Maitake Plug Spawn, Grifola frondosa
Matures: 60-90 days
Fruiting season(s): Fall.
Wood Types: oak, elm, or honey Locust
Maitake grows prolifically on oaks
throughout the temperate regions of eastern North America. Stumps or
logs may be inoculated; after the incubation period, the logs should be
partially buried, horizontally, to initiate fruiting (we strongly
recommend using oak, elm or maple). Fruitings most frequently arise at
or near the stump/soil interface. Two or three years will often pass
before fruitings occur. This delicious mushroom is also heralded in
Asian cultures for its immune-system support.
Includes approximately 100 plugs.
