shiitake on stove pellets
    #862220 - 09/03/02 07:18 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

What I want to know is anybody here have any luck with the stove pellets growing shiitake's. I was also thinking you know the wooden dowels that you use to innoculate logs could you use those to make a makeshift brick. I always check out the teks for P.C. 's and wonder if they can be used with other gourmet mushrooms. the dung tek works well with growing portabells. only draw back is some greem mold from time to time on the casing.
my shiitake logs outside are doing awsome will post pic's in the morning. got some rain and thinking of cloning to try growing a shiitake brick or two. If anybody here has any imput please reply

A downside to using dowels to make a brick is the amount of dowels it will take. I bought some nice maple dowels awhile back, one thousand of them; It was about $17-18; They only ended up filling about 6-7 jars, though. They colonize like crazy in any case. Another thing to consider is the airspaces that will be present with such big pieces making up a brick.
Best of luck;

I know this Thread is some days old, but i wanted to write, that shiitake doesn't seem to make any problems at all. I made clones from shiitakes from our local market and had not even any contamination (H2O2 Agar-Mix). They even fruit on one of the agar-plates. Because I didn't have a lot of time recently, they fruit on the rye-substrate, too. In the glasses with very little light. I will put the rye-substrate on woodchips, which I will purchase at an animal-supply-store (for reptiles, 2? a bick pack).
