Description

Shiitake - Lentinula edodes

Syn.: Agaricus edodes, Shii-Take, Shaingugu, Hua Gu, Qua Gu


Mycorestoration use against:

PCB Polychlorinated biphenyls (cancer-causing chemical chlor compounds? common use: i.e. transformers, capacitors, hydraulic installation s, and as a diluent / softener for lacquer, sealing compounds, insulating and plastic products.)


General procedure:

Mushrooms use strong enymes to decompose primary structural components of wood (lignin and cellulose). The same enzymes can be used to absorb and neutralise heavy metals and toxins, and removing them permanently.

Mycelium (spawn) of a convenient mushroom species is distributed over the contaminated area. Mix the spawn with fresh basic material (i.e. wood chips) and cover the source of toxication extensive. Same procedure as Laying of a mushroom bed.

While the mushroom mycelium grows all over the contaminated soil, toxins are absorbed or decomposed. The mushoom will accumulate this toxins in the fruiting bodies. Therefor please dispose them after harvest. This is the way how you get your garden clear of toxins and heavy metal!
