Make Reishi art! Keep your Reishi growing inside the bag as pictured for “antler” growth. Opening the bag and allowing the mushrooms to breathe will result in “conk” formation. Experiment with the direction of light and cutting small holes in the bag. The mushrooms will follow the light and fresh air. Once you’ve achieved the desired size and shape, simply remove the whole bag and allow the entire block and mushroom sculpture to dry out. Now you’ve got a super cool centerpiece for your coffee table!
