The release conference over GANOHERB's Undertaking of the Project on Ganoderma Lucidum from Space was convened in Fuzhou on July 5th, 2017. Since then, the first batch of strains of Ganoderma Lucidum from Space settled down in Fujian GANOHERB Group Mount Wuyi Ganoderma Plantation Base. GANOHERB was honored with the plaque of "The Demonstration Base of Cultivation and Deep-processing of Ganoderma Lucidum from Space".
It is learned that a batch of selected Reishi Mushroom strains took Shenzhou No.1 unmanned spacecraft to space and returned to Earth after 21 hours of space flight. Since then, the Institute of Medicinal Plant Development of Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences spent over a decade in cultivating a new generation of high-quality strains with modern biotechnology.
According to Sun Xiaobo, Head of the Institute of Medicinal Plant Development of Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences, the new strains of Reishi Mushroom have strong resistance, many effective constituents and high-yield spores. He expressed that the successful breeding of Ganoderma Lucidum from space solved the problem of strain degeneration of the artificially-cultivated reishi mushroom. Although the research still needs the time to observe and improve, it fills the void of China's space breeding of medicinal fungi and marks that the modern research of Lingzhi Industry has reached a new height.
On July 9th, 2018, GanoHerb officially announced that the large-scale cultivation of the first batch of Ganoderma Lucidum strains from space has been actualized in Pucheng, Fujian.
