b. Shiitake Starter Kits

Shiitake Starter Kit – plug spawn – MP510 (wide range)

The MP510 wide-range temperature strain is extremely popular for shiitake cultivation indoors or outdoors in natural logs. Fruiting range is 55-80°F.
Yields large mushrooms with thick flesh, tolerant to hot and cool weather. Has a fast spawn run, 6-9 months from inoculation to first harvest.

The starter kit includes 300 spawn plugs, 1 lb. wax, 1 wax dauber, and detailed directions. This is enough to inoculate 10 logs of average size 40″ long x 4″ diameter.

Note: Inoculated logs keep fruiting for several years without the need to re-inoculate. This is true for all strains and species of mushrooms.
