Using Tree Stump Or Large Log To Grow Mushrooms?
    #25124541 - 04/09/18 12:24 AM (3 years, 1 month ago)

I'm trying to learn how to do mushrooms properly. Over the years, I have had a couple of kits and was never successful in getting anything to grow.
I have studied a little bit about growing mushrooms, and have seen mushroom spawns for sale.
Recently, we had a tree cut down. One of the branches was saved as well as a stump that the tree cutters specifically told me about. I guess they knew from the log we told them to save, that I was going to use it for mushroom growing.
I don't remember where I learned about growing mushrooms on a tree stump. Is there any instructions on the internet about this? I have found info on how to use the log or branch. I just can't find where I saw how to use the tree stump for growing mushrooms. Maybe I just imagined it, but the guys who cut down the trees seemed to think that it was a good idea.
Do I just drill holes in the top of the stump, then put the spawn in and then cover it with wax? Or is there another recommended way of doing this? Thanks for any and all help.

You're trying to do oysters or shiitake correct?

Yes, you can grow any mushroom that naturally grows on wood. Pleurotus, Lentinula, Ganoderma, Gymnopilus etc. You can either drill a hole, fill it with spawn and seal it with wax as you said, or use spawn to inoculate sterile wooden dowels, and insert them into the hole. It's easier to work like that.

i've actually never had oyster mushrooms. If I had to pick between the 2, I would do Shitake, but it doesn't really matter a whole lot at this point since I am just learning how to do this. Thanks.

You can get pre colonized dowels on amazon.

And you can buy the uncolonized dowels from any store that sells wood, sterilize them yourself in a pressure cooker.

If you're doing logs in your yard and you like shiitake, then grow shiitake :grin:
