Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum) produces beautiful, waxy, reddish-brown, shelf-like fruiting bodies that are highly prized for their medicinal properties. Due to its bitter flavor and tough texture, it is not recommended for culinary use. However, it is ideal for drying and making powders, teas, and stocks. It can also be extracted and make into tincture. Reishi is ideal for beginners as is do not require a humidified fruiting chamber. This is because it spends the entire growth cycle inside the bag.
Reishi grain spawn can be used for indoor production using sawdust-based sterile substrate.
Do not use grain spawn for log inoculation.
Reishi mushroom grain spawn can be mixed into sterilized hardwood sawdust to create reishi substrate blocks.
