Description

Chicken of the Woods (Laetiporus sulphureus) produces large, bright orange, multi-layered fruiting bodies with a texture reminiscent of chicken. When cooked, these mushrooms are juicy, succulent, and meaty with a mild, lemony aroma. Chicken of the woods can be difficult to cultivate and is due to this fact recommended for enthusiast growers who have had some success with other more advanced species or need to experiment and check out new methods. Because this species is not a strong competitor, it requires a different cultivation strategy and works best when logs are steam sterilized, incubated and colonized in filter patch bags, then removed from bags and partially buried in a shaded spot. Inoculation: Chicken of the Woods does best in oak logs. After colonization period in filter patch bags above ground, logs will have to be partially buried under 2 inches of topsoil. The mushrooms will fruit from logs and emerge out of the soil. *It will have to be noted that Chicken of the Woods is prone to being out-competed by other fungi and is not a reliable producer without first treating your logs. To limit variables, we strongly suggest you sterilize 8″ by 8″ segments of oak log in a pressure cooker or steam sterilizer before inoculation and incubate your log segments for a couple of months in sealed filter patch bags until they are completely colonized. Remove them from the bag and partially burying them in a shady location You’ll be able to sterilize your log segments in a 22 qt or larger pressure cooker such as an All-American pressure cooker. Spawn is living and perishable. If you don’t plan to use immediately, You’ll be able to refrigerate your spawn for up to 6 months.
