Shiitake Cult.
    #4475916 - 07/31/05 02:38 AM (11 years, 6 months ago)

Nothing like growing your own ediable mushrooms :cool2:

Anyways...I attempted to grow some Azures and Shiitake like 2 weeks ago and it didn't quite work out...

So I figured I'd give it another go around and post about it...

Well last time I soaked the chips until they all sank...

Then I let them drain for about 30 minutes...(should have waited an hour)...

Then I loaded them into Qt jars and then each jar got 1/4 a cup of bran...

I then poured out the contents of each indivual jar - Mixed the sub. - Then placed back in the jars..

I did all the b/c I didn't know how many qt's worth of sub. I had...lol..

Anyways...I PC-ed for I think an hour...Might have be 90 minutes...

Then After the pc cooled (overnight), I took them out, and knocked up with Shiitake LC...

The water content was rather..off :lol:...It was my first time attempting any type of woodlovers...

I noticed that after 2 days there was no growth and that they all (azures and shiitake) had some dust/chips stuck on the bottom...Kind of looked like how pf-tek jars look when ya got the water content a bit high...

Anyways, after about a week nothing was there so I threw in out..=/

I'd like to try again but maybe a bit different this time...

I've got some Wheat bran and some smoking woodchips...

I'll be looking around this forum in search of how to go about it.

:grin:

Well thankx for checking my thread out.

yea getting the water content is pretty key.. the woodlovers can actually do decently OK with a slightly off water content, but standing water is always a bummer..

i suggest growing some grain out first and doing g2g from your grain to your supplemented sawdust.. i hear strait LC to sawdust mixtures can be tough to get going.. didnt work for me...

and what was your mixture?

Mixture?...

You mean my substrate?

It was Oak woodchips/bran and a little bit of Saw dust...

The woodchips had some dust in it so I didn't add much more dust to it.

I heard that sweet gum and two other species were great for shiitake but oak was Way easier to find.

And i'll def. try doing that LC.

Tnkx.

its OK to add some more dust.. people over in asian countries grow mostly in dust, dont even use woodchips.. the dust will be easier for the myc to grow threw and help it create more of a block.. the woodchips are just to give some large bits in there to form things a little better... id say you only need like 30-40% chips, mostly dust, with another 10-15% bran... bran being the most expensive and essentially just a supplement. sawdust makesup most of it..

Hm...

I've been having TERRIBLE results with Grains...

Only thing i've gotten to colonize is Popcorn...lol And it SUCKS...

All my WBS just Doesn't colonize and most contam =/

But I'd like to give that a shot, i'm sure it'd be one of the best ways, but Grains + Nostic = :thumbdown: :lol:
