Grifola frondosa is a polypore mushroom that grows in clusters at the base of trees, particularly oaks. The mushroom is commonly known among English speakers as hen of the woods, hen-of-the-woods, ram's head and sheep's head. It is typically found in late summer to early autumn. Like the sulphur shelf mushroom, Hen Of The Woods (Maitake) is a perennial fungus that often grows in the same place for a number of years in succession. It occurs most prolifically in the northeastern regions of the United States, but has been found as far west as Idaho.


Our live Hen of the Woods Mushroom Liquid Culture Syringe contains an isolated biological sample nurtured, tested, and expanded here at Liquid Fungi. Each Hen of the Woods Mushroom Culture is guaranteed 100% contaminate free, or we will replace it at no cost to you. Every mushroom culture syringe contains a proven high-output isolated sub-strain for maximum Hen of the Woods Mushroom yield and minimum incubation time. Every purchase includes a sterile individually packaged hypodermic needle for injecting substrate. Mushroom culture syringes are used by laboratories to easily transfer isolated biological samples between locations and substrates without risk of contamination. Mushroom syringes should never be used to inject humans or animals for any reason.
