grifola frondosa (Maitake) mushrooms

Asked April 26, 2013, 3:56 PM EDT

Hi, My last natural spot for sheepshead mushrooms was just wiped out . I have just ordered both Maitake plugs and a grow kit online. I have a 10'x10' crawl space and a large shaded portion of space under my deck. I also have numerous places on my property with some oak stumps and deadwood.I have gardened indoors, greenhouse and outdoors, but never mushrooms. I am looking for any info for both indoor( supplemental lighting, misters etc) and outdoor(stumps, buried deadwood etc.) Thanks Much Ken Mosi
