Here are some reishi logs I inoculated in my Florida yard last year. I have had about 3 fruitings on these logs and have dried an entire bag of reishi for usage in teas. The picture on the right is of reishi that I sliced and dried. I basically purchased a 100 count bag of reishi dowel plugs from Fungi Perfecti and while I was preparing logs for shiitake inoculation, I drilled out about three shorter logs for the reishi. Now reishi do best in tropical and perhaps temperate regions. If your climate is cold, you would need a greenhouse to be able to grow them in your area. The inoculation and maintenance procedure is actually quite simple and you can refer to my shiitake blog for details.
