The best and most natural way to grow these mushrooms is on hardwood logs using mushroom dowels. This is a gradual (6-12 months for first harvest) and low-intensity method that can see you harvesting shiitake mushrooms 4-6 times a year for up to 6 years. Traditionally, logs to be inoculated would be placed adjacent to ones that have already grown the mushrooms and the spores would infiltrate the new logs naturally. However, since the development of the mushroom farming industry over the last 100 years it is now possible to implant mycelium directly into the logs and get a “head start” on the traditional method.

  • The ideal growing conditions for the shiitake mushrooms are: 14-17 C
  • We recommend a storage temperature of no higher than 5 C
  • First harvest: Seasonally in Autumn or Spring

  • 50 x Shiitake Mushroom Plugs
