Order 100 or 300 Maitake Mushroom Plugs.
Maitake mushrooms are delicious and have a wild, feathery look.
Maitake Plugs: Maitake Mushroom (Grifola frondosa) Hen of the Woods may best be known for its cancer-fighting properties. It contains grifolan, an important beta-glucan polysaccharide (molecule composed of many sugar molecules linked together).
Grifolan has been shown to activate macrophages, a type of cell consider the ” heavy artillery”: of the immune system, explains Larry A. Walker, Ph.D., R.D., author of “Natural products update,” published in Drug Topics, June 1997. D-fraction, one of the polysaccharides in Maitake mushroom, also energized the cellular immune system.
Will grow on a wide range of hardwood logs & stumps and some conifers: oak, elm, maple, sycamore, beech, plum, peach, hemlock, and many others. Logs may be laid on their side & partially buried. We suggest you cover the plugs with the cheese wax
