What have I grown?
    #27047344 - 11/19/20 02:24 PM (14 days, 26 minutes ago)

I began cultivating mushrooms this year. My first grow was an attempt to cultivate Reishi from liquid culture to sterilized grain. This was unsuccessful.  Simultaneously, I had a successful attempt growing active Alacabenzi, also from LC to sterilized rye, then a bulk substrate. It fruited.  I was happy.
Thinking I was growing actives, I have been watching blobs form on my inoculated coco coir substrate.  Are these Reishi fruits?

Yup thats reishi. Havnt you ever seen a stump covered with those blobs in the early spring in the woods?

So if I try to grow mold, will my fav mushrooms contaminate my blocks instead??

Thank you.
I made tea yesterday and had determined same.  I am so incredulous because as far as I knew I was using an active LC, not reishi.
I live in South Carolina, I have yet to find Reishi in the wild.

They're out there!..I'm in NC and my reishi culture came from a local hiking park....lion's mane still eludes me tho!

Understandably disappointing if you were expecting something different tho. Still a SUPER easy and important mushroom tho if you still have some of the culture left try some reishi grown in bags, nearly set and forget!

I'm learning to appreciate the value of "set and forget." I will look into growing in a bag.  Thank you for the help.
Not so disappointing as surprising, I had given up on the Reishi but obviously mislabeled my LC.
I will keep my eyes open in the spring for them in the wild.
