Growing Mushrooms takes a lot of effort, but can be quite rewarding. One of the more exotic varities – the Shiitake mushroom, is usually cultivated on dead logs. You can now grow these mushrooms at home easily. The Shiitake Mushroom log is a gourmet’s dream come true. The log needs water and a cool dark place to grow Shiitake mushrooms. The log can keep producing a crop of mushrooms every 8-12 weeks for years to come. It is also a great way to impress your guests.
