Dowel spawn is a wood dowel that has the mushroom mycelium growing inside it. It is used to inoculate dead tree stumps or logs. After drilling a hole in a log and tapping a dowel into it, the mushroom mycelium will grow from the dowel into the surrounding wood. Dowels are 5/16" diameter X 1" long.Most of the mushroom varieties grow best on newly cut hardwood or semi-hardwoods. A list of commonly used wood is included.(Most cannot be grown on Cypress, Juniper, Cedar, Redwood and Eucalyptus.) Dowels can be refrigerated for many weeks until used. Use 1-2 dowels per foot of log to be inoculated for best success. Inoculate only one type of mushroom on each log. Instructions on how to use them come with each packet.
