Shitake Mushroom Home Growing Kit
Indoor Shiitake Mushroom Growth & Harvest - How Shiitake Mushrooms Grow at Home
EDIBLE SHIITAKE MUSHROOM GROWING KITS - SHIITAKE (SHITAKE) MUSHROOM LOGS

A flush (crop) of mushrooms from a Shiitake Mushroom Logs may produce:

1.  Many smaller mushrooms as seen on the right

2.  Several large mushrooms as seen in the four pictures (A - D) below

3. Many larger mushrooms as seen in the rotating image below.

Basically, whether there are many or several Shiitake Mushrooms on a log, the total weight of mushrooms is often the same.  The difference in number may be due to care of the Shiitake Log and environmental conditions in the home.

WE GUARANTEE THAT, CONDITIONS PERMITTING, OUR LOGS ARE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING MUSHROOMS IF PROPERLY MANAGED. WE CAREFULLY CHECK EACH STRAIN OF SPAWN WE DISTRIBUTE. IF WE FIND THAT ANY BATCH OF SPAWN IS INCAPABLE OF PRODUCING MUSHROOMS, WE WILL REPLACE YOUR SPAWN FREE OF CHARGE.
  Each kit may produce up to a pound of mushrooms in 2 to 4 crops (mushroom flushes).  Oyster mushrooms need plenty of fresh air to develop normally. High carbon dioxide levels from mushroom metabolism will accumulate in sealed growing environments and can reduce cap size and elongate stems severely.  The total number of mushrooms you can expect to get on each log may vary from log to log, and depend on your care of the log and the environmental conditions in your home.

These Kits can be held for 1 or 2 weeks, but are designed to be started when received!
Each kit may produce 9 - 14 oz of shiitake mushrooms in 1 to 4 crops (mushroom flushes).

Boost Your Immunity with Gourmet Mushrooms

"The shiitake mushroom proves looks aren’t everything: What could be scruffier or more taciturn-looking as it hunkers down on your grocer’s produce shelf? Don’t be so quick to judge, though. This mushroom-with-an-attitude is a study in contrasts: earthy but ethereal, unimpressive but magnificent. It performs in a cast of potent fungi known as the medicinal mushrooms, which number more than 200 worldwide and include others of sterling repute, such as reishi and maitake. Unlike the Asians and Europeans who have cherished these mushrooms for millennia, we in North America are just beginning to discover their merits.

Stupendous Shiitake
Our friend the shiitake (Lentinula edodes) is one you’ve probably sampled. This mushroom’s meaty texture and rich, woodsy flavor make it a culinary favorite in any dish calling for mushrooms, and it is especially good in meatless cuisine. Originally from China, shiitakes have been cultivated in North America since at least the 1980s.

Shiitake protects against certain cancers, tumors and infections—the latter through antiviral and antibiotic actions. How shiitake executes its anticancer campaign is not fully understood, but a constituent known as lentinan appears pivotal. Widely studied, lentinan from shiitake is an approved drug in Japan, used mainly as an adjunct to conventional cancer chemotherapy. Controlled clinical trials using injected lentinan with standard chemotherapy show it is effective against stomach, colorectal and prostate cancers. In 1999, a study published in Hepatogastroenterology found that lentinan increased one-year survival of gastric-cancer patients to 49 percent compared to no increase without lentinan. And a trial conducted at the Saitama Cancer Center in Japan reported that five-year survival of patients with metastatic prostate cancer was 43 percent with lentinan treatment versus 29 percent without it.

Avoiding skin cancer
Cutting-edge herb research, common-sense prevention...
Medicinal mushrooms enhance the body’s general resilience and vigor, stimulate the immune system, and confer antioxidant benefits. Since the 1960s, science has been catching up to tradition, and many clinical studies now demonstrate that these mushrooms do indeed shore up the body’s defenses against such afflictions as cancer, infection and heart disease."
