Lion’s Mane is one of the best-tasting edible mushrooms you can grow, and it offers a bonus in the form of significant nutritional and neuroregenerative benefits. This white, puffy, woodloving mushroom can bear the resemblance of white stalagmites as they hang from a tree trunk or stump. On substrate blocks, they appear in clumps of white puffballs. The mushroom is soft to the touch, and its flesh has a supple texture that, when cooked with butter and onions, has been said to taste like lobster! Lion’s mane can be grown similarly to oyster mushrooms on a wide range of woody substrates, including cardboard, sawdust, aspen shaving and hardwood logs.  Lion’s mane contains beneficial polysaccharides, such as B-glucan, which is also found in the shiitake mushroom. These compounds have been linked to anti-cancer and immune-enhancing properties. Lion’s mane mushrooms have also been used to help repair the digestive tract in cases of gastric ulcers and even esophageal cancer.  The mushroom is a rich source of antioxidants, and it is being studied for neuro-protective and nerve regenerating properties as a possible tool in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. For its relative ease of cultivation, intriguing aesthetic appeal, savory culinary delight and wide-ranging nutritional and medicinal benefits, the Lion’s mane mushroom is one that we recommend every mushroom cultivator experience.

Each item contains one petri dish with a Lion’s mane mushroom culture colonized on MEA substrate.
