This is an extension of the lab. It is the place where we make bulk substrate, inoculate it with the grain spawn, and where the ‘bags’ incubate.
- Once a grow bag is made, Oyster mushrooms usually take about 2-4 weeks before the bag starts pinning.
- However, shiitake can take longer than 3 months to incubate.
- Once a bag starts pinning, we move them into the grow rooms.
- The incubation area is well insulated. In the winter the heat generated from the colonising bags will warm the space so that only a small amount of supplemental heating is required.
