Shiitake for Virgins - Grow Log / Invitation
    #14042287 - 02/28/11 03:56 PM (10 years, 7 months ago)

Time to learn shiitake, I reckon.
EvilMushroom666 hooked me up with a wedge, very generous.
I'm planning to make dowel spawn for friends and dowels or sawdust blocks for myself.
This thread will be a place to discuss it as the grow goes along.
Plan at this stage is agar->grain->grain LC->grain->dowels.

This is Stage Zero.
Unpack wedge, load glovebox, wait fifteen minutes, inoculate jars.

Wooden dowels. Colonize with fungus, then plug into holes drilled in logs.

Ahh.I read about plugs and logs. Cool stuff. My cultures were mailed today. Expecting by friday.
I hear sawdust works well for these. Not sure where to get sawdust though. I can get shavings that are used in horse stalls at the local ag store.

I'm book marking this thread.

Thanks :smile:

This thread was moved from Mushroom Cultivation.

Reason:
We only discuss actives in the Mushroom Cultivation forum so I'm moving this to Gourmet and Medicinal Mushrooms forum.

Once it gets going, you'll be amazed at how fast it grows.  Shiitake will colonize a sawdust substrate in half the time cubensis needs to colonize the same amount of horse manure.

Then, you get to wait two months until it's ready to fruit. :laugh:

I give credit to shiitakes from preventing any cold/flu this year for me! :smile:

Unfortunately my greenhouse collapsed in a snowstorm :frown:

Goodluck, I'm sure it will turn out marvelously.

Was the wedge 75?

Nice idea Doc!

I have gotten fruits from my work with sawdust.  I have yet to find
a good source for cheap logs here in So Cal.

Hey Teknix, check the first photo, it is "Night Velvet"

Take care,

JD

Long disproved.  Peroxide isn't a substitute for sterilization, even for the lazy.

Y'all buy your dowels locally, or through the mail?
Big-name hardware stores had tiny expensive bags, ok for a couple uses but not viable long term.
I'm going to check a local woodworking place today... where else?
