Psilocybe cyanescens on logs?
    #3959732 - 03/23/05 03:13 PM (12 years, 5 days ago)

I have been growing shiitake for a few years, and now I'm going to try psilocybe cyanescens. I would like to try growing it on logs in a similar way to shiitake. Has anyone tried this? Or does anyone have an idea of whether or not it will work?

thanks.

Are you asking about birch plugs inserted into logs? AFAOF is exploring this very idea now...

Any ideas anyone?

I know a guy who is doing shiitake on oak logs. i beleive he said the spores are inserted threw a hole in the plugs and then you drill a hole in the log and pop that sucker in there. that's pretty much ALL i know on the subject. i've seen pictures of them growing on logs so i'm sure it's possible.

I'm not so sure they could colonize something as dense as a log. In nature, they're on heavily decomposed wood that's been covered in soil. If you'll spawn wood chips instead, then bury them in a cool shady area of your garden, you'll get a few flushes this fall.

I was going to use beach plugs, but basically you've hit the nail on the head. I'm going to look up AFAOF right now to see what they are doing.

I looked up AFAOF and I've found a few vague references to it around the Internet, but nothing conclusive. Maybe this is something everybody knows and I've just missed it because I'm new to this community,,, but who or what is AFAOF?

Thenewguy05: I'm not growing shiitake but psilocybe cyanescens, which is a different species. Sorry if I wasn't clear about that earlier.
