The delicious oyster mushrooms grow naturaly on birch, beech, ash, oak, popplar, willow and a numer of broadleaf trees all over the world. They prefer the cooler months when cultivated outdoors but can occour anytime during the year. Oystermushrooms can be cultivated on horizontal and vertical logs as well as on a number of substrates including waste materials such as straw, sawdust, coffegrounds and residues from making beer. Instructions for cultivation on logs see attached file.

To grow mushrooms on logs with mycelium dowels, you need an 8mm drill, beeswax and wax applicator. If you have it at home, great! If not, you can find it in our webshop.

1. Choose fresh logs without damage to the bark.

2. Drill 4 cm deep holes with 8 mm drillbit in a zigzag pattern with 10 cm between the holes.

3. Insert the mycelium dowels in the holes using a hammer.

4. Seal the holes with beeswax using our wax applicator or use grafting wax. If you use beeswax; melt it beforehand in a pan through a water bath and dip the wax applicator in the melted wax, which you then "dab" on the holes once or twice.

5. Soak the logs for a couple of days or moisten well with a water sprinkler.

6. Place the logs standing or lying down in a shady place protected from the wind.

7. Soak/water the logs as needed to maintain moisture content.

We always send a full description when purchasing all of our products.

Birch, beech, alder, ash, maple, oak, poplar and willow as well as other common hardwoods. Tough
types of wood give slower growth but give harvest over a longer period of time.

All orders placed before 11:00 a.m. are shipped the same day. We deliver with DHL, and deliveries usually take 2-3 working days. At hot temperatures in the summer that exceed 25 degrees, we wait to send products containing mycelium until the temperature has dropped. This is to protect mycelium, which is sensitive at too high temperatures.
