Cloning oysters
    #4647092 - 09/11/05 08:04 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

I just bought some brown colored oyster mushrooms from my grocery store. Can i use these for cloning on cardboard? As soon as the card board is covered in mycelium what should i do next? I want to grow them in a tray.
Can i use the casing technique? How would i go about that?

Well once you establish some sort of sterile culture, you use that to inoculate some substrate.. With oysters, I don't really see a need to try and use a casing but if you want to grow them in a tray, you could always line a tray with your substrate of choice and just incubate the oyster mycelium in it. Growing without the tray would allow more fruiting surface area and a larger harvest in most cases. I've never really used cardboard as a starting point for cloning. I just use agar for the most point. A wide variety of species can form cultures in agar.
