General Shiitake questions, and looking for small scale shiitake grow logs with pics?
    #11315266 - 10/25/09 12:19 AM (8 years, 16 hours ago)

i cant find much with the search.

I'd like to discuss:

where to acquire shiitake spores?
how to inoculate dowels with shiitake spores?
where to find the proper dowels and substrate?
best PC method to sterlize? where to get the bags?
best indoor/outdoor conditions?
where to find the best oak (?) logs and what type to drill and plug?
how to make shiitake LC?
can u clone store bought shittake?

i have a lot of questions on shittake. also, how is maitake to grow? and how do they taste in comparison?

I'm surprised but there isn't much to be found on shiitakes round here.

I'd like to see teks on shiitake LC's too.

I have seen some positive results with cloning store bought Shiitake on this forum. I imagine it depends on the freshness of the mushrooms though.

Why would you want to go through the trouble of inoculating logs when you can make your own 'log' in a bag. I would say its a lot less trouble.

That sounds great, but I cannot find any real pictorial logs from start to finish doing any such thing :sad:

and I'd actually like to try both methods while they are still legal.

why would shiitake get banned? thats retard. you should buy the growing gourmet and medicinal mushrooms book. It has all the info for growing shiitake on logs outdoors and blocks indoors. it also describes several other species that are commercially grown.

I will certainly look into the book, but I'm still shocked I don't see more around here...

It's not like it's psychoactive or anything. They might as well start banning potatoes if they are going to ban Shiitakes. Doesn't make much sense to me actually.

I was being facetious, my good man...

So anyway, let's get back on track. I really want to get a shiitake project put together. I need to gather some logs, dowels, and cultures.

Shiitakes can be very dangerous in one way.

Moving whole logs more that 30 miles is illegal in many states, and if the log is infested with an invasive bug it could wipe out tons of trees.

Spread the word - don't transport firewood or untreated mushroom logs. If you have to transport them, kiln them first.

I think the best logs are white oak.

Shiitakes actually were illegal in the US until the 1970's.  It was confused with Lentinus lepideus, a problematic fungus that eats railroad ties.
