Can You Grow Tremella Mushroom?
Growing tremella mushrooms are best left to seasoned mushroomers, since the process can be difficult. The traditional method for growing tremella mushrooms, and one that is still used in parts of China, where they call them Silver Ear Mushrooms, is by growing them on logs using a spore hopper. But these days, most commercially produced tremella are grown in bags, in blocks with supplementary hardwood woodchip substrate.

Extracts are concentrated liquids containing beneficial, water-soluble compounds found in tremella mushrooms. While tinctures are typically made using a double-extraction process, containing both water-soluble and alcohol-soluble compounds found in mushrooms. To consume extracts or tinctures, squeeze one to two dropsperfuls under the tongue once or twice daily, or add two full dropsperfuls into coffee or a smoothie.
Like many other medicinal mushrooms, these beautiful, unique mushrooms have anti-inflammatory, anti-tumor, antioxidant, immune-boosting, and anti-aging properties.
