The Reishi mushroom is a beautiful and highly prized medicinal mushroom.
Known in China as the 'mushroom of immortality' Reishi has a host of medicinal benefits.
It's stunning red, yellow and white fruitbodies are amazing to watch as they develop. You can grow them in long 'antler' type formation under high Co2 conditions inside the grow bag, or in a shelf or conk like formation when allowed to grow outside the bag.
This spawn pack includes:
- 2.8kg of quality Reishi mushroom grain spawn
- 20 x Mushroom cultivation bags (can hold 1.5-2 kg substrate per bag)
Difficulty: Easy - Medium
Reishi mycelium is aggressive and fast growing, making it relatively easy for cultivators to grow.
The fruiting phase takes little longer than most mushrooms - often 30 days or more from seeing small pins form, to harvesting fully mature mushrooms.
