Default Anyone grow mushrooms on oak logs

There is a local business who sells plugs treated with spores. Does anyone ever do this?

Yeah, my brother in law started that 20 years ago , in one of his get rich quick schemes , going to grow shitake mushrooms and sell to grocery stores . It got to labor intensive , cutting sweet gum logs and stacking them & drilling thousands of holes , not something a desk jockey is use to .

My neighbor did it with oyster mushrooms. It worked, they looked right, but they did not taste exactly like the wild popple jacks I find in the spring woods though.

Lions Mane is one that supposedly is the only food that supports the regrowth of myelin,
so is great to consume for parkinsons and/or other diseases where the nervous system is attacked.
here is a little article that seems like a good way to start.
There are many commercial type operations on you tube as well.

I have a brother that tried it in oak logs and it does work. Shitake are Japanese mushrooms. Done right it does produce lot's of mushrooms. Done wrong you loose your arse! Brother lost his arse!
