they need more air exchange, oysters are tough to grow like that, I never could get a decent flush indoors. When you have good air exchange they will barely have any stem, even when they start to pin, they're mostly cap.

Spectacular, did you know that Pleurotus O is selective for the uptake of selenium:

"One of the most important roles of selenium is an antioxidant acting as a cellular protector against free radical oxidative damage.(http://www.mushworld.com/tech/view.asp?cata_id=1170&vid=6068)

...In a previous investigation Pleurotus ostreatus cultivated on the same medium and with the same selenium concentrations showed significantly higher absorption of selenium by P. ostreatus mycelium (Stajic et al. 2002)."

Stajic, M., I. Milenkovic, I. Brceski, J. Vukojevic and S. Duletic-Lausevic. 2002. Mycelial growth of Pleurotus ostreatus (Jacq.: Fr.) P. Kumm. on the selenium-enriched media. Int. J. Med. Mush. issue N1 (in press).

The above was a test to see if reishi would absorb selenium as well as Pleurotus O, because reishi contains selenium.

Out of curiosity, once you have some nice WBS spawn ready to use, is cultivating Ostreatus more hard than cubensis on straw?

I read a lot on how to do it with logs and was wondering if the ostreatus is really picky on the good fruiting conditions, compared to cubensis which fruits very easily.

thanks for enlightment. Yours look so delicious!

Oysters require more air exchange than cubensis, so yes, I would say that fruiting P. Ostreatus is more difficult than P. Cubensis. But then I've never grown p. cubensis.

I've been looking into straw supplements and came across this Mushworld article.

Anyone have experience with de-oiled soybean cake?

thanks, they are very tasty :crazy2:
I only tried actives once, so Im not really an authority. However, these Oysters seemed extremely vigorous from the very beginning (sawdust to grain transfer) and throughout spawn run on straw. They seemed to explode once I took DH's kind advice and gave them regular air exchanges via computer control. They clearly like lots of light and air.

The actives I grew were weaker and had a hard time colonizing the straw. So by comparison, I'd say strain vitality plays a major factor in ease of growth.

I have seen this strain auto fruit in a spawn bag at 85F and no fresh air at all.

i've fruited Pleurotus species in conditions underwich cobensis wouldn't, but they can be finicky.

in general, i would say P. oystreatus and P. cubensis are a close match [both very easy] :laugh:.

curious because I also have some quarts of ostreatus goin but do you dry them out or eat them fresh after picking? I haven't ever had them before and this will be my first attempt at them.

thanks for the info. I figured they'd probably taste better fresh but I went to borders over the break and found a "Mushroom Cultivators Cookbook" which was only $4 and lists all types of great species and their preparations.
