Would anyone out there happen to know if reishi
(Ganoderma lucidum) can be grown on supplimented
conifer sawdust? I understand the closly related
G. tsugae is usually found on conifers, but not
so G. lucidum...
Stamets reports that Reishi can be grown on a
"wide variety of soft-wood and hard-wood sawdust",
but no mention of straight soft-wood sawdust and chips.
I'm thinking of doing a small scale Reishi project,
but the only industrial wastes up here in the great
white north (Maine) seem to be generated from pines
On a related note....does anyone know of a machine
that is designed to generate coarse sawdust from bulk
wood? I'm thinking of some sort of chipper/shredder
that you feed a log into one end and out the other
comes an endless supply of sawdust!
Thanks for your help...
