Product Overview

This is a (1) 12 in. Shiitake Log that will give you Shiitake Mushrooms for the new 2 plus years. Enjoy the distinctive flavor and texture of fresh-picked shiitake mushrooms. Each hand-cut hardwood log is inoculated with spores that will sprout organic shiitake mushrooms. This mushroom-growing kit lets you grow delicious and healthful shiitake mushrooms at home. The hand-cut hardwood log arrives pre-inoculated. Logs can be stood upright or laid horizontally for growing. Metal plaque on underside of log states date of inoculation. Just soak the log for 24 hours in cold water, mist it occasionally, and watch your crop emerge once the inoculation period is reached. 12 in. long, approx. 3 in. to 6 in. Dia 4 lb. to 7 lb. This strain features a fast spawn run, large, thick, first flush mushrooms with heavy yields. Choose a nice shady spot in your yard for your Mushroom log. When the spawn run is complete, the mycelium takes 6 to 12 Months from the inoculation date to start fruiting. When you can see fine white fibers (hyphae) running through the ends of the log they are ready for fruiting. Some logs take longer than others but we are here to help you grow the most amazing Shiitake mushrooms you have ever tasted. Just ask if you have any questions. First Mushrooms will develop 6 to 12 Months from the date of inoculation. We age the logs for a few months before they ship.

This came right on time! I was excited to give this as a gift. My only concern was not seeing any directions in the box. The ink stamp with the 2FUNGUYS logo (and maybe their web address) wasn't complete or clear, so maybe the stamp pointed to the directions on the site. I'd order again, though!

I followed the instructions, waited. Continued as per the instructions, waited some more. About two years later, two mushrooms grew. Then that was it. 3.5 years later chucked it in the garden waste. $12.50 per mushroom is not a good deal.

I'm not someone who likes to take care of things, so I wasn't super excited when I received a mushroom log as a gift. I've tried growing flowers and herbs before, and it has never worked, so I don't do plants. Lucky for me, mushrooms aren't plants. I've made almost zero effort, and I have a thriving mushroom garden! I soaked the log, put it in the back yard, and forgot about it for a few months. When I checked it again, it looked like something was starting to happen. Not long after that, mushrooms were sprouting all over the log. And the shiitakes are delicious! It could be my imagination, but they taste better than any mushrooms I’ve bought at a grocery store.
