Our Hen of the Woods (Grifola Frondosa) plug spawn is ready for inoculation the second it turns up at your home. Our spawn is made in labs and stored in breathable bags meaning that it is free from all other competing species.

All of our spawn boasts a very low generational count. The lower the generation of the spawn, the nearer to the original spore sample, so at only the fourth generation, this spawn is guaranteed to be both high-quality and dependable.

‘Hen of the Woods’ will live up to its name and bring you a high yield. Instead of eggs, you’ll harvest vibrantly coloured and strong flavoured mushrooms with a naturally sweet taste.

  • Suitable for all customers from hobbyists to professionals

  • A nutty, sweet tasting mushroom

  • Large fruiting bodies for plenty of produce

  • Will bring harvests of mushrooms, year after year
