Root Mushroom Farm

The Root Mushroom Farm Lion’s Mane grow kit retails at $28.99 for a 2.9lb grow kit. Therefore using this grow kit may not provide any financial benefit when compared to purchasing fresh Lion’s Mane mushroom directly, unless an unexpectedly high yield occurred. However, it makes for a suitable gift to anyone interested in learning about cooking and growing with gourmet and medical mushroom as everything required is in the kit.

The appearance of this kit is also most appealing as a gift as it is designed to appear as a log ( as the mushroom would grow in nature). However unlike Lion’s Mane mushrooms grown on true logs it will not continue to provide flushes of mushrooms for years to come.
