Lion’s Mane Spawn


Lion’s Mane – Hericium erinaceus – is an edible and medicinal mushroom with extracts from the species said to have a nootropic effect on the brain – boosting memory, cognition, mood, easing anxiety and helping to achieve a sounder sleep. No wonder it’s known as your brain’s best friend.

450g of fully colonised rye grain within a filtered MycoTub – taken directly from Lion’s Mane mother spawn to guarantee strong, healthy growth.


All of our spawn transfers take place in our ISO Class 5 Cleanroom and are immediately sealed in a breathable SteriBag.

You can choose to fruit right away from the MycoTub, or do some grain to grain transfers to bulk out your grow!
The MycoTub is filled at around ⅔ to allow for enough room to shake and break up the colonised grains, if required.

We have some sterile rye grain products suitable for transfers – the same MycoTubs that your spawn will arrive in can be found here and we also have the option of 500g or 1kg MycoBags here

You can also use some of the spawn on agar or in liquid culture.. it opens up a lot of fun options!

Lion’s Mane, also known as Monkey Head, Bearded Tooth, Satyr’s Beard, Bearded Hedgehog or Pom Pom Mushroom (great names) – is a truly unique beauty of the mushroom world.

Native to North America, Europe and Asia, with strong roots in traditional Chinese medicine.

It’s been gaining in popularity recently, as more of its remarkable health benefits are discovered.

Scientific studies are being undertaken to understand the molecular and biochemical mechanisms involved in the mushroom’s stimulation of neurite outgrowth to try and tackle health concerns of the aging population, most likely to be affected by neurodegenerative disorders like dementia. Some studies have shown that there is improvement in cognitive abilities of the aged if the mushroom is incorporated in their daily diets.. amazing, right?

Definitely one of the easiest mushrooms to identify by its tendency to grow in a clump of dangling spines.. and not hard to see how it got its common name!
