the spores are all over the reishi whenthey hit maturity they spew spores out constantly take a cotin swap and move it around any dusty looking spots on the reishi then get that started on agar and make your transfers. this is how i got my reishi started and i have plenty of viable culture now

The rust-brown coloration on the fruitbodies (on top of the cap) is on giant spore deposit.
You can either take a sterile tissue transfer
or propagate from multi-spore by swabbing the top of the cap

Reishi Tea:
Dry and chop the fruitbodies
1 cup of water
1 teaspoon of chopped, dried Reishi
7 thin slices of fresh ginger root
simmer for 10 minutes
strain
serve with honey to taste
enjoy!

Honestly, you might actually google it.
Good idea.
I've read Stamets' book "Growing Gourmet and Medicinal Mushrooms" and he only mentions Ganoderma lucidum which is what I have.
Please summarize what you come up with.

There are many varieties of reishi :

- Akashiba ( red reishi )
- Kuroshiba ( black reishi )
- Aoshiba ( blue reishi )
- Shiroshiba ( white reishi )
- Kishiba ( yellow reishi )
- Murasakishiba ( purple reishi )
Each had been classified in the "Shinnoh Honshokyo" and in the catalogue of herbs written in the Ming Dynasty about the first or second century B.C.. The Akashiba ( red reishi ) is the one undergoing cultivation.

According to the Head of Research Institute, Mr Liew Kuo Choo, this fungus is a quality herb and is classified according to its color; green, yellow, red, white, purple and pink.
According to him, the research used the red one, Ganoderma Lucidum as the main constituent because it is said to be able to calm emotions, prevent coughs and heal asthma, bronchitis, high blood pressure, liver infections and others.

Reishi has been used is an exalted medicinal herb used in China since the 2nd Century B.C. The Shen Nong's Herbal Classic, a 2000-year old medicinal Chinese book, ranks Reishi as one of the superior medicines, effective for multiple diseases and for maintaining and restoring the body balance. It has no negative side-effects. Reishi, according to The Chinese Herbal Materia Medica, can be classified into six categories as per their shapes and colors. Each of the categories of this medicinal herb nourishes a different part of the body. Red colored Reishi for heart, purple is for joints, green for liver, white for lungs and skin, yellow nourishes spleen and black colored herb for kidneys and brain.
