Red reishi (Ganoderma lucidum) is an edible medicinal mushroom known as “Ling Zhi” in China and “Reishi” or “Manetake” in Japan. Our reishi mushroom kits are one of the easiest of all of our fruiting block kits, as they are very reliable producers and require next to no upkeep. That’s because they can live their entire life-cycle within their unopened bag.
Reishi take their time and grow very slowly. Depending on your needs, you can harvest your kit early when the mushrooms resemble antlers and are only a few inches tall. Or, you can allow the mushrooms several more months in the bag to form more interesting growth patterns. You can also try for mature mushroom caps, which requires more supervision as well as opening the bag (which is described in the directions section below). This is a more challenging method, but can be very rewarding for those who have some prior experience with reishi kits.
Our mushroom fruiting block kits are fully colonized and ready to grow.
