I want to have success with Lion's Mane. I tried Oak logs some years ago and got nothing. I need info on using wood pellets and plastic bags (I have a large basement). This sounds like a faster way to get results than logs. Put me on to a link if you can or share your ideas.

    To begin with, a grower will have to wait for two years after inoculation before fruiting commences, rather than just one year in the case of shiitake. – Ken Graham Feb 24 at 23:48
  • I am aware of the long wait and I read somewhere that it could be lowered in a plastic bag / straw set up in a basement. That would sure beat waiting two years for a dud. PS- I saw False identity and thought they were referring to me. I tried to fix the problem for a long time, I'm new here. – Rick Smith Feb 26 at 13:23
  • fungi perfecti sells an indoor kit... that is based on alder chips and sawdust in a spawn bag... I suspect you could do the same thing... – Grady Player Jun 26 at 15:33
