Shiitake Lentinula edodes, are a delicious edible mushroom long revered in Asia. Shiitake are a bit finicky to get to fruit, but the results are rewarding! For complete beginners we recommend starting with an Oyster or Lion’s Mane mushroom grow kit.
Kits may be grown indoors, and may also be fruited outdoors during the spring and fall. A humid environment is important to mushroom formation, and can be created by misting water from a spray bottle into a humidity tent.
All natural ingredients. Your kit contains a pure mushroom culture grown on hardwood sawdust and Canadian wheat bran. No chemical fertilizers, nor pesticides, used.
Kit size ~1.6kg (3.5lb) (75% larger than most kits you will find in Canada – which means more mushrooms for a competitive price)
**Your mushroom kit can also be expanded to make more mushroom kits, or used as sawdust spawn to inoculate logs!
