Growing Instructions:   (Instructions will also be included with your purchase.)

When you receive your Lions Mane grow kit place the block inside the humidity tent that is provided in an area with a temperature between 55 and 65 degrees, close the top with a cloths pin, and punch a dozen or so small holes in the humidity tent. Mist inside the humidity tent lightly twice daily. Within a week you should begin to see mushrooms forming from the holes in the side of the bag. We recommend pushing toothpics, or something similar, part way into the block near the forming mushrooms to keep the humidity tent from contacting the mushrooms. Continue the misting process, and within 2 weeks the mushrooms will be ready to pick. You should pick them when the spines begin to noticeably elongate. Once harvested place the block back within the humidity tent and mist occasionally. Soon you will begin to see new mushrooms forming. You may repeat this process until the block ceases production (usually 5 or 6 times). When the block expires we recommend stripping the plasic from the sawdust block and burying it in mulch and watering it occasionally. You may get more mushrooms over time this way. Another option is to use the sawdust block to inoculate your own lions mane mushroom logs. This is done by cutting your own 4 to 10 inch by 4 foot hardwood logs (preferably in the late winter or early spring),drilling holes every 4 to 6 inches and plugging them with the sawdust from your expired block. After 6 months to 1 year of incubation the logs are dunked for 24 hrs and placed in a shady location where they will fruit. Enjoy you’re mushrooms!
