1.0 out of 5 stars Not impressed at all Oct. 1 2013

The instructions are very poor. I've tried it and nothing happened, no mushrooms. As far as I'm concern it was a complete waste of money and time.

I am so excited to have this although it seems to be a little difficult to get it started and I am finding that the top of the log is growing mould I don't know if this is normal or not. I hope that it starts to produce mushrooms soon.

A shiitake mushroom log once impregnated takes from 6 months to bear fruit.
It can take longer if conditions are not meet with, moisture and heat.
Usually you drill then impregnated the hole and seal with wax. This whole procedure should be done as sterile as possible.
Keep your log in a shaded area with adequate air circulation. If a black or green mould appear, wipe mould with a diluted bleached rage. Mist your log every couple of days to keep log moist but not wet.
I have not tried this product from here, but have had cultured packs which are a ready to go mushroom farm.
my experiences are with The Shiitake(Lentinula edodes), The oyster mushroom( Pleurotus ostreatus), The Enokidake (Flammulina velutipes), maitake (Grifola frondosa). Hope this help you, and future purchasing people.

This idea seemed like a great idea for a gift for a hard-to-buy for dad. He is an amazing gardener and 92 years old. The log arrived in a timely fashion, but without instructions. However, upon e-mailing the company, they were quick to remedy the situation and very helpful. He has not started the log yet so I have no review on performance yet, but the company had great customer service!
