Plug Spawn are small wooden dowels colonized by mushroom mycelium. 50 plugs will inoculate a single 4' long, 4'' diameter log. Drill 5/16'' holes into your log, hammer in the plugs and seal the holes with wax. Plugs are an excellent choice for beginners. 

*Please Note: only one species of mushroom can be inoculated in a single log. Each 100-count bag will inoculate approximately 2-4 logs. Mycelium growth is normal and will appear as a white or yellow material growing on your plugs. The little 'dots' in the bag are millet seeds and are used to pass the mushroom culture onto the plugs, they too are normal and can be ignored!

FAQ

Varieties:

Chicken of the Woods Laetiporus sulphureus - Large bright orange fruit bodies have a texture reminiscent of chicken. Great in soups and stir-fries. Fruits all season from late spring into late fall. Prefers large-diameter oak logs.

Reishi Ganoderma lucidum - Beautiful, almost lacquered looking, polypore mushroom known for its medicinal use. Not a culinary mushroom. Best used in teas or tinctures and as a preventative medicine. Reishi has over 2000 years of documented medicinal use by peoples in East Asia. 

Grey Oyster Pleurotus ostreatus - Very popular fleshy firm edible grey-white oyster-shaped caps often found growing on old dying maple trees. Our most productive oyster strain. Reliable and cold tolerant, fruits prolifically in early spring or late fall. Grows well on many different hardwood species including oak, maple, and poplar.

Golden Oyster Pleurotus citrinopileatus - A tropical variety of oyster mushroom. Delicious and unique flavor profile, reminiscent but slightly more delicate than Grey Oyster mushrooms. Likes to fruit in warmer weather and makes a good complementary producer to our other oyster mushroom species. 

Italian Oyster Pleurotus pulminarius - A thicker and meatier oyster mushroom. Can grow caps that are quite large. Fruits in early spring or late fall. Grows well on many different hardwood species including oak, maple, and poplar.

Lion's Mane Hericium erinaceus - Pure white cluster of icicle-like teeth, often found on beech and birch in the wild. When cooked, they have a consistency similar to crab meat. Naturally fruits during cooler months. Due to a slower colonization rate, higher inoculation rate should be used. Can be grown on many different hardwood species, large- or small-diameter logs.

Shiitake Lentinula edodes - Edible brown umbrella-shaped spongy caps, very nutritious and medicinal. Good for drying and reconstituting in winter soups. Meaty texture when cooked. Grows best on oak and maple.
