Best way to start growing oyster or shiitake?
    #2658144 - 05/09/04 09:32 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

Hey,

Ive done cubensis before, now I want to try my hand at some edible strains. What prompted this thread was that a neighbor of mine had a tree cut down and chipped and offered the entire neighborhood any mulch if they needed. I remembered reading that oyster and shiitake, both of the ones I was considering growing, will grow on hardwood, so I took a rubbermaids worth, but Im not sure what to do from here.

My copy of Growing Gourmet and Medicinal Mushrooms should arrive in the mail next week, so please dont tell me to read up. I can't yet. My questions are:

1) Can I innoculate a BRF cake to just get the mycelium going and then spawn to the woodchips? I dont have straw or WBS. I also dont think I have any way of turning the woodchips into sawdust

2) The woodchips dont need to be pasteurized, do they? I plan on doing an outdoor sort of grow, Just straight woodchips in the rubbermaid, if I can.

3) Are the only differences between the oyster varieties color?

Thanks.

I would get our new dowel spawn generation bag inoculate it and then once it is ready use that to spawn the mulch.



Wood chips are fine if they are freshly cut and used before something else starts to grow on them. I have never tried wood chips in a tub. Don't see why it would not work if you provide air exchanges. You can always make a outdoor bed too, or do both even.

The different oysters also taste differently. My favorites are the blue (Pleurotus columbinus) and the yellow (Pleurotus citrinopileatus).

I have a good shiitake mycelium base on grain, and am wondering what should I do with it next.
I have found dowels to be quite spendy in this area and am wondering if using a bag with white wood bedding would work?
