Product Information

Shiitaki Log - Grow up to 1kg of fresh Shiitake mushrooms with this easy kit.

Very Easy to Grow!

Step 1 - Cut the top of the Bag off when it arrives and fill with cold water. If you not ready to use the kit you can stick it in the fridge untill you are as they will store for upto a month no problem.

Step 2 - After 12 hours, drain the water out of the bag and remove the log from the plastic bag.

Step 3 - Place somewhere humid and mist with water twice per day. As a suggestion, a big bucket inside your house with water in the bottom and a brick to sit your kit on out of the water works very well. Cover 3/4 the lid of the bucket with clear plastic to help keep the humidity high, make sure you fan fresh air in the bucket when you mist twice per day.

Step 4 - Watch your mushrooms grow before your eyes

After your first flush sit your log somewhere outside of the bucket to dry out and to settle for around 10 days. Then Repeate Step 1 and watch it happen all over again.
You should get up to 3 flushs of mushrooms, the biggest being the first flush and a litle less each time after.

When your kit is finished, don't throw it away as you can use it for compost in your garden or you can break the log up and use the inoculated sawdust to start your own logs from hardwood logs.

Have fun.
