I'm growing shiitake mushrooms on blocks of straw. As they develop they take
on a "wavy" appearance. That is, they never quite flatten out. As well, the
flesh seems a bit thin. They taste great, just look funny. I'm curious to why
this would happen when using a straw substrate.
BTW-I'm using straw because I've not found a good source of hardwood sawdust
here in town...was also curious what would happen with straw.
