Our shiitake mushroom plugs enable you to make your own mushroom logs at home! Plug spawn grown at Cascadia Mushrooms are made only with high-quality and vigorous growing strains of shiitake mushroom that fruit in a wide range of temperatures and climates. We include easy-to-follow instructions.
Each bag of spawn contains 100+ plugs, enough to inoculate 3 to 5 logs that are 3 to 4 feet in length. Once inoculated, the logs must be placed in a shady area exposed to natural rainfall and out of direct summer sun. Mushrooms begin to fruit in one or two years after prolonged soaking. They will continue to produce until the logs rot to the ground (anywhere from 3-7 years!). This is a great garden project and makes an excellent gift for the Do-It-Yourself gardener or homesteader.
