Well done, I have isolated Pleurotus cultures from supermarket mushrooms in the past and had great results. The fresher the better.

When you have a nice fast growing pure culture on agar, transfer to sterilised rye grain in jars to make spawn. In 2 weeks you can then transfer grain spawn to bags of pPasteurised wheatstraw, and within another 2 weeks they should show signs of fruiting. Good luck.

Could not have said it better myself. Although, save a few cents and use Finch Birdseed instead of grain.

Stay Cool!

I'm lucky, I guess. I have oysters popping out all over my firewood, believe it or don't. Tasty lil buggers.

I've never cultured these from spores, but have used plugs from Fungi Perfecti in logs on my land...very productive...

Good luck! Let us know how it goes...
