Turkey Tail are easy to grow, and one of the most studied of all the medicinal mushrooms. The fruit body is slow to grow, but requires little care. Harvest at its’ prime and make medicinal tea and/or tinctures.
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.
