Lion's Mane Growing Tips

Please follow the basic growing instructions found on our FAQ.



SCIENTIFIC NAME: Hericium Erinaceus

DO NOT cut off the top of the bag: cut a small X on the side of the bag near visible mycelium. A large fruiting area may cause it to produce smaller fruits;  a smaller fruiting area will ensure fewer but larger fruit.


DON'T forget: Lion's Mane grow kits are very sensitive to their environment


DO allow your Lion's substrate to completely colonize before fruiting to avoid premature fruiting


DO NOT expose grow kit to heavy light


DO NOT spray directly or aggressively as Lion's Mane mycelium may bruise easily; use a mister or spray bottle on mist setting
