Plug Spawn Inoculation Methods
Plug Spawn Inoculation
Logs should be 3’’ to 8’’ in diameter and can be as long as you would prefer, though they are easiest to relocate when they are 30’’ to 50’’ long.
For initial log colonization wood can be stacked like firewood in a shady area of forest. At this stage stacks should be kept low to the ground where it is more humid yet out of direct contact with the forest floor. A pallet or pieces of scrap wood work well for this. After colonization period is finished, restack the logs in a log-cabin fashion for easy harvesting and airflow. Do not let your logs dry out! Place in a shady part of your garden or in the woods. If there is a prolonged dry spell during the summer it is best to spray logs with a hose.
Any size stumps can be inoculated but they should be located in a shady environment. Make sure you know what species of tree the stump came from!
