Is 65% RH enough for pink Oysters?
    #27048390 - 11/20/20 06:42 AM (13 days, 7 hours ago)

Noob Alert.

My first attempt at oysters is starting to fruit.  I have them on a covered patio where it is currently 65% RH.  Is this an OK environment for fruiting?

Notttt even close. You want 90min, ideally 100. They are tropical shrooms my dude.

So if I try to grow mold, will my fav mushrooms contaminate my blocks instead??

i feel like if you can get them to pin near 90-100% then i think (with oysters) it is possible yet not ideal to maintain growth at 65% humidity.

show us a pic of your patio and maybe we can throw suggestions as to how to raise humidity.

Truth. I quickly read and forgot that his had already pinned. If you can mist em then you can get fruits.

Cheers for the feedback.  I think I'll get some large clear trash bags and fashion a humidity tent then.  Does that seem an OK approach?

They will be starving for fresh air if you use that approach to fruit, unless you take that bag off and fan them multiple times a day. All oyster varieties need nearly constant gas exchange to grow properly.

Would poking a few holes in the bag be sufficient?

I mean its not going to hurt.. but you will still need to take the bag off and fan a few times a day. You likely wont get very good fruits, whats your climate like? Is this being done indoors? Bc pinks are very fussy with temps.

I'm in South Florida so in theory this should be easy.  65%-80% ambient RH today.  If it stays that way, I'll leave them au naturelle, but if it stops raining I'll go with the fan & tent approach.

Thanks for the advice, I didn't realize oysters were so reliant on copious air exchange.

Just keep the humidity as high as you can. Without pumping in humility you will not get to 90%. Just do what you can and the mushrooms will have to deal with it.
