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.

- 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.
