is this any good?
    #26677075 - 05/17/20 03:00 PM (12 days, 21 hours ago)

Hey I'm a noob and just ordered some blue oyster grain spawn. it came in this:



I was expecting it to come better sealed... and a lot more of it. This is my first grow so I just have a couple questions to make sure I'm on the right track

I noticed some yellow splotchyness, I hope its visible



is this a sign of contamination? If its not and the grain spawn is healthy, is this enough to grow mushrooms or should I do a g2g transfer and make more before putting on a bulk substrate?

I think if i have to return the grain spawn I would rather get spores than grain spawn so I could try a brf cake as it seems to be the most recommended way of going about doing things for beginners. If I have to get a refund, where should I order some more blue oyster spores from? Are any of the stores recommended on this forum ok or are some better than others.

Wow I’ve never seen grain spawn sold like that before.

Was this some small operation you ordered it from?


Oysters are usually pretty aggressive and even if it was just one grain you could toss it in a jar to expand it.
I think yellow/orange tinge is common with them too but I’m not positive.

Also I’m super curious, if you don’t mind how much was it?

This thread was moved from Mushroom Cultivation.

You can probably get fruits from it and use it to obtain a pure culture. For the price you got what you paid for.

Stick with a known good spawn provider like Aloha Medicinals. You won't pay much more and you will be happy with what you get...

Where are you growing and what temps are you growing in? Blue Oyster is a cold-weather oyster.

:whathesaid:

Ugh, that looks like it came from Ebay.  Amazon has gotten SLACK lately with what they let folks sell on there.  No better than E-bay was 10 years ago.  Now I actually trust e-bay almost more than Amazon...

We should all really be boycotting Amazon anyway, but I digress...
