Advice please
    #2930697 - 07/27/04 01:27 AM (12 years, 9 months ago)

I tried cultivating before - successfully - and found the cultivation process even more enlightening than the final product, and so I decided to try different strains. Sorry if this isn't in the right area, I didnt know where to ask this. I decided to try growing blue oysters, lion's mane, and reishi. I tried looking for grow logs and whatnot for these but after a while ive had a hard time finding useful information for my grow. Heres how im thinking it could work seeing how lion's and reishi could be grown - spawn the mycelium on WBS until its fully colonized - then pasturize some oak sawdust in a sterilized bowl - mix the ready spawn with the saw dust, add a casing layer and treat it like a casing - while i'de treat the oysters like a cube casing as it doesnt seem to ask for hardwood like the other ones. I"me wondering if this would work? - if its been done before? - if there are any easy and accessible grow logs I could learn from? - and if anyone would have useful links for my project?

Thankyou for the your time :p

good luck. get hold of Stamets' MMGG if you can afford it, and read read read.

pasteurised oak sawdust can work if you only want a few fruits for fun - i'm growing shiitake like that right now - but don't assume that all species like a casing layer, or that oak will work. there are a couple of good reishi logs about (just search on reishi) and i've seen oysters, shiitake and lions mane all successfully fruited on pf cakes. oysters are easy peasy.

good luck  :laugh: and get reading

I hadnt been getting any logs with the search option and then i realized there was a date dealy at the bottom - reset it to 100 years and voila!

I'm getting those books by the mail - but the spore syringues have a 4 day early postage start over the books :p

Shirley, could you perhaps point a relative newb. to any easy(ier) teks for shiitake?
I've looked at the log deal...I was hoping there was an easier way. I'm trying to decide all of this *before* I order a shiitake syringe. Y'know--plan ahead. I guess if anyone sees this, I'm welcome to any and all suggestions for shiitake. Thanks!
