Grain spawn is the living culture of a fungus, called mycelium, growing on a grain-based material, or substrate. It can be used as a tool for expanding the amount of fungal material you have, through inoculation.

Serving a similar function to seeds, spawn is what growers use to start cultivating mushrooms.
