Thank you k12357.

I think we have all the video collection of that bearded-dude  ^_^

But that video explains the culture already in plastic bags. What I am trying to know, is the best way (more secure) to colonize jars, to multiply the spawn, and later, to use that jars to colonize the plastic bags...

Simplifying: the best substrate to use in jars to multiply spawn!  -_-

This week-end I check our first logs (inoculated in the beginning of March, so with 2 months and a half aged). Only one log has a white spot with 3 cm's radius... Shouldn't they be more colonized? Is this because our small use of pellets for each log?

Again, THANK YOU! ;)

I couldn't explained it better Juhha! :)

One more thing: we are going to try to multiply the shittakke spawn using the PF-TEK technique. Using vermiculite and whole rice flour (I just bought whole rice and crush it) and putting some spawn in it, I should have in some time a inoculated jar. So, I will then, divide it again for others jars, and so on, so on...

PS: Is it possible to put wood pellets in an inoculated jar, and so, inoculate them?  :huh:

I hope (again  :rolleyes:) we are doing everything accordingly the masters technique  ^_^

Please, comment!!

(...) He was using red oak upper limb logs only about 5-6 inches in diameter. Yes he waxed and inoculated much heavier than those of yours shown. (...)

We have now, a second shipment of oak logs, that Juhha got, and there are a lot of logs with that diameter. Of course we are going to inoculate them as well. Nothing goes to trash  ^_^
Thanks for the contacts areallyfunguy, all information is rich and valid!!

We made 3 types of mushrooms: Shiitake, pleurottus and "Lyon's head".

The logs were cut from a tree that fall down with the wind 2/3 weeks ago.
Why do we wax the inoculation points? never understood it...
Should I spray a little water in the logs?

Same day we inoculate those logs of the pictures (last Friday) we cut some very small logs and put a pellet on each one of them, which I putted inside a plastic bag after spraying them with a little water.
Today I opened the bags to see if they were dry, and there was already some white spots in the cut edges... I am going to take some photos and put them here ;)

Recently, me and a friend, inoculated some Oak logs:

After inoculating and waxed the inoculation points:

and a inoculation point detail:

Is it everything o.k.? It's the first time we are doing this, so normally, there should be some mistakes... If someone could "criticize" it will be welcome ;)

PS: it's indoor, in a wine cellar/mill in granitic stone. Region: Portugal
