! This mushroom is corky and bitter, so we prefer to dry them fresh and grind them up in a blender to make a fluffy fiber, then make extracts.
Edibility and taste: Bitter, Corky texture
Grows on: Hardwood logs and sawdust: oak, elm, maple, sycamore, beech, plum, peach, mimosa
Fruiting Temps: 60-85F
