Cultivate shiitake indoors, anywhere cool, airy and with some light. Three blooms are produced simply by maintaining the necessary humidity and temperature. The substrate has a mixture of deciduous sawdust incubated and ready to produce.
Instructions for producing shiitake at home are very simple. To start fruiting we need to give a shock of moisture and for this we must carefully remove the plastic bag and immerse in water for 24 hours (the substrate floats and therefore put some weight to sink it).
Choose a cool and ventilated place, the ideal temperature is between 15-20ºC. Place the substrate in a tray or box, as we will moisten it and wet the surface where we place it. If you have a grid at the base, we will avoid contamination from excess moisture. We will keep the humidity with a sprayer several times to the day to about 30-40 cm of distance
In a few days the shiitake will begin to fruit, it is very important to keep the humidity during this process so that the mushrooms develop well so we will spray more often.) To collect the mushrooms it is recommended to turn the foot and pull them carefully.
The first flowering is the most important, practically 40-50% of what the substrate bag will produce. Once the first flowering is finished we will return to incite the production in about 15 days following the same steps.
When you receive the package you must keep it in the refrigerator until you start production
Do not place in direct sunlight or drafts.
THE TEMPERATURE SHOULD BE OF 15-20 º C THEREFORE IN SUMMER IT IS NOT RECOMMENDED TO PRODUCE UNLESS YOU MAY REACH THESE THRESHOLDS.
