Shiitake is an amazing mushroom with lots of flavor. The mushroom has been cultivated in japan for centuries . It has an outstanding texture as well as flavor wich has made it one of the most cultivated mushrooms in the world. Recommended substrates: oak, birch, maple and poplar. Instructions for log cultivation, 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.

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.
