for sealing spawn holes or food grade wax such as cheese wax. Do not use wax containing paraffin, such as candle wax.
Melt the wax to a soft pliable consistency - not molten liquid , just soft and pliable. Pouring bubbling wax over the spawn will kill it before it grows. A mix of petroleum jelly with the wax will help to make it more pliable - 1 part Petroleum Jelly to 3 parts wax .
Once the logs have been seeded stack them outside in a somewhat shaded location, a little sunshine - very little - is also needed - but never direct sunlight. Keep the logs moist, especially when there is inadequate rain, soak them down generously.
From time to time while awaiting your mushrooms appearance , it is a good idea to stir up the logs. Bump them around a bit after the first complete season from when you inoculated them. Pick up the logs and drop them on the ground, this "thumping" will help stir up the spores that produce the mushrooms and circulate them somewhat .
After thumping and bumping them up, wet them down a tad . It is important that the logs be kept moist and soaked down - don't allow them to dry out for extended periods - even during seasons when you aren't watering your lawn or garden - water your logs.
