Approximately 2.5kg block of supplemented sawdust colonized with shiitake mushroom, Lentinula edodes.
Fruits will develop around 50-70F. These mushrooms tend to grow slightly slower then EM’s wide range temperature strain. Once fruiting starts they will be prolific in colder temperatures. Logs will fruit during colder months in any area of the US and are particularily well suited for northern US and Canadian climates.
This product can also be utilized as a fruiting block of shiitake mushroom, works great during the winter months!
Sawdust spawn can also be used an an economical way to make your own mushroom logs. Having a sawdust spawn palm inoculator will make this a lot easier, unfortunately we do not offer that tool at this time, but we’re working on getting them in! (Email us and we’ll tell you where to get one). By using the palm inoculator you’ll be taking small “plugs” of sawdust out of the block. You then sett the tube of the inoculator over your drilled hole, smack the end of it to force the plug of sawdust into the hole, and then cover and seal with wax. You can do this by hand, of course, or with cruder implements if need be. The important thing is to cram the sawdust into the drilled hole and then cover and seal with cheese wax.
