Hi all,

I'm going to be removing a plum tree and replanting with an apple.
I'd like to leave the stump in place and grow mushrooms on it.
Which type of mushroom will grow on plum wood? I've had trouble googling an answer.

Thanks in advance.

Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum is found on plum trees/stumps in Japan. Field & Forest Products states that Reishi can be grown on oak or plum logs. I've had good results growing Reishi on fresh oak logs, but I have not tried plum yet.
