Description: Grow your own Lion’s Mane Mushroom recipe with our 10cc liquid culture syringe. The Lion’s Mane is a member of the unusual teethed fungi, which form tooth-like structures instead of gills. The mature mushrooms look like pink tinted-white pom-poms.
This is an aggressive species that spontaneously form primordia on malt agar and sawdust substrates but may be slow to colonize grain spawn. The lion’s mane mushroom recipe develops quickly once initiated and can form from tiny primordia to a large, ready-to-harvest mushroom in one week or less.
