YELLOW OYSTER SPAWN?
    #25186864 - 05/06/18 01:59 AM (3 years, 2 days ago)

I bought yellow oyster spawn from a commercial supplier. When it came in it looked very week, so I thought it just needed more time. I let it sit at room temp for another 2 weeks. It looked better but never got white like the elm oyster spawn that I bought at the same time. So I spawned to grain jars to see if I could save it. I also done elm jars at the same time. It has been 8 days elm jars were shook 2 days ago and are almost done. The elm jars look great! The yellow jars, however, are not looking good to me. I am wondering if yellow oyster just have weaker mycelium. I bought from a very reliable supplier, and I would like to know if I need to contact them or if this is just how yellow oysters are. Jar 1 looks very fuzzy on top jar 2 and 3 look better with nice white spots all 3 are taking longer than expected. I think the yellow oyster spawn came in contaminated. I transfered the yellow to an agar plate but it also looks very weak. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

Those look pretty good to me, though I'm far from an expert.

In my limited experience, the yellow oyster mycelium isn't as tenacious as elm oyster or other Po strains. When I've grown it I've always spawned at a higher rate (aka more spawn per bag) than I use with other oysters. Not sure if it's the weaker mycelium or the need for higher temps, but it definitely feels more like a race against contaminants with yellow oysters.

Looks like mine. I'm noticing it doesn't have, the "fuller" look of other myc.

Yellow Oyster mycelium can look quite whispy and patchy in both spawn jars and grow bags, those jars look good to me
