I'm attempting to grow Shitake and Lion's Mane for the first time. I ordered plug spawn from FP and did up 7 shitake logs and 3 with Lion's Mane, all on oak logs. These are going to take a long time yet even being in the basement with constant temps so I'm trying another method to get results faster. I dropped a few leftover plugs into jars of sterilized rye grain but most were struck with contamination. I have one shitake jar that is about half colonized but it stalled and the mycylium looks really weak so I'm trying to decide what to do with it. Maybe I'll just toss it into a tray and cover it with 50/50 to see what happens. I'm going to try a few more jars of rye and if they look better I'll use them to innoculate a tray of straw and wheat bran to see if I can get that to colonize. If you have any suggestions I'd be glad to hear them. I still have a few plugs left so if my agar ever gets here I'm going to attemp to transfer to some agar plates for the first time maybe then I can get a more sterile transfer to the rye. Otherwise I might just case the left over plugs to see if they will fruit and give me a spore print to work from. Then at least I could try a honeywater jar.

for shittake use saw dust-bran jars in a 4 to 1 ratio
4 parts saw dust, 1 part bran
that's the substrait i'm sueing for oysters as well. THe oysters really seem to like the butternut wood. the shiitake would prob fair better on oak,
That's what i'm doing. lucky my shcool has a wood shop so i can get the shavings and dust there. THere are otehr types of wood that work, their listed in the "CULTIVATOR"
stay away from conifers pine, cedar etc
