Hen-of-the-Woods MAITAKE (Grifola frondosa)

MAITAKE is highly regarded for its culinary and potential health benefits. Hen-of-the-Woods mushrooms have a distinctive, frilly or ruffled appearance, resembling the feathers of a fluffed-up hen, hence the name. They offer various nutrients and bioactive compounds. They are a good source of dietary fiber, protein, vitamins (including B vitamins like niacin and riboflavin), minerals (such as potassium, calcium, and phosphorus), and essential amino acids. They also contain polysaccharides, antioxidants, and other bioactive compounds.

They also:

  • Help stimulate the immune system, support its proper functioning, and enhance the body’s defense against infections and diseases.
  • Contain antioxidants that help protect cells from damage caused by free radicals.
  • Have blood sugar-regulating effects.
  • Supports healthy digestion and help promote regular bowel movements.

Cultivation information:

  • Substrate: maitake mushrooms grow best on hardwood sawdust or logs.
  • Temperature: keep the substrate between 13-18°C (55-65°F) during colonization.
  • Humidity: maintain high humidity levels of 85-95% during fruiting.
  • Fresh air flow: provide good air flow to prevent contamination.
  • Spawning: inoculate the substrate with spawn and wait 2-6 months for colonization.
  • Lifting: harvest the mushrooms when the fruiting bodies are fully formed and the edges start to curl up.
