Strain: Hericium coralloides AM-G90
Common Names: Coral Tooth, Yama clathroides (ヤマclathroides), Hóu Tóu clathroides De (猴頭clathroides的), Hérisson champignon, Herbstpilz, Koralloviy grib (коралловый гриб)
Hericium coralloides is similar in nature to H. erinaceus. They are both facultative parasites fruiting from dead tissue on hardwood trees in North America. They have a similar flavor, somewhat seafood-like. They also have a similar white toothed appearance. The major difference is that H. coralloides has spines 1cm in length that originates from branches, not a central point like H. erinaceus. The branches on H. coralloides originate from a central core and expand out, forming a mushroom 8-35cm across. The spores are white and measure 3-5 x 3-4 µ; round; amyloid; smooth or slightly rough.
Cellulose Decomposers: Softwood Sawdust
Most popular species under cultivation are naturally wood inhabiting fungi. So, growing on sawdust is a logical choice. Sawdust is mixed with wheat bran (or another nitrogen source) at 5-15% and Calcium Carbonate (CaCO3) (a buffering agent) at 2-3%, and filled into autoclavable bags. The bags are sterilized for a minimum of 1 hour at 121°C (15 psi when at sea level). Note sterilization exposure times vary depending on pressure and elevation. Finally, the substrate is cooled to at least 25°C (approx. 80°F) then, inoculated with grain or liquid spawn and incubated at appropriate temp for the species until colonization is complete.
