Overview of mushroom growing methods:
Inoculated plugs ( Impfdübel )
Inoculated plugs are used to grow mushrooms on logs. Holes are drilled into the logs and then the plugs are inserted using a hammer. Please see shiitake.de/eng for growing instructions and a list of suitable wood types.
Inoculated grain ( Pilzbrut: Körnerbrut, Strohbrut)
Inoculated grain is used to grow mushrooms on logs or on straw. Logs: Slots are cut into the logs using a chain saw and the grain is then filled into the slots. Normally, a slot is cut half way through the log, one at each end of the log. The grain-filled slots must be protected with packaging tape.
Growing on straw: Only oyster mushroom varieties and wine-red Stropharia can be grown on straw.
Hobby-kits: For fast growing mushroom results we sell kits for culture blocks for various mushroom types.
