Spring is here! Time to start your submerged fermentation for expanding naturalized mycelium (wild mushroom patch) or to inoculate with lab grown spawn.
Air dry for 2 hours, 2 inches deep and recommended to rake the wood chips mid drying to speed the process before inoculation.
Fruiting should occur in the fall, recommended expansion rates are 1:10 to 1:50 ratio.
Happy Mycelium Running! - Paul
PLEASE NOTE: this is an microbial soup so wearing gloves for this process is highly recommended and even so thoroughly wash your hands afterwards. If you have cuts or immuno-compromised, be extra careful.
