Mushroom Logs

Plug spawn is very easy to use and requires tools that are found in most households. You will need a proper size drill bit to drill holes, a hammer to tap the plugs into the holes, and a paintbrush or wax dauber to apply melted wax to cover them. To easily drill holes to the proper depth each time, fit a depth stop on your 8 mm (5/16″) drill bit or purchase a special high speed 8.5 mm drill bit with built-in depth stop.

Sawdust spawn requires the purchase some special tools, but is a more economical option if you have lots of logs to inoculate year after year. Drill 12 mm holes in your logs. For fastest drilling, use a 12 mm drill bit with built-in depth stop with an adapter to convert your angle grinder to a high speed drill. Fill the inoculation tool with sawdust spawn, and “punch” the pellet into the hole. Cover with melted wax using a wool dauber.

The Key is to Keep Cold or Delay Shipping

Refrigeration will delay fruiting for a month or more, and a cold dark basement will slow them for 2-3 weeks.  A sticker on your parcel will alert the recipient to keep it cold.

We encourage you to order early to avoid the uncertainties of the seasonal postal rush, and delay shipping.  To delay shipping, select a date on the checkout page, found directly under your total order $ value.   If you don’t select a date, we will ship in 1-2 business days.

The elves at our family farm are doing our best to keep everything in stock, but we request your understanding just in case we run out and substitute a similar product in order to ship on time.  

Consider also the option of a non-perishable gift, like booksmushroom hot chocolate, or a gift card so that your loved one can choose a living gift when timing is best for them.
