Oyster logs
    #27047978 - 11/19/20 08:52 PM (13 days, 17 hours ago)

I have grown shiitakes in the past and had pretty good luck. I am now planning to grow oysters, lion's mane and chicken of the woods with plug spawn.  I live in central Florida and live on several acres of hardwood forest, which gives me access to trees. We have a lot of oaks and sweetgums.  I just cut up a freshly fallen large oak branch, about 9" diameter at the base end, and can cut down others.
Mushroom log questions:
- Does length matter? Are long logs better?  Although harder to handle. The biggest one is over a hundred pounds. Can I cut it into shorter lengths without problems?
- Should I bother inoculating smaller logs, 3" or less?
- Is sweetgum better or faster than oak? It is a softer wood than oak.
- What are the best wood species for the mushroom varieties I'm growing?

You can pancake the large logs. Cut them 4-6 inches thick and stack in same order cut,putting spawn between them. They call them totems.

I wouldn't go less than 3" diameter.
