Professionally Made Mushroom Spawn
This is the same spawn used for almost all of my work. Take advantage of professionally prepared spawns, save time and get growing bulk gourmet mushrooms, quickly!
Sawdust Spawn Basics
Sawdust spawn is fully colonized and ready to expand to more sawdust prepared for spawn use, or substrates prepared for fruiting. The main difference in spawn vs substrates is nutrition composition. With spawns, we add protein, with substrates we add nitrogen. This influences the growth of the mycelium positively with respect to the requirement.
1 6lb bag will comfortably inoculate 10-15 7lb sawdust bags. Sawdust spawn can also be used in lieu of plug spawn for inoculating wood logs for growing mushrooms outdoors in a more natural way. FreshCap Mushrooms has an excellent write up for inoculating logs for growing mushrooms. Skip to Step #2, replace plugs with sawdust spawn and you’re set.
