Oyster brood log?

On my morning walk in my local woods the other day, I found a birch branch with Oysters growing on it! I picked it up and carried it home, I will looking for more suitably sized branches to join the 'grower'. And hopefully the spores will engage some hold on the rest of the birch pile.

I picked another branch some weeks ago with Jews Ears on it, they're doing really well.

Will update as things progress and grow (hopefully)

Very Happy

I don't think you'll need to wait for the spores as I would have thought there's a good chance the mycelium would grow into the other logs if there's good contact.

Just keep the wood damp - the best way is to have good contact with the soil. Smile
