For flush volume, is reishi or shiitake better?
    #3566001 - 12/31/04 06:45 PM (12 years, 20 days ago)

    I've been reading up on shiitake growing, and from the pics I've seen it seems like a decent-sized block of colonized substrate will only fruit in a few places.  It seems like if you're going to go to the trouble of trying grow these for consumption on a regular basis, you'd have to go with a liquid culture and do up a lot of jars and spawn those to several bags. 
    Is this line of thinking correct?  And for reishi, are yields similar to shiitake? 
    Thanks!  :grin:

i think logs are the way to go if you want shiitake yield. one big bagful of dowels will sort out a pile of logs. reishi doesn't yield big, and it's not a big eater. if you want lotsa free food, go for oysters (pleurotus spp).

Can oysters grow on logs?

From what I understand oysters are wood lovers which is why they do well with logs, sawdust, paper and woodchips. There have been some awesome pics on here of oysters growing on a roll of paper towels. I've been experimenting with oysters and they are pretty tasty and fast fruiting to boot. I'm pretty sure you can grow them on logs but I think they grow faster and more prolific with sawdust, paper or straw "logs". I've been using PF -BRF and verm- cakes on wood chips and they are doing ok but this is my first grow so I'm not a good example. Another forumite, "srgtm1a" has been having really nice results with PF cakes and oysters.
here's the thread:

The smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively debate within that spectrum - even encourage the more critical and dissident views. That gives people the sense that there's free thinking going on, while all the time the presuppositions of the system are being reinforced by the limits put on the range of the debate

Oysters and cubensis are the two easiest mushrooms to grow IMO.
