Shiitake on stump and logs
    #3155220 - 09/20/04 12:23 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

In the Spring of 2003 I inoculated a already not very fresh stump with 5 or 6 dowels around the circumference .
1 weeks ago 2 mushrooms appeared, 1 was already eaten up by slugs when I found it.



The one partially whole mushroom is on the right, the remains of the second are at the bottom of the picture.

The same day I soaked a few shiitake logs that I inoculated in 2002 and 2003 and today 3 of them had quite a few mushrooms growing:

I'll be the first to congratulate you on a beautiful grow.

Gorgeous!

I noticed that the shittake logs are buried in the earth.

What benefits do you you think would be realized from more dowels being innoculated? As you've said, you've used 5-6 around the circumference. What if many more innoculation points were used? Would this increase the yield, in your opinion?>

nice pictures !
why are some of the mushrooms on the lower picture on the lift so turned around?`
Was the log stored horizontally for some time ?

Actually they aren't, they are just in contact with earth.

>What benefits do you you think would be realized from more dowels being inoculated?
Faster and better colonization I guess.

The more the merrier. The problem was that the stump is in the woods, and I had to bring an accu driver with me, which only lasted a few holes.

Hmm...don't know which you mean. Some were half eaten by slugs.

>Was the log stored horizontally for some time ?
No, they were leaned against the tree all the time.

I mean the ones on the top of log in the middle. Here is a cutout:

I have seen something like that on a tree that fell down - some poliphores that were growing on it before it fell grew in a totally different direction then the ones that came out after it had fallen down.

No, not directly :smile:. The amount of available starting substrate for a log is a static amount. This amount is simply depleted everytime mushrooms fruit. Increasing spawn rate will decrease colonisation times but doesn't have a direct impact on yields. The indirect impact is that faster and denser colonisation decreases the presence of competitor fungi which inevitably invade your logs, especially in age. These fungi directly impact the available substrate. Spawn prices and labor time introduce an increasingly sharp curve of diminishing returns.
