Primarily in Russia, Chaga is a popular medicinal mushroom due to its anti-tumor compounds.
The chaga mushroom is primarily distributed in brich woods of northern asia (Russia - Siberia). In the past this mushroom was also used to make fire. Most important medicinal active substances are the anti-tumor compounds of Inonotus obliquus. Chaga also contains a high value of antioxitants. We suggest the preparation of tea from the dried fruiting bodies.
The inoculation of logs with mushroom cultures can be done during the whole year, if the logs are stored frost-protected while spawn run. According to species, mushrooms will fruit several years, till all nutrients of the wood have been consumed by the fungus.
For a perfect yield, the quality of the logs is essential! Please use hardwood (birch, elm, beech, hornbeam). Let the log dry for approx. 4 ľ 5 weeks after felling. For inoculation with the dowels the log have been preperated: duck for 3 days in water (log should be complete coverd with water). After this let the log dry for approx. 2 days in the sun. We recommend to use logs (with bark!) diameter approx. 20 -35 cm length 50 bis 80 cm.
