Oysters
    #11192647 - 10/06/09 12:09 PM (8 years, 9 months ago)

Howdy,

I have a few jars of White Oyster myc on WBS that are ready ahead of schedule(I did these jars just as a test a couple weeks before I transferred my cultures into the rest of the jars) and I'm not really In a position to be pasteurizing straw and what not.

I know you can grow oysters in BRF cakes. What is the best way to go about fruiting these two jars of WBS though..

Can I just load the spawn into a tray and case it in verm similar to growing cubes? I'm not too fussed about yield potential with this lot. I just wouldn't mind getting them out of the jars and fruiting, without having to screw around with straw or other media. I'll leave that for in a few weeks time when I have more spawn to play with.

Peace.

Another easy thing you could do is transfer the spawn to pasteurized sawdust.  All I do is add 3 cups of sawdust pellets (bought at hardware store) to a 1 gallon ziploc bag.  Pour in 3 cups of boiling water and wait for it to cool.  Then ad your spawn and poke a few holes with a toothpick.

I second paper/cardboard substrate being very easy and it gives decent yields too. I layer spawn every few inches of cardboard. Make sure you cut holes large enough in between each layer for drainage and to allow the myc to colonize easier:

Also try searching on the forums as quite a few have done it and posted their teks.

Cardboard and newspaper sound like good substrates to me, but what about the pigments in the printing ink? Some contain heavy metals and mushrooms are notorious for accumulating those in their mycelium. What does the cultivation community think of this?

I heard that most newspapers today are printed with soy based ink.  You could always contact your newspaper provider to verify.
