Shiitake environment
    #11232810 - 10/12/09 02:13 PM (8 years, 6 months ago)

Hey, a friend of mine has a pre-inoculated shiitake log that she wants me to help her with, and since I've never grown anything but cubes before, I'm not sure what exactly I need to do environment-wise.  Do these need nearly 100% humidity at all times like cubes do, or would that be detrimental to them?  If I were to set up a bucket with polyfil or shotgun holes for fae and perlite on the bottom to keep up humidity, would that be an unnecessary or maybe even detrimental step?  Thanks in advance for your help.

If it's a hardwood log, you won't fruit it indoors.  If it's fully colonized, you can soak in a bucket for a day or two, and then lay in bright shade outdoors to fruit naturally.  Usually, shiitake logs don't fruit the first year, at least not in my area.

Ok, so would this time of year be a bad time to start it, or do you think it would be ok.  I assume that the mycelium is capable of surviving the cold, but I guess won't fruit past a certain temperature?
