Shiitake (Lentinula Edodes)
Our Certified Organic Shiitake substrate is fully maturated (colonized, buckled and browned) inside of the bag which allows for contamination-resistant growing. Simply remove the plastic bag from around the 10 pound block, place them on your shelves upside down and hose them down twice daily with cold water until primordia form, then allow your humidification system to be the primary humidifier for the developing Shiitake mushrooms.
Helpful Cultivation Notes:
- Fluctuating humidity between 70-90 constantly can allow for proper evaporation in fruit body development
- co2 concentration will allow for different fruit body formations to develop (smaller and bigger caps) PPMS can vary between 1000 and 600, but be conscious of what else your growing in the same room
- Our primary Shiitake strains are 3782 and 3790 from Mycelia BVBA
