Maitake Mushrooms (Hen of the Woods)
Scientific Name: Grifola frondosa
Cultivation: Hen of the Woods are widely appreciated for their culinary as well as medicinal properties. Start your own "flock" in the woods by planting small, freshly cut hardwood stumps. Bashful Maitake needs shade and can be a finicky fruiter, but well worth the challenge. Available in sawdust or plug spawn for log inoculation, Table Top Farms, or in 8-Block Sets (ready-to-fruit).
