Wood sub?
    #4642415 - 09/10/05 04:12 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

Ok, I have a pint of shiitaki ready to bust out of the jar. I read a thread recently about substatuting sawdust with coir. Does anyone have anymore info on this? And can you mix it with bbq wood chips? :grin:

well, coir does have some nutes to it, but I don't think it is enough to grow off of. I'm assuming you have spawn that is "ready to bust out of the jar". I would stick to spawning it to the sawdust.

Oak is the primary wood that shiitake likes, but you can use other types of wood. The two types you really want to stay away from are cedar and pine. Both of those have a natural resistance to mold and fungus, so they wouldn't be good to grow from.

You should make a mix...the sawdust alone will get too wet and thick. I would make a mix of sawdust, chips, and coir to make it nice and airy. Should allow the spawn to colonize it quickly.
