My experience with Hericium producers is limited. The mycelium grows so
rapidly that usually only one or two flushes are produced before
discarding the colonized blocks. Since Hericium erinaceous can produce
fruiting bodies within 30-35 days (I have seen production within 28 days
from inoculation!), and a second flush within 45 days, this is not
necesarry much of a total loss in overall production.
