Your Shiitake Mushroom Log arrives ready to burst out with mushrooms and includes everything needed for home Shiitake cultivation
The Shiitake Mushroom Kit allows you to grow some of the mushrooms used by the finest chefs in the world easily and quickly almost anywhere in your own home or office. The Shiitake Mushroom Kit takes only a 9″ by 9″ space for growing mushrooms, requires no more care nor knowledge than a common tropical plant and comes with complete instructions and materials to maintain the correct environmental conditions around your log. Mushroom Logs may be used for growing mushrooms on a coffee table, counter, or desk – they will produce mushrooms virtually anywhere room temperature is maintained! Now you have the opportunity not only to enjoy watching these exotic mushrooms grow but also to enjoy eating the freshest mushrooms possible. Each kit may produce over a pound of mushrooms in 2 to 4 crops (mushroom flushes). Mushrooms need plenty of fresh air to develop normally. High carbon dioxide levels from mushroom metabolism will accumulate in sealed growing environments and can reduce cap size and elongate stems severely.
Organic Mushroom Spawn used to seed these logs is Certified Organic by Quality Assurance International (QAI).
