Good call

Randy. I thought that the wood the chips were composed of might have had mycelium imbedded in them from the trees that produced them. That would be similar to purchasing sawdust spawn inoculated with P. ostreatus mycelium and watch it grow.

You’re right.

Any chance there’s an old stump or some roots under those chips?

Two questions

Did local tree trimmers deposit the chips? Is there a decent percent of Maple in the chips? At this time of the year we find P. ostreatus -and during warm spells in winter-on wounds of Maple trees in Northeastern Pa.

dang!
