REISHI MUSHROOM CULTIVATION
Ganoderma lucidum: Beautiful, waxy, reddish-brown shelf-like fruit bodies are a highly prized immune-boosting medicinal used to treat a long list of ailments.
Grain Spawn (Ganoderma lucidumonly)- Indoor only!The indoor method of growing reishi takes basic laboratory/clean space infrastructure, though they are a great mushroom for indoor commercial cultivation for beginner growers. They do not require humidified fruiting rooms as they can grow entirely inside their bag.
Growing Reishi indoors is great for beginner indoor mushroom growing operations as you do not need to grow them in humidified fruiting chambers, though indoor cultivation requires much more infrastructure and specialized knowledge for substrate preparation.
Cooking: Not for culinary use but recommended for teas and tinctures. To make a tea, break Reishi into pieces and simmer in water for two hours.
Properties: Known commonly as the 'Mushroom of Immortality' in Chinese, Reishi is a highly esteemed medicinal mushroom thought to promote longevity and overall health. Studied most for its ability to boost the immune system, Reishi extracts stimulate T-cell action, Natural Killer cell activity, and Dendritic cell maturation (Gao, 2004). Other pharmacological effects of Reishi extract include the following: anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antiviral, reduces blood pressure, lowers cholesterol levels, promotes anti-tumor activity, and acts as a central depressant to relax muscles (Hobbs, 1995; Gao et al., 20014).
