My friend/elder/"pops" and I are starting our first innculation of shiitake mushrooms in oak logs and we are growing them indoors... we got into a bit of a discussion/debate on whether or not we should seal the ends of the logs with beeswax... he did anyway, and his logic is that if the ends are exposed then they will dry up quickly... But my logic is that they won't absorb the much needed moisture because the channeling inside the log only goes up and down from end to end..


are we pretty much screwed on this batch? Is it good to seal the ends of the log?

we're hanging them from the ceiling and have them stacked "log cabing style"... with no humidifier yet, so I'm taking care in continuing to mist them with a spray bottle.

seriously need advice asap. We are on day 3, important alterations must be taken care of soon. I understand fungi is very sensitive.

 Hey there everyone. Nice to meet y'all. New to this site, but not to mycology. For those of you interested in growing mushrooms on logs, here is a instruction sheet I made up for our mycology club. WRMS%20Dowel%20Spawn%20Instructions.pdf. Let me know if y'all have any other questions.

I have a question that needs answered if anyone knows....I bought some rye grain that had been inoculated with morel spores and you can barely see the white of where it has started to spawn.  How do I handle these to get a full spawn before planting?
