I have some King Oysters getting stuck into some Bluegum (E. Globulus) chips, and the Shiitake blocks. The 'log' is a tube, 300mm (flat) width so ~210mm diameter, air holes care of a hand held spur wheel, and the myc. has just started colonising the chips. (I'll think about fruiting holes when it is colonised.) I 'logged' it 3 days ago.

Then there are the shiitake blocks, wrapped in plastic. They are getting stuck into bluegum as well.

Can you explain the shiitake blocks? Are they 5lb bags with hardwood sawdust pellets? Do you just inoculate those? I’m getting into gourmet and it’s like totally starting over because they are all so different!

They were in sterilised bags and I removed the blocks from the bags once they were completely colonised (and contam. resistant) and wrapped in plastic pallet wrap and put outside in the grow tent.

I sterilised the woodchips, then innoculated them with grain spawn.

 

ed: They are getting stuck into bluegum chips like you sometimes see as softfall in playgrounds, etc.

Kings seem to like globulous. I've thought of E. Grandis but that doesn't grow around here...

Kings continuing to colonise, and Shiitake starting a brown crust (?) I'll see how they go.

I have a friend who's never grown before, so I thought I might give him a start...

Pleurotus oestreatus in all 3. Bluegum chips in the 'logs' and pea straw in the basket.

Does anyone have any good suppliers of hardwood fuel pellets?
