Hericium coralloides (coral tooth) mushrooms

September 30, 2012 | Mushroom Cultivation, Mushrooms | 8 comments | Author:

Edible, native and delicious. Will’s been growing these beauties in his home mushroom cultivation setup on blocks of grain spawn.

Like many other mushrooms, once you know how, these beautiful fungi can be cloned and propagated at home (if you have a reliable source). After which point you can re-produce them indefinitely.

Well hello, Hericium!

If you’d like to learn the art of how to clone and cultivate mushrooms of many different types, for both inside and outside mushroom growing, we’re running another 2-day workshop  at Milkwood Farm next month, which will be fantastic:

Mushroom Cultivation: 13-14 Oct, Milkwood Farm

After that we’ll be hopefully starting up some proper (seasonal) mushroom cultivation at Milkwood Farm. Can’t wait!

    Very cool. I didn’t know this was a cultivated species. A few years ago I started harvesting Hericium in N. California where I grew up. Typically finding them on decomposing Oak trees. Here are photos of two varieties: http://anthropogen.com/?s=hericium

    Yum! I will have to learn. I love mushies and as a semi-veggie sustainability type it makes sense to grow my own. Any ideas what varieties do well in Hobart?
