Fruiting Containers:

Using large autoclavable filter patch grow bags to form a fruiting block. Once total colonization is achieved, fruit by slicing little “x’s” in the bag at the place of primordia, or where the Lion’s Mane starts to fruit on its own. Do not cut off the top of the bag. More holes will produce more fruits that are smaller, whereas fewer holes will produce fewer fruits that are larger. Distributor of Lion’s Mane Grain Spawn online.
