MONKEY'S HEAD - HERICIUM ERINACEUS - SPAWN FOR ORGANIC / BIO CULTIVATION ON Wood logs

Syn.: Yamabusitake (jap.: mountain hidden mushroom), Pom-Pom blanc, hóu tóu gu (chin.: monkey's head), nam dau khi, Norugongdengi-beoseot (vietnam.: deertail mushroom)

Hericium erinaceus is an edible mushroom and medicinal mushroom in the tooth fungus group. It can be identified by its tendency to grow all the spines out from one group (rather than branches), long spines and its appearance on hardwoods. Although it is growing in Europe, it is not well known. For its unique delicious taste and the very decorative coral-like look the lion´s mane mushroom gets more and more a sought component of nouvelle cuisine. Out in the nature, Hericium erinaceus can be found in deciduous forests of Europe, North America and Asia (in particular in China and Japan).

Monkey´s Heas - Hericium erinaceus - Mushroom spawn for wood logs
Certified for organic mushroom cultivation according to Regulation EC 834/2007 and 889/2008
(Organic control station: AT-BIO-701, Biko Tyrol)
1 autoclave bag approx. 3 kg - 6 liter
Suitable for inoculation of 25 to 30 linear meters of wood. 

You receieve ready colonized mushroom spawn made from organic raw material (wood, rye bran from organic farming) for inoculation of wood logs.

Suitable woods are poplar, oak, alder, aspen, maple, birch, ash, beech, willow or elm.
Fruitin season for this strain is summer.

For quantities of 10 or more logs inoculation with sawdust spawn is usually more efficient than working with dowels. Sawdust is a byproduct and more cost efficient and environmentaly sustainable than dowels that have to be produced. Because of this large quantities of spawn can be produced for a lower price. Sawdust spawn is suitable for the borehole inoculation method and the cutting inoculation method. Expected harvest yield is up to 10 % of the fresh woods weight divided on several flushes over 3 to 5 years.

For the borehole-method we recommend the usage of a mushroom drill, and an inoculation stick or a hand inoculator.
Larger quantities for commercial mushroom growing on request.
