Shiitake Mama! is 10" long and our most popular kit. She will grow fresh, organic shiitakes every two months or so for 3-5 years. This is an economical way to start growing your own shiitake mushrooms and makes a good gift.

Keep the log inside like a plant or outside in shade. Immersing the log in non-chlorinated cold water and then soaking it for 24 hours “shocks” it and starts the mushroom "fruiting" cycle. Mushrooms sprout in 6-10 days, yielding 2-4 ounces or more. Then the log “rests” until the next fruiting, requiring soaking every two weeks in non-chlorinated room-temperature water. Expect a few mushrooms to start with, then increasingly larger yields as the log matures. In the second year the log can be covered top-to-bottom with fresh shiitakes.

Our Shiitake Mama! Log Kit includes a 10-inch ready-to-grow hardwood log such as oak or gum, quick-start and detailed instructions, and our Lost Creek Mushroom Farm recipe booklet. Shiitake Mama is fully guaranteed to grow shiitake mushrooms.

Include the Shiitake Sampler Cookbook with 51 great shiitake recipes for only $8.95. It adds happy value to your gift!
