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


Want to grow your own mushrooms on logs outdoors? This is just the thing! Each bag contains 100 (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.

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 any will fruit in the next season.

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.

NOTE: The "season" for plug spawn is usually spring. Expect more stock closer to then!
