The commercial outdoor grower has used mushroom plugs formany years. Now the MUSHROOM MAN brings it home to you!

 Log cultivation is usually done with logs 4 - 6 inches indiameter with a length of 3 to 4 feet. Oak is particularly good for thecultivation of most mushrooms though many other species work well also: poplar, aspen, sugar maple, willow, alder and birch among others.  Each plug is 5/16" diameter and inserted 1 inch into the log/stump.  So, you willneed a drill bit 5/16" diameter.         


 When inserting plugs each should be covered in organicwax.  We sell soy wax that is perfect formushroom plugs.

Indoor & Outdoor Mushroom Kits and Mushroom Plugs for mushroom gardens!

When I purchased my first mushroom kit in 1997 I was hooked! There wasn't much information about growing mushrooms at that time and the internet was just taking off. There was something about mushrooms growing to maturity in a matter of a few days that was very exciting to me.

​Over the next 25 years I have grown countless varieties and learned many techniques that I would like to pass on to others before my time on earth is finished. Take a look at our mushroom kits and plugs here on Foraged. If you are interested in cultures, growing equipment and workshops please visit

If you have any questions I will be happy to answer you personally.
