Description Shipping Information
Shiitake Tree in a Tray is our "Original Log Kit," designed in 1992. We consider it The Grandfather of our Shiitake Log Kit Family. Our largest log, 14-15 inches long, he resides in his own attractive tray, thrives in room light and room temperature and will grow mushrooms about every two months for 3-5 years.

Immersing your log in non-chlorinated cold water and then soaking it for 24 hours “shocks” it and starts the mushroom "fruiting" cycle. Mushrooms sprout in 6-10 days, yielding 1/4-1/3 pound or more. Then the log “rests” until the next fruiting, requiring soaking every two weeks in non-chlorinated room-temperature water. Expect a few mushrooms to start with, then increasingly larger yields as the log matures. In the second year he can be covered top to bottom with fresh, meaty shiitakes.

The Shiitake Tree in a Tray Kit makes a generous gift (especially when you add The Shiitake Sampler Cookbook for only $8.95 when shipped with a log.). It includes a ready-to-grow 14-inch hardwood log such as oak or gum and its own tray for soaking, fruiting and resting. Quick-start and detailed instructions and our Lost Creek Mushroom Farm recipe booklet with 8 recipes round out the kit. Shiitake Tree in a Tray is fully guaranteed to grow shiitake mushrooms.
