We are excited to announce that we are now able to ship spawn worldwide. If you are ordering spawn from a different country other than United States, before you place an order, please check with your plant quarantine at the department of agriculture about what species of mushroom spawn you are able to import into your country. This also goes for United States Territories: US Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico and Hawaii.

DISCLAIMER: Mushroom Mountain is not liable for lost or returned packages.


Jack'O'Lanterns are bioluminescent mushrooms that possess the ability to produce Luciferase, a enzyme responsible for the glowing gills, which is an ATP / Phosporylation pathway. This pathway can be useful for studying the effects of chemical pollutants, organophosphate runoff from herbicides and fertilizers, and other naturally or man-made compounds. We use this mushroom and culture to produce novel antibiotics and for mycoremediation experiments. Excellent for nature trails and just a beautiful mushroom to be admired, and viewed in the dark! Approximately 100 plugs by weight.
