You mean you've inoculated living trees with these two mushrooms?

Thanks, yup, i'm reffering to the spent substrate (after you collect several mushroom flushes from it you'll get waste). Indeed, that's a good idea to reuse that as spawn -this particularly works for oyster mushrooms,but what do with it if you grew lion'mane or shiitake on it. For these mushrooms you would need mold/bacterial free spawn (not the case with oysters).

I know of some people growing worms on mushroom substrate waste, others use it as fertilizer in their gardens..What else could I do with it? What about shiitake blocks waste? -often get moldy

Cool! easy to grow those mushrooms like that. Try growing some milky mushroom like that - in plus you'll need to add some dirt on top. Should work too!

I make the slurry as Bryant described it in plus I ad some woodash to increase pH. Lots of fungi love growing on burnt wood

Your method should work, especially if you used hardwood. Yup they look pretty dry to me, those logs might need more than two days to soak. Keep em covered with sand and make sure they don't dry out.

Austin you'll find here some info on how you could get zero waste after mushroom growing.

However, when you use plastic you'll get plastic in the end. You want to get rid of it use some plastic eating fungi.

I would wait until the temp drops to 80 or so. 90 is too high and your mycelium might die by the time you get back. Anyway make sure you grow em in the shade.

You may use anything that is colonized with mycelium as inoculum for your logs, just make sure that is your choice mushroom and not something else. When you purchase plugs and trust the source then you'll get the mushrooms you expect, but if you play around without knowing exactly what's colonizing that piece of wood or cardboard then you might get somethin else.
