I can't find any info on google as to what kind of mushrooms will grow on bamboo shafts (not chips or sawdust) so I'm assuming nobody does this?
I'm sure reishi will grow on bamboo since I have found it growing wildly on decaying bamboo rhizomes, but reishi is a secondary decomposer (right?)
Spliting bamboo open, putting a spoonful of spawn between each joint and zip tying it back together would be much less labor intensive than traditional log culture (and the material is much more available in Taiwan) but I can't find anyone else doing this.
I'm all for learning from experience, but i would rather use someone else's experience than start from square one myself. Anyone have any insight into using bamboo shafts for "log culture"?
I thought just as i was reading this that since there would be no drilling and filling (just splitting and knitting) this might be a great way to employ exhausted substrate, filling the hollow reeds with whats left over or even filling them up with exhausted bamboo shafts from the previous batch.
