A cold weather variant of Pleurotus ostreatus, Blue Oysters are one of the most prolific fruiting and easy to grow mushrooms. Oyster mushrooms fruit best at 55-70 degrees Fahrenheit, require ample amounts of fresh air exchange (FAE) and a humidity of 85-95%. Our strains can yield a few pounds per 5 lb block, easily flushing two to three times.

Types Of Spawn:

Grain Spawn - Provides the nutritional value needed for sawdust blocks or straw to fruit prolifically. All of our spawn bags are 1st generation ensuring you will have hearty and healthy mushrooms! Check out our Ready to Fruit Blocks to see what this spawn can do!

Sawdust Spawn - Used to pack full holes drilled in logs and sealed with wax similar to plug spawn. Can be used to inoculate sawdust bags, although they routinely take significantly longer to incubate.

Plug Spawn - Using a quarter inch dill bit, holes are drilled into a hardwood log. The plugs are then pounded into the log and sealed with wax. After allowing to incubate several months - wah-lah! mushrooms! Typically logs produce from Spring to Fall
