Reishi - Ganoderma lucidum - SPAWN FOR ORGANIC / BIO CULTIVATION on Wood logs

Syn.: Ling Zhi/Chi, Jong Si/ryongji, Mannentake, The Panacea Polypore

The Reishi China Strain was especially developed for indoor cultivation with mycelium bags. It is predestined for production of the antler form when growing in the closed filter-bag. The main advantage of this method is a very low risk of contamination and a low rate of crop failure but growing in the bag may bring a lower harvest yield in comparison with cultivation in open bags.

The chinese name of this fungus is Ling Zhi, in Japan it is called Reishi. Ganoderma lucidum has been used as medicine for more than 4000 years. It is traditionally a symbol of good health, physical and mental recovery, long life, high sexual activity, wisdom and fortune. Reishi is rich in micronutrients such as iron, magnesium, copper, potassium, zinc, manganese and germanium. The most valuable compounds of Ling Zhi are polysaccharides and triterpenes such as ganodermic acid, ganolucid acid or lucidemic acid.

The Ganoderma lucidum is a saprophyte, which prefers growing on hardwood such as oak-trees, birch-trees, beech-trees and alder-trees. He prefers warm oak-woods, copper beech-trees but also other hardwood-meadows. He can also be found on hedges, parks and waysides, if the conditions are given.

Production time: Spawn is made fresh after ordering, production time 3 to 6 weeks.

Reishi - Ganoderma lucidum - Mushroom spawn for wood logs
Certified for organic mushroom cultivation
(Organic control station: AT-BIO-301, Austria Bio Garantie)
1 autoclave bag approx. 3 kg - 6 liter
Suitable for inoculation of 25 to 30 linear meters of wood.

You receive ready colonized mushroom spawn made from organic raw material (wood, rye bran from organic farming) for inoculation of wood logs. Suitable woods are Hardwood, most suitable: oak, beech, birch or alder.
Fruiting season for this strain is late autumn.

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.
