Compost/Manure Mushroom

This mushroom requires a special substrate containing around 20% leached and dried manure or compost.

The king stropharia can grow to 20 cm high with a reddish-brown convex to flattening cap up to 30 cm across, the size leading to another colloquial name godzilla mushroom. The gills are initially pale, then grey, and finally dark purple-brown in colour. The firm flesh is white, as is the tall stem which bears a wrinkled ring. This is the origin of the specific epithet which means "wrinkled-ringed". It is found on wood chips across North America in summer and autumn. Described as very tasty by some authors, king stropharia is easily cultivated on a medium similar to that on which it grows naturally. Antonio Carluccio recommends sautéeing them in butter or grilling them.

Our Wine Cap Mushroom Grain Spawn is grown on 100% certified organic rye berries. It arrives contaminate free, fully developed, and ready to use.
