Shiitake Sawdust Spawn
Latin Name: Lentinula edodes
Fruiting Temperature: 55–75 °F
This is an all-weather strain. It can fruit from 50–80 °F but performs best at 58–60 °F. An ideal candidate for indoor cultivation on supplemented sawdust. Incubation time is about 6 weeks (on alder).

Orders of 1–4 units are generally shipped within 2–3 business days of ordering. For orders of 5–11 units, please contact us via phone or email to get an accurate estimate of turnaround time. Orders in excess of 11 units are considered a custom production run, requiring 4–6 weeks lead time. All orders are sent UPS Ground (approximately 5–7 days transit time, depending upon destination), unless otherwise arranged. Once an order is in production, Fungi Perfecti cannot accept order modifications or cancellations. Please contact us if you have any questions prior to ordering.
Please note: Unlike our ready-to-grow Mushroom Patches and Mushroom Plug Spawn, our Sawdust and Wood Chip Spawn does not come with instructions. It is assumed that the purchaser is sufficiently familiar with mushroom culture technique to utilize these cultures. The books Growing Gourmet & Medicinal Mushrooms and The Mushroom Cultivator are essential tools in this endeavor.
Please note: depending on a number of factors, it may be necessary to ship your order via an expedited shipping process in order to ensure the viability. If this is necessary, your order will be placed on hold until a Customer Service Representative can contact you to present your shipping options and costs.
Shipping to Hawaii
The Hawaii State Department of Agriculture has recently increased their restrictions on the importation of live mushroom mycelium into the islands. This affects the sale of Fungi Perfecti's Indoor and Outdoor Mushroom Patches, Plug Spawn for Log and Stump Cultivation, and Pure Mushroom Spawn and Cultures. Customers in Hawaii wishing to purchase any of these products will need to first apply for and receive an Import Permit from the HSDA Plant Quarantine Branch. Additionally, importation of our MycoGrow™ products is completely prohibited.
The permit can be downloaded in Adobe Acrobat format online here. If you have further questions, you can contact Fungi Perfecti or speak directly to Amy Takahashi at the Hawaii State Department of Agriculture, 1428 S. King Street, Honolulu, HI 96814. Phone: (808) 832-0589.
