Reishi log with pics **completed**
    #1600202 - 06/02/03 02:32 AM (13 years, 6 months ago)

(Some of these pic i have already posted, but to make the log complete i reposted them).

Substrate consisted of:

2 kg soaked beech chips
500 gr boiled grass seed
100 gr gypsum
total weight per bag = 2,6 kg

These bags were inoculated with liquid mycelium and incubated for 3 weeks until they were completely colonised (at 25oC).

They were the top of the bags was taken of to expose the top surface of the substrate.

The fruiting bin consisted of a warmed (fish tank heater) bin with wet vermiculite. Temperature was kept at 28oC.

After one week small bumps arose.



2 weeks



3 weeks









At 4 weeks the white points of growth turned red. Now i increased fresh air supply to the bin to induce cap formation.





6 weeks, caps are clearly developing



7 weeks



8 weeks, heavily sporulating and ready for harvest







I think this is truly the weirdest (and one of the most beautiful) mushroom i have ever grown!

Snobrdr311:
They are used for medicinal purposes.
You know, natural remedies in lieu of pharmaceuticals.

Una:
Indeed, reishi is a strange and beautiful mushroom! I appreciate your work... you always come out with great pictures and fruits!

How beautiful!

Some questions:

- soaked beech chips? is that some kind of wood chips?

- gypsum, what is that?

- grass seed, will it do with any seed? (hempseeds/popcorn/rice/wheat?)

And, how many grams did you harvest?
- How do you eat reishi? Every day or just at special occations (like when you?re sick or something).

- How many grams do you eat per day?

A lot of questions, but I don't know much about reishi :smile:

thanks in advance!

From FP :

Ganoderma lucidum
Reishi or Ling Chi
"Mushroom of Immortality"
by Paul Stamets

Range: Distributed throughout the southern United States, Japan, Korea and vast region of China. Ganodermas seem ubiquitous, thriving wherever trees grow. They often have a shiny, lacquered surface which is especially shiny when wet.

Medicinal Properties: Anti-arthritic, increases absorption of oxygen, increases stamina, anti-tumor, and recent research in Seoul by Dr. Byong Kak Kim (college of Pharmacy, Seoul National University) shows that extracts of this mushroom prevents the death of lymphocytes from HIV and inhibits the replication of this virus. Triterpenoids?steroid-like compounds?have also been detected in extracts of this mushroom. Ganoderma lucidum has also shown promise in fighting Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS).

Method of Preparation: Dried, powdered and used in tea form, usually 2-5 grams per serving, two to three times per day. (Do not drink more than two cups 4 hours or sooner prior to desired sleep time as they seem to have a stimulating effect.)

Comments: Himalayan guides use this mushroom to combat altitude sickness. Sages believed the mind and body were fortified with regular ingestions of this mushroom, bestowing the name "Mushroom of Immortality". For nearly two thousand years, Ganoderma lucidum has been the object of adulation, and is reflected in hundreds of paintings. Buddhists had a particular affection for Ling Chi, embellishing their temples with various forms of this highly variable fungus.

I cultivate many varieties of Ganoderma lucidum. Their beauty and forms are timeless, striking a deep chord in many who are awestruck by the fruitings in my growing rooms. They can be grown indoors or outdoors, and generally prefer warm, sub-tropical climates. They are primarily hardwood saprophytes. Some species grow on conifers. Although Ganoderma lucidum is the most well known, many other relatives have medicinal properties, but they are less studied.

As a martial artist, I find that this mushroom increases endurance, especially respiration, and relieves pain in the joints. Many people suffering from arthritis have been emphatic in their belief this mushroom helps. A study at the Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, Texas found that Ganoderma lucidum extracts favorably compared to the commonly prescribed drugs for alleviating arthritis. But the added advantage with this mushroom was that there were no side effects, while the associated side effects from prescription drugs is a well known problem.

yeah they say reishi's twiddle your immune system to thinking your healthy but that could be a rumor..heheh... but I am curious if you took any prints from the reishi? and how did you prepare this log? I am interested in doing reishi and I have oak around where I live (reishi likes oak right?)...but would fresh wood or old wood be good?

From what they've posted, it doesn't look like Reishi is a placebo.. Seems like it actually works! :smile:

Awesome pictures, that's amazing.
