This is for one bag of fully colonized Nameko mushroom sawdust spawn ready to go. The quantity is enough to inoculate one hardwood log 40" long and 2-5" in diameter.
sawdust spawn consist of mycelium grown into hardwood sawdust. You will need a drill bit size 7/16" with 7/16" stop collar, or if you have a 12 mm bit with stop that will work.
Note: sawdust spawn is prone to drying out pretty fast, after packing the spawn into your holes you want to seal the holes with wax as soon as possible, you can use cheese wax, beeswax, or paraffin wax to seal the holes, you want to drill your holes1 inch deep. This is where the stop collar comes in handy, See our direction manual for detailed inoculation instructions.
Nameko or butterscotch mushroom is a variety of mushroom with a bright orange cap and a mild flavor. Nameko mushrooms are cultivated in Japan, where they are very popular, and they are exported to various regions of the world to meet consumer demand. Some Japanese restaurants have dishes with nameko mushrooms, and these mushrooms are also popular in Japanese home cooking.
The nameko mushroom grows in tight clusters of white stems, and the caps tend to be crowded together as a result of the crowded growth habit of the stems. When fresh, the caps have a shiny appearance, and a slightly gelatinous feel. As the mushrooms are cooked, they develop a jellylike texture which can surprise some consumers; this trait makes them ideally suited for certain stir fries and traditional Japanese soups.
