Reishi Mushroom Block
Congratulations on purchasing your very own mushroom grow kit! With this kit you’ll be able to experience the satisfaction of growing mushrooms in your own home. The block you’ve purchased contains a mixture of locally sourced hardwood sawdust (either oak or alder) and wheat bran which has been properly hydrated and sterilized in our autoclaves for 5 hours. The block was then inoculated with spawn (the seed of the mushroom) and allowed to incubate in our warehouse until now. At this point the bag should be sealed and the block should be fully colonized with white mycelium (the body of the organism). With minimal care and attention this block can produce multiple mushrooms. Reishi mushrooms are high in beneficial bio-active compounds and can be used fresh or dehydrated to make tea or dried and ground into powder to add into to meals or beverages. Reishi mushrooms can be grown in a sealed spawn bag to form an anter style body. Alternatively, the bag can be opened and result in a conk shaped mushroom. Either can be used for extracting medicinal properties and it is up to you which you prefer to grow.
Thing you will need
Always Inspect the bag. The bag should be sealed and free of mold or bacteria. Yellow liquid is a normal byproduct of digestion but presence of other colors (green) may indicate a contamination.
