Fruiting Phoenix Oysters
    #2453289 - 03/20/04 02:38 AM (12 years, 8 months ago)

Do I need to do anything special to my healthy phoenix oyster casing to get it fruiting? Treating it to same conditions as any other strain of mushroom. Been about 4 - 5 days, no pins.

You use a casing for your Pleurotus pulmonarius ?

Yes, fruit it in a bag not a casing.

By any other strain of mushroom do you mean Psilocybe cubensis???

What substrate are you using?

No casing is needed. Let it colonize the casing, sooner or later it will throw something your way.

You could remove the casing layer and then add the colonized substrate to a punctured bag to get better results. If your casing isn't that big you could use it to spawn more substrate.

You can fruit in trays though also. Iv seen big flat trays filled with pasterized straw like growin cubes. But when in trays you need a lot more hunidity cuz so much surface area.

Well thats a new one on me. I've only ever seen them grown in bags and on hardwood/conifer logs.

You learn something new every day!  :smile:

You need a high amount of air exchange for oysters or your fruits will be mutated from too much co2

You are right man. The trays are "cased" in plastic that is punctured. They fruit the same way as any straw log except they grow from a horizontal surface.
