Mushroom Dowel Plug Spawn For Log Growing - 100/1000 count

Sorry, this item has sold.

Want to grow your own mushrooms on logs outdoors? This is just the thing! Each bag contains 100 or 1000 (slightly more, usually) beech dowel plugs, 5/16" x 1", ready for log inoculation. The plugs are fully colonized and ready to use on arrival, although it's recommended to refrigerate until use. You will need a 5/16" drill bit, a mallet to insert the plugs, and sealing wax to protect the spawn plugs from the elements. Any wax is fine; paraffin, beeswax, soy wax, etc.

Logs should be fresh-cut or no more than two months old, and appropriate to your species, generally hardwood, 1.5-2 feet long and 5-7" wide. 100 plugs is enough to inoculate approximately 3 logs. Logs should be kept in shade and be kept moist in hot and dry weather. Some species may produce in as little as a few months, but many will fruit in the next season.

Please contact us if you plan to purchase more than two or three 100ct bags - you may be able to save quite a lot on postage, Etsy is not great at calculating it as it assumes each will be sent separately.

Some plugs will ship immediately, some will be made to order depending on stock.

A guide to using dowel plug spawn can be found here:

The plugs will ship via Expedited Parcel (or optionally Xpresspost) shipping. Please note that the extra weight charge for 1000ct bags is included in the price.
