Plug spawn grown at Cascadia Mushrooms are made only with high-quality and vigorous growing strains of Shiitake/ Blue Oyster that fruit in a wide-range of temperatures and climates. Please indicate which variety you are looking for.
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.
Includes easy to follow instructions--requires some tools and sealing wax.

I have bought and used these plugs successfully in the past. I've had good crops of mushrooms on an alder log for three years so far. The plugs arrived looking fresh, thoroughly infiltrated with mycelium, and the wood was still firm so I could easily pound them into my new log.

Only took a couple days to get to me and I'm pretty they threw in more than the hundred plugs that I ordered thank you. I'm looking forward to these beauties blossoming.
