Growing Shittake Mushrooms on Wood Logs

Shiitake logs will fruit naturally after a soaking rain when they are ready, but it's better to induce fruiting by soaking two or three logs in cold water for 24 hours and then giving each soaked log a solid knock with a hammer, which seems to excite the fungi.

Growing Shittake Mushrooms on Wood Logs

Unlike many mushrooms which grow on compost or manure-based potting media, 

shiitake mushrooms grow on logs. 

You'll need to obtain or cut logs (“bolts”) about 3 to 6-inches across, and 3 to 4 feet long. 

For ease of handling, consider the 3-foot lengths for the thicker logs.

Oak logs, especially those in the white oak group, are preferred species. 

They decompose slowly, providing several years of food for the shiitakes–thus offering a longer harvest period.
