How Do You Take Care Of A Shiitake Mushroom Log?
  • All across the globe, the shiitake mushrooms have
    grown in popularity. They are well known for
    their incredible taste and plentiful health
    benefits. The presence of various compounds in
    shiitake helps them to combat various ailments.
    Their consumption may help in the boosting of the
    immunity system and can even lend support to the
    cardiovascular system.

Taking Care . . .
  • A vast majority of the people feel that shitake
    mushrooms are the tastiest of the lot. In the
    stores, they are one of the most expensive ones,
    and it is quite challenging to come across
    organic varieties quickly. Under such
    circumstances, you have only one solution at
    hand, and that is growing your own. These
    mushrooms are mainly grown on oak, but they can
    also be found growing on ironwood, poplars, sugar
    maple, yellow birch, and alder. Quality Shiitake
    mushroom Log is cultivated under controlled
    conditions.

Qualitative Approach . . .
  • As soon as you get your mushroom logs, you should
    soak them in water so that they remain submerged.
    The water for this purpose should be cold, and
    soaking should be done overnight. By this time,
    you should decide whether you want the logs to be
    grown inside or outside. Keep in mind that the
    mushroom is residing inside the wood. You will
    just be required to provide adequate shade and
    water them appropriately. Quality Shiitake
    mushroom Log can produce three to four flushes
    every year.

All About Soaking . . .
  • If you decide to grow the logs outside, then you
    will get the advantage of natural rainfall. Even
    you can use the sprinklers for this purpose. In
    the indoors arrangement, you can soak the logs
    overnight in cold water once every thirty days.
    You can use this technique if you are planning to
    grow outdoors, especially when there is a lack of
    rainfall. Ideally, nonchlorinated water should be
    used for soaking. For a twelve-inch log, a bucket
    containing five gallons of water will do the
    trick.

Development Of Pins . . .
  • Once you are done with the soaking, then you need
    to place these logs in a shady area. Harvesting
    becomes a lot easier when they are kept in an
    upright position. Use a paper bag for covering.
    You may even use a plastic bag or tarp for half
    covering. The objective of covering is to provide
    warmth to the logs and also retain moisture.
    Sprinkle water regularly until you see pins
    developing. As soon as you see the pins, you
    should take off the covers. If the pins start
    showing signs of dryness, then you can apply mist
    or soak them for half an hour.

The Phase Of Harvesting . . .
  • Within ten days, the mushrooms should have become
    flat while still retaining their concave shape.
    The ideal way of removing fungi is twisting the
    base. Avoid them if they become too mature
    because then they will tend to sporulate. In such
    cases, though, the mushrooms will be edible but
    will not be too tasty.
