Are you interested to farm & grow Cordyceps Cinensis yourself? Today, we will briefly explain the step by step to you, which will be truly useful if you want to plant Cordyceps Cinensis mushroom yourself. Here it is!
With the Cordyceps Sinensis benefits to help in Chinese medicine, this Cordyceps mushroom variant surely is really helpful if you often make the traditional medicine yourself at home. To plant and grow the mushroom, you will need live Cordyceps Sinensis extracts, silk work residue, cereal grain such as rye grain, glass jars or plastic bags, and temperature and humidity control equipment.
Place rye grain in a dry glass jar or plastic bag. Be sure to sterilize it beforehand, with hot water or other method. Even though the mushroom in the wild grows on moth larva, it can also be grown in other hosts like millet, rice, or rye grain. We recommend you to use rye or millet for higher quality product than rice. Alternatively, use the silk worm residue if you can manage to have it supplied for the best quality product than the use of grains. Then inoculate the substrate of the host with the Cordyceps Sinensis fungus. Note that the temperature must be between 68 and 74 degrees Fahrenheit. Diffuse light and atmospheric oxygen conditions similar to sea level must be present too. Grow fungus under those conditions for 28-30 days.
Move the fungus, substrate it in its containers to a controlled environmental chamber with 50% nitrogen, and 50% of oxygen, carbon dioxide, and carbon monoxide. The environment must be 37 degrees Fahrenheit without any light. Let the fungus grows for 15-20 weeks under those conditions. Then you can harvest and process the Cordyceps mushroom, which chemical composition from mushroom grown under those conditions will be nearly identical to that grown in the wild.
