Cool stuff and great grow.
How much are they worth? I'm wondering if they can pay off.
BTW - I think you could just cut the sporulating parts (caps?) and let the rest grow a little more. It wouldn't hurt to try, I guess.
Thank you Koldjgdaro. They arnt worth much if you sell them in bulk, I was offered 25 USD for a kilo. So now Iam selling to friends and people that contact me on a hungarian forum. I now sell them for many times more but still cheap compared to the reishi pills being sold in shops.
Even though the spores are a pain in the ass, the conks produce biomass most eficiantly. In other words you get a higher yield growing conks, compared to antlers. Furthermore spores contain a higher beneficial alkaloid content than the flesh.
If I had a completly seperate room for growing them it wouldnt be a problem. I hope that my logs, innoculated last year will start producing this year. Maybe even some of the thiner logs I nocced a few months ago. That way I wouldnt have to grow indoors anymore untill I get more room to work with. Outdoor crops can be quite large, nice fat conks :thumbup:
