Logs!
    #1517698 - 05/03/03 04:05 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

Coucou!
One month ago, I have inoculated two **birch** logs with enokitake (I drilled many holes, put spawn in them and recovered them with cotton balls). I found the logs in march, in the forest. They looked cleaned (now, I think they are one year old; at that time, I thought they were freshly cut). I placed the logs in my garage. Today I checked them, and I saw some kind of mycelium (well, the stuff looked like mycelium; it was white) all over the logs.
Now, I'm asking myself two questions:
1) How much time does enoki mycelium need in order to colonize a log ? (60 cm long, diameter of 15-20cm).
2) Could it be possible that the logs were already colonized by another mycelium?
In my case, I think #2 happened... What do you think?

EDIT:
Replaced "oak" with "birch"... ( I don't know the names of the wood in english)

One question. . .from March until the time you inoculated them, were they in your garage?  Seeing mycelium overtaking the log after inoculating sounds promising.  But it might be the result of moving a log with a low level of weed fungi into a warmer environment.  It's tough to know for sure whether a log already has mycelium without ripping into the bark.  I'd be very suspicious of a log that's been lying in a forest for any length of time. 

It sounds good.  I don't know a lot about enokitake rates, though.  One month is pretty damn fast for logs, would love to see some pics regardless :smile:

Yes, they were in my garage.
I checked the other logs in the forest, they don't have any white stuff. So yes, I think the temperature in my garage was higher than outside and thus speeding the growth of another fungi on the log.
Ohh by the way, I only see white stuff where I cut the logs.
Pretty weird...
No pics for now :frown:

Surprise surprise

I took these pictures with my webcam, thus no quality.

This is a picture of one of the two logs.

This is a picture of the top. The white stuff in the center is cotton.

Mushrooms!!

:grin:

Wow - after 1 month?
This is a kick-ass strain.
