Young Hemlock Reishi

Well  looky here. I spy a tree FULL of young Hemlock Reishi! Here in the northeast our ‘Reishi’ is Hemlock reishi, Ganoderma tsugae.  The original reishi, or Ganoderma lucidum, grows on hardwoods, and is quite uncommon here in New England.

That is going to be a lot o’ Reishi in a couple of months.

I’m not going to talk of the medicinal uses here, but a great reference is Robert Roger’s A Fungal Pharmacy** for those who may be interested!
