Product Details

No need for the grocery store when you can grow your own shiitake or oyster mushrooms at home! This at-home project will yield mushrooms for the next two years. Here's how it works: the logs are hand-cut and inoculated with shiitake or oyster mushroom spores in visible drill holes that are covered in cheese wax. A metal plaque on the underside of each log states the date of inoculation. Just soak the log for 24 hours in cold water, mist it occasionally, and watch your crop emerge once the inoculation period is reached (the inoculation period is 6 to 12 months).

  • Made of: Natural wood and oyster mushroom spores; Natural wood and shiitake mushroom spores
  • Size: Log is 12" L x approx. 3-6" in diameter. Each log is unique so size will vary.

Care & Notes
  • Choose a nice shady spot outdoors for your Mushroom log

  • Care instructions are included with each log. From the time the logs are inoculated with spores (this part’s already done when they arrive!), they will take 6 to 12 months to sprout mushrooms.

  • Keep your log somewhere shaded, whether it’s in a greenhouse, a shed, or on a balcony slightly covered with a shady canvas cloth.

  • You should be able to "force fruit" your log every 2 to 3 months with soaking. The monthly soaking keeps the moisture content high which the mushroom logs need to produce fruit!

  • Let the logs rest after each fruiting for 8 weeks. This resting period is for the mycelium to extract more nutrients from the log for more mushrooms.
