Traditionally used in China and Japan as a full-spectrum cognitive booster, Lion's Mane Mushroom (Hericium Erinaceus) is a “smart food” that supports sharpened mental focus, improved memory, and optimal brain & nerve health. Recent research suggests it can strengthen and regrow damaged nerve cells.
Production of lion's mane is similar to other species- grow out the culture on agar, make grain spawn, add it to a bulk substrate, and fruit. As long as you have a healthy culture, you should be able to grow fresh lion's mane anytime you want. Lion's Mane mycelium will last for a long time on a culture plate.

Lions Mane grows best on supplemented hardwood sawdust. Supplement with wheat bran at 10-20%. Higher spawn rates are effective with Lions Mane, increasing the chances that full colonization will take place. Lion's Mane will also grow well on the “master's mix”
