grifola frondosa mushrooms(Maitake)
Hi, My last natural place for sheeps head mushrooms was just wiped out.I have just ordered both maitake plugs and a complete maitake growing kit. I have a 10'x10' crawlspace under my front porch(No Light) and a large shaded space under my deck. I also have numerous places on my property with oak stumps and deadwood.I have experience in vegatable gardening indoors, greenhouse and outdoors, but never with mushrooms. I would like to get as much info on both indoor(supplemental lighting , misters etc.) and outdoor gardening for this type of mushroom. Thanks Much Ken
Here are a few extension publications to try first to get a background:

Contact the Chester County master gardener program, their county produces most of the mushrooms in the US should you have further questions.
