Easily grow your own Italian Phoenix Oyster Mushrooms for years to come. Italian Phoenix Oyster Mushroom Plug Spawn is wood dowels inoculated with the Italian Phoenix Oyster Mushroom species mycelium, and used to grow mushroom fruiting bodies on freshly cut logs or stumps. You will specifically need hardwood logs such as Alder, Ash, Birch, Bitternut, Cherry, Chestnut, Hophornbeam, Ironwood, Maple, Oak, Pecan, Sweet gum, Sycamore, Tulip poplar, Walnut, Willow. Italian Phoenix Oyster Mushrooms do not grow on conifers.

Simply drill 5/16" holes 1" deep to hammer the Italian Phoenix Oyster Mushroom plugs into. The holes should be drilled right before plugging them, and spaced about 4" apart. Logs should be roughly 6 inches in diameter and four feet long. They need to be freshly cut, or at least cut within the past 20 days. Avoid using logs with missing or split bark, try to find unpenetrated logs, except on the sides they were cut.

Italian Phoenix Oyster Mushroom Plug spawn can also be used to grow mushrooms on live trees, but should only be done strategically down branch where pruning is planned later. Our Italian Phoenix Oyster Mushroom plug spawn is made from hardwood fluted or spiral dowels.
