Suitability of various wood substrates
    #4553916 - 08/19/05 01:04 AM (12 years, 10 months ago)

For growing gourmet and medicinal mushrooms:

Has anyone found a listing of species that have been used where Oak, Poplar, and Cottonwood might not be available? I'm thinking for use in desert areas that might host mulberry, for example. The trees can grow very fast and this would be a good use of prunings. Fruit wood has been cited as poor yielding, but I assume that means stone fruits.

Any ideas? I've searched through most links to developing ag resources in third world countries and such.

They'll grow on just about any wood but cedar. Hardwoods are better, but everything I've tried will grow reishi, shiitake and oyster. I get the brush clippings that road crews clear from under powerlines, and it has hardwoods, softwoods, weeds, berry bushes, you name it, all mixed together. It works very well. I would just try whatever is in your area. You'll be surprised.
