Our mushroom fruiting blocks are fully colonized and ready to grow. Each block weighs  ~5lbs.

Difficulty: Beginner

Lion’s Mane is very reliable producers and our blocks are excellent for beginners and even experts looking to get into farmers markets and or  fresh mushrooms for a restaurant or home and need bulk grow blocks that will produce pounds of mushrooms with multiple flushes. 

Directions:

Your fruiting block is a perfect blend of hardwood and soy hulls that has been colonized by mushroom mycelium. Mushrooms need high humidity and ventilation to survive and thrive, so proper care is important. 

1. Leave the block in the bag. To activate your block take a sharp knife or blade and make a 4-5 inch cut along the front and center part of the block on the side where the filter patch is, then gently squeeze out any remaining air and fold the filter flap to the back side of the block tucking it under the bottom of the bag.

2. Place your sliced bag in the most humid part of your home, usually near a sink or washroom or in a humidity-controlled grow chamber. Make sure it is kept away from direct sunlight, and keep it well hydrated. Do this by spraying the outside of your block, over the sliced area, with water at least 2-3 times per day. 

3. If your home is very dry, and you do not have a humidity-controlled grow chamber, you will need to make a humidity tent to place over the over fruiting block to be successful . To do this, find a loose-fitting plastic bag and make 10-15 butter knife size holes {½’’)  Then place it over the fruiting block keeping it in the original bag. Once you’ve made the humidity tent, be sure to spray the inside of the bag once per day.

4. Within 1-2 weeks of first slicing open your fruiting block bag, the mushrooms will sense the oxygen in the air and begin to produce mushroom “pins,” or little baby mushrooms. When you spot your first mushroom pins, keep a close eye on them. After 5 to 10 days of pin formation, your mushrooms should be ready to harvest. 

5. Harvest your mushrooms when they resemble the mushrooms in the photographs, before the caps flatten out and become concave. 

You can get a second flush but it will be smaller than the first harvest. Before trying for another flush,  let it rest for 4-5 days then soak it in cold water for 30 minutes, and re-start the process.

Properties

Lions Mane is a highly regarded edible mushroom. Even so, it may be better known for its medicinal properties. It is being currently researched for its effects on neurological health, Alzheimer's disease, and dementia. It has a feel comparable to fresh crab meat when ripped apart. Crab meat can be replaced in a crab cake recipe for a delicious vegan twist on popular Maryland dish. Don’t forget the old bay!

IMPORTANT: Cautions & Considerations 

If you’re going to consume home-grown mushrooms, make sure to cook your fresh mushrooms thoroughly with heat. If it is your first time eating this species, it is best to start with a small amount to check for allergies, even if cooked. 

Mushrooms grow spores as they develop. This is a natural means of reproduction. This is when people with allergies or compromised immune systems may want to consider putting fruiting mushroom kits outdoors or in a well-ventilated area. Spores in mushrooms sometimes cause respiratory irritation. In rare cases, spores may also cause irritation for some non-allergic or non-immunocompromised mushroom growers. If you are one of them, it is recommended to reduce the overall spore load by harvesting mushrooms while they are still in their younger growth stages.
