Grifola Frondosa Spore Print

Grifola Frondosa spore prints for experienced mycologists. Spore prints are extremely hard to handle without contaminating. For optimal results, we recommend our liquid culture syringes. 

How are spore prints made?

  • To take a spore print, cut the stem off a mushroom and place the cap gills-down on a piece of foil, paper, or an index card.
  • Add a drop of water to help release the spores, then cover with another object like a paper cup or glass.
  • Leave for 2-24 hours to allow spores to fall and create a spore print pattern.
  • Be sure your work environment is completely sterile and free of contaminants.

Hen of the Woods Mushrooms

Maitake mushrooms are often referred to as Hen of the Woods because of their meaty texture. Commonly found at the bast of decaying trees, variations of Maitake occur naturally in North America, Europe and Asia. Maitake grow from sclerotium, a tuber-like structure roughly the size of a potato.
