Chicken of the Woods Mushroom
Growing Log Kit
Fruiting Temperature: 60 80 F
Ideal Wood Types: Douglas fir, spruce
Chicken of the Woods (Laetiporus conerificola) grows on softwoods including hemlocks, Douglas Fir, true firs, and spruce. Stumps, rather than cut logs, are the recommended candidate for inoculation; logs can be used and buried vertically in sand, sawdust or gravel after incubation. Producing a multi-layered, shelf-like mushroom (sometimes called wood conks), Chicken of the Woods has an easily distinguished orange mycelium. Given the right conditions, mushrooms will form in 6 - 12 months; the stump will begin to decompose, and mushrooms will fruit for several years thereafter

Items you will need to provide: Power Drill, and a 5/16" Drill Bit, and a fresh hardwood log / Stump.
