Buy Plug Spawn
Fungi Ally Plug Spawn
Plug spawn is best for inoculating wood logs or stumps. Plug spawn is made of 1” birch dowels covered with mushroom mycelium. This type of spawn is easy to handle and no extra tools are necessary. Spawn run and inoculation tend to take a little bit longer but if you are doing 40 logs or less it is likely the best bet for you.
