1 kg Chestnut / Cinnamon Cap (Pholiota adiposa) Grain Spawn

Grain Spawn is used to inoculate wheat straw or sawdust. It can be used to inoculate hardwood outdoors but it is not ideal since it will attract squirrels and other animals that will try to reach the grains as food source. It can also be used to start culture on agar or to expand more grains.
