Shiitake!! Excuse me?!

Ok lets explain. The name shiitake originates from its Japanese name, shiitake. Shii is the Japanese name of the tree Castanopsis cuspidata that provides the dead logs on which it is typically cultivated, and take means “mushroom” So you feel like growing your own? Well, Green Renaissance, who we covered on a previous blog post, did a beautiful film on  Gary ‘The Mushroom Guy.’ Watch below to see how he did it.

Amazing isn’t it?
If you would like an easier method, then buy some Mushroom Factory Grow Kits. Easy to use, lots of fun!



Now you know what to do this coming weekend! Enjoy!
