Skill Level: 4/5
Growing Temperature: 55–70 °F
Maitake mushrooms (Grifola frondosa)—also known as "Hen of the Woods"—are succulent and delicious. A 55-70 °F environment is needed. Simply allow the kit to mature in the bag, then unwrap and water 2-3 times a day. Clusters of Maitake will spring forth in 1-2 weeks. Once your first flush has been harvested, the Maitake Mushroom Patch™ must be transferred to an outdoor bed for subsequent fruitings, which can occur in 6-12 months.
