Cut the felled logs about 1-1.2m long.

Put the sawdust plug spawn into holes. Styrofoam seal is attached to the plug spawn to prevent contamination.

Stack the inoculated logs 1m high for 1-2 months as you would do fire-wood.

When mycelia colonize around inoculation holes to a certain degree during spawn run, stack the logs again and let shi- itake mycelia spread over the logs.

Standing logs (A-frame stacking) aid the development of fruiting bodies.
