Mycelial Types: Longitudinally striate mycelium, with radiating rhizomorphs overlaying a cottony undergrowth.
Spawn Medium: Cereal grain spawn throughout, with excellent growth on whole rye grains.
Substrate for Fruiting: Enriched composts or pasteurized substrates supplemented with nitrogenous additives.
Spawn Run: Relitive Humidity: 90-100% Incubation Temprature: 70-80'F. Duration: 28-40 days on compost; 60-90 days on sawdust. CO2: Greater than 5000 ppm Fresh Air Exchanges: 1 per hour.
Type of Casing: After fully run, cover with the standard casing. Layer to a depth of 1.5-2 inches. The casing should be balanced to a pH of 7.0-7.5
Primordia Formation: Relative Humidity: 80-90% Initiation Temperature: 70-75'F. Duration: 18-24 days CO2 400-800 ppm. Fresh Air Exchances: 5-7 per hour. Light: minimal, 100-200 foot-candles
Fruitbody Development: Relative Humidity: 75-85% Temperatue: 75-80'F. CO2: less than 2000 ppm. Fresh Air Exchanges: 5-7 per hour. Flushing Intervals: 2 to 3 weeks for 2-3 flushes. Harvest Stage: The best time to harvest is when the mushroom still have an intact partial veil covering the gills. Light: 100-200 foot-candle.
Yeild Potential: Current biological effciencies are estimated to average 50-75%
