Plug Spawn



At Forest Organics we produce all of our own plug spawn from scratch in our sterile lab. Our sterilized birch plugs are spiral grooved and fully colonized with the mushroom mycelium of your choice.

Plug spawn is mycelium grown into hardwood dowels which can be easily tapped into holes drilled into a log. It's a natural choice for small projects because it is easy to use, requires no special tools and is available in small quantities. Use a 5/16" drill bit and 5/16' stop collar set at about 1 inch, or an 8.5mm bit with stop to drill the logs, and a hammer to tap them in. Once the log is inoculated, the plug is sealed with wax to prevent them from drying out. See our Outdoor Mushroom kits that have all supplies included

Plug spawn is extremely durable and we recommend it for fall inoculations in cold climates, stump inoculations, and shipments being sent overseas. It is also a reliable medium to carry slower growing fungal species. Although it takes nearly 30% longer than sawdust spawn to colonize a log, it is an excellent spawn type choice for small projects and beginners.

Plug spawn is used with natural logs and stumps for Shiitake, Oyster, Lion's Mane, Reishi, Maitake, Turkey Tail, Mesina (aka horses hoof), Pioppino, Cicken-of-the-woods, and Nameko mushroom cultivation. 

50 plugs will inoculate very well one  40" long log,4"- 8" in diameter or 8"-18" diameter Stump
