domesticating an oyster I collected
    #2317184 - 02/09/04 11:03 AM (12 years, 9 months ago)

I collected an oyster mushroom from the base of a dying aspen tree last fall.




Thus far it looks to be a producer of fat little promordia, lets hope that carries over into the later stages of fruiting.



Best regards,

Millet

Really very nice piece of mushroom.
On what substrate is it growing ?

It is growing from a grasslands mycobag.

The fruits are developing at an avg rate, however they seem to be a bit malformed. They are meaty for sure.

Heres an updated pic.

Millet

Here is this mornings pic, this was harvested right after the pic was taken. This mushroom doesnt have the nauseating oyster smell that many associate w pleurotus.

This strain obviously needs more work. It is at least forming primordia ONLY at holes in the bag, so it has potential.

A work in progress.



best regards,

Millet

Very cool, albeit somewhat deformed.

How do you plan to further the domestication?

Using the original clone ill grow it out on a large amount of substrate.  I believe the use of a small sized bag for this strain is too little nutrients.  The reason I say this is because of the mass this strain created, the fruitbody clusters were quite heavy.

We know it grows on straw now (found on a dying aspen), later in the year well trial it in the greenhouse with trashbags full of straw.  I think it will be a heavy weight producer.

As well, it grows primordia only at the bag holes (fruiting holes), thats a good thing.  I would be hesitant to do further work if it fruited under the bag, because of my growing style.  This type of random fruiting within the bag is a huge waste of energy.

I will also be supplementing the straw with cotton seed hulls.  We are going for weight, with our future production already spoken for in a few of the finer eateries in our area.

it ought to make for some nice pics... :tongue:

I forgot to mention that the fruits are totally white, that should also be a nice selling point, they dont appear to turn the nice brown seen in the collection pic under cultivation.

I've been told that french chefs go nuts over the yellow and pink variaties.

Should talk to creekfarmer, he just started an "at-home" commercial oyster grow. Can't remember what his monthly yield is, but it is large. =)

If you're going for further experimentation to isolate the strain and try others, here's an idea to toss around.
Reshkadesh grew a batch of oysters by placing oyster spawn in the middle of a full size toilet-paper roll and incubating. It made for a really cool picture and seemed as if it would be considerably less expensive for small scale experiments.

That would explain why I don't like French cooking. No, just kidding! But honestly, I have a good tolerance for a wide variety of foods and I find the Pink Oyster to be absolutely disgusting, the yellow is better, but not by much. They have a very "shroomy" taste if you follow what I'm getting at here, they taste and smell exactly like Psilocybes.

Good looking Grow there Millet! That's one huge oyster in the original collection. The cultivated variety looks a lot like a deformed Pearl oyster in it's color.

Millet, did you fruit those in a 'dimly lit' chamber? If so that could be the reason for the pure white fruit (seeing the outdoor fruit were tan)

The chamber is lit by a 2 bulb 2' flouro fixture suspended above the chamber.

I am currently trying this strain on a wood based substrate.
