Shiitake grows in cluster on the decaying wood of deciduous trees, such as shii,
chestnut, oak, maple, beech and others. It begins with a dark brown to black cap
that becomes lighter and more convex as it ages. The stem is light brown with a
smooth texture. It likes warm temperatures and lots of humidity. It is a great
mushroom to grow as once a log is producing, it will often fruit for years!
This particular strain of shiitake will grow optimally in temperatures ranging from
40 to 60 degrees Fahrenheit.
