3.5kg Shiitake (Lentinula edodes) Sawdust Spawn

Sawdust spawn bag can be opened and put in a fruiting chamber and this will provide mushrooms. Furthermore, it can also be used to inoculate almost anything. It can be used to inoculate hardwood outdoors, but it can also be used to inoculate sawdust, grains and even agar. Although, inoculating agar with sawdust is not ideal, there is a good chance that it will work because both agar and sawdust are sterile products.

Please see our blogs covering more specific subjects about the fun world of growing mushrooms.


Shiitake (Lentinula edodes) is the most popular of all the gourmet mushrooms. The shiitake is a saprophyte mushroom, it grows on dead wood or trees. The hobbyist can grow this mushroom outdoors by inoculating logs or indoors by inoculating sterilized hard wood fuel pellets in bags. The shiitake mushroom is for the more experimented hobbyist. Fruiting the shiitake block takes more time and patience when compared to Pleurotus Ostreatus. The shiitake mycelium is a slow grower and is ready to fruit in about three months. This is one of the tastiest gourmet mushrooms.
