Shiitake Mushroom Log Kit


Shiitake mushrooms (Lentinula edodes) are popular world-wide as being excellent in both taste and medicinal qualities.  In Asia, it is commonly believed that Shiitake mushrooms can help prevent cerebral hemmorages, boost energy, and support healthy circulation.  Even today scientists are studying the Shiitake, and the beliefs of their ability to lower cholesterol and blood pressure.

This log and stump growing kit will help you learn how to get started cultivating your own home-grown mushrooms that will keep bearing harvests for up to 6 years after initial inoculation.

The Shiitake Log & Stump Kit Contains:

  • 40 Shiitake Mycelium Spawn Innoculated Wood Plugs
  • Complete Instruction Sheet
  • Mushroom Recipes
  • 2 Wax Candles for Sealing

To inoculate stumps and logs, drill 5/16" diameter holes approx 2" deep (a drill bit stop collar from any local hardware store is helpful but not required) and tamp in the wooden plugs.  Seal over with wax. These plug spawn require 6-8 months of incubation time after being planted, before first mushrooms will start to grow.  Once the wood is properly innoculated and the incubation period passed you can expect many years of periodic fruitings of delicious shiitake mushrooms!
