Reishi Preparation
    #3512188 - 12/17/04 04:15 AM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Well my Reishi culture has finally broken through in two places in my bag (VERY excited), but I was looking up more information about Reishi (granted I've looked most sites over dozens of times, but I was hopeful to find missed information). I read something on a Reishi vendor's site saying that only the shelves that form on the tops of the mushrooms are ground up for medicinal purposes. The site didn't seem very credible, so I decided I'd post here to find out about it. Does anyone know anything about this? What would I do with the "antler" portion of the mushroom, then? It'd be a shame to discard it. Wouldn't the medicinal properties be distributed equally throughout the mushroom, just like cubes and psychoactive chemicals in them?

I can't see why antlers and conks would have different compositions. There may be an aesthetic or 'standard' that these people follow, but I doubt they're saying the antlers are useless. . .What's the web site?

Paul Stamets sells freeze-dried Reishi mycelium capsules so obviously he sees all parts of the mushroom as having medicinal properties.

There were a few more similar sites that didn't seem credible, but I just wanted to verify my suspicions. Thanks for your help.

Hrm...well my mycelium's been growing in two spots since the day of the first post on this thread. One spot it's been growing on is the side of the bag, which looks absolutely normal (compared to all the pictures I've seen at least). The other spot is on the top of the substrate in my bag...which has not been really spreading downwards, though has been somewhat expanding sideways. It's like a big ball of mycelium on the top...I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced anything like this. I can't really shake up the substrate to mix it around...the bag isn't durable enough to shake it hard or anything, so I shook it until the ball was sort of buried and then just left it.
