Pioppino Mushroom Sawdust Spawn 2kg Bag (1PIOPMSSPN-1)


This Pioppino Mushroom Sawdust Spawn (Agrocybe aegerita), is made from food grade sawdust which is a waste stream from saw mills. Growing mushrooms on sawdust adds value to waste stream.  Saving sawdust from landfill and burning, results in environmental and social benefits.

The Sawdust Spawn bag weighs approximately 2kg and can be used to inoculate logs, stumps, totem poles and wood chip beds. Please refer to Paul Stamets book, “Growing Gourmet and Medicinal Mushrooms”, “Mycelium Running” and “The Mushroom Cultivator” for suggested use and compatible tree species.

Pioppino mushrooms are nutritious, medicinal and tasty. The flavor is like bacon and commonly used in Italian recipes and omelets. They can be preserved by dehydration.

They prefer mild conditions so it is best to grow them in winter and parts of spring and Autumn(16 – 22°C) fruiting temperature. They require a source of light similar to indirect sunlight.

They can be grown in warmer or cooler conditions. However frequent watering is required in warmer conditions. Fruits size and yields may vary on tree species used and climate conditions.
