They are also very nutritious, containing lots of B vitamins and other substances that appear to lower cholesterol and boost the immune system. While they are an expensive delicacy, relatively new to the Western world, people in China and Japan have been enjoying Shiitakes for thousands of years. Package of 100 wooden dowel plugs.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask a Question
  • Do you need any special equipment to grow mushroom dowels? Or are they "planted" outside?

    Typically these dowels will be gently hammered into a fresh cut log that has been pre-drilled. They can be spread in a sterlie growth medium outdoors as well.

  • How many mushrooms will one dowel grow?

    A great question! In perfect conditions, over time, a dowel would spread through the whole of the substrate and produce as many as possible. In the real world however competition for food is intense in mushroom-land, so you use several dowels to make sure the Shiitake strain remains the dominant one in the wood.

  • Does the type of wood matter? And are these perennials or annuals?

    Shiitake requires a wood substrate (not Cedar), preferably pine or oak, but will also grow in alder. If cultivated in bags or a bed, steralized sawdust or woodchips work too.
