Agrocybe aegerita (piopino mushroom) is very common in our parks and gardens. Generally, when a poplar or maple trunk has an injury, small clusters of brown mushrooms appear with a delicate but quite fungal flavor.
Piopino mushroom grows on a wide variety of substrates, straw from cereals, hardwoods, and other agricultural and forest waste with cellulose and lignin. Our mycelium is sold in cereal grains (may contain target-corn, oats, rye and wheat - for a special composition, contact us). We sell in bags of 4 kg, 2 kg and sachets of 250 - 300 g. The latter are ideal for those who want to do a little experiment at home.
To inoculate trunks, especially poplar, we recommend the use of dowels due to the simplicity and speed of the process. The dowels that are available in bags of 2000, 1000 and 100 units are sold in polypropylene bags with a micropore filter and can be kept cold for a few months.
The mycelium is also available in cartons of about 3 kg of hardwood sawdust, which is indicated to inoculate wood logs or blocks of supplemented sawdust production.
