| Pleurotus ostreatus (Pearl Oyster)
A 55-75 ° F indoor temperature is required for this Patch.
Mushrooms could begin appearing in as little as 1 month from preparing the Patch.
Mushrooms can vary from a white to a light grey color.
These mushrooms should be mixed within 2 weeks from receipt.
A person can harvest 1-3 pounds of fresh mushrooms over several flushes. More substrate can be added once mushrooms formation has slowed to encourage more mushrooms.
The Patch is designed to be mixed into a bucket with fresh coffee/espresso grounds, or a mixture of paper and grounds, or fresh straw.
This Patch is great for science experiments, or for those looking for a more “hands-on” experience.
Full instructions are included along with a toll free Mushroom Hotline for any questions you might have.|
The Oyster Mushroom Patch is a selective composition of pasteurized straw fully impregnated with the mushroom organism, called the mycelium. The mycelium is whitish in color, with tones of yellow as it matures (the Pink Oyster has whitish mycelium that turns pink as it matures). The mushroom kit is in a state of “suspended animation” until you receive it.
