Australian Shiitake (Lentinula leteritia): A Cultivator's Delight
Ever heard of the Australian shiitake? Scientifically known as Lentinula leteritia, this mushroom is a gem for cultivators. Let me break it down for you:
Species: L. leteritia
Natural Habitat & Growth Patterns
The Australian shiitake thrives in woodlands, especially during the cooler months. It loves a moist environment with temperatures ranging between 55°F to 75°F. Interestingly, this mushroom forms symbiotic relationships with certain trees, aiding their growth while drawing nutrients.
When it comes to growing this beauty, hardwood is your best bet. Maintain a temperature of 70°F to 75°F for mycelial growth and drop it to 55°F to 60°F for fruiting. A humidity level of 90-95% and indirect light will do wonders. Fresh air exchange twice a day keeps contaminants at bay. And guess what? A cold shock can trigger fruiting!
