Gourmet Oyster Mushroom Plugs allow you to grow your own mushrooms at home!
Our oyster 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 Blue Oyster that fruit in a wide-range of temperatures and climates. We include easy-to-follow instructions. Don’t forget the sealing wax!
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.
Some tools required (power drill, mallet or hammer, sealing wax, heat source for melting wax).
Ordered 100 Oysters and 100 Shiitake plugs. Fun project! Instructions were easy to follow and accurate. We recently had a windstorm so had some downed alders and one large stump. Planted the Oysters. 100 is a lot! :-) I can't wait to see how I did next year. Shiitake's next. Great experience!
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.
