Next up Shiitake mushrooms.

Bag of Wet Sawdust with Shiiake spawn

This is a bag of wet pasteurized sawdust. It’s in a plastic bag with a air filter so the bag can breath without becoming infected with something else. The Shiitake has grown all over the sawdust and you can see it’s forming something that looks like pop corn. To get it to fruit I’m supposed to put it in the fridge for 5 days, give it a bath, and then keep it at near attempt to keep it at 100% humidity. I’m thinking of building a high humidity box to keep it in.
