Lions Mane (Hericium Erinaceus)
Our Certified Organic Lions Mane substrate comes in the form of a 10 lb block, fully colonized and ready to fruit. Making 4-5 small X's along one or two sides of the block allow for a dense fruiting to erupt from the tightly secured plastic around the block. PPMs should ideally be kept below 600 and blocks fruited horizontally have the best forming fruit bodies when tipped on their sides to finish fruiting vertically, allowing cascading lions mane teeth to form.
Helpful Cultivation Notes:
- Lions mane will let you know if your room has too much turbulent air flow by turning yellow and drying out fast, so it's best to keep these forming mushrooms out of the direct line of intake or exhaust fans.
- If your fruiting space runs aplenty, lions mane are notorious for producing upwards of half a dozen flushes over a few months without much maintenance to the substrate block itself.
