My first Pleurotus djamor

P. djamor on straw 10 days after inoculation. I keep them in kitchen (room temp and RH). Those who were placed nearer to the window seem to form more primordia.
Here are some pics:

10 days ia about right for pink oysters, unless you're trying to colonize a huge amount of substrate first. They're one of the fastest growing shrooms you can hope to find

Do keep giving them some light. Djamor is very photosensitive. (I believe they like ~1000 lux for primordia formation and fruiting).

I spawned it with wheat grain spawn. The spawn rate was about 10%. The straw was just pasteurized.
Mature mushroos release clouds of spores that can be seen in sun beams coming trough the window. Unfortunately I wasn't able to take a picture of that.
Their smell reminds me of apricots. I remember a post in this forum asking about what mushrooms could be "apricot cantharelles" as they are sold in south africa.

Re: oysters and spores....in commercial environments you generally wear masks to stop the inhalation of spores...because oysters are such proflific sporalators!

Have you considered trying coffee grounds or H2O2 treated newspaper as substrates?

"Have you considered trying coffee grounds or H2O2 treated newspaper as substrates?"

I'm going to inoculate some paper next time. Has anybody tried it? Stamets is growing them from his books but I thought that it would be better to schred it and pasteurize it.

You're going to shred Stamets book before innoculating it?

I'm just about to try newsprint treated with some H2O2 myself for bulk oyster growing. I have some cheap ($5) plastic storage bins that'd be great for bulk growing.

I'm curious how stamets innoculated books and an old armchair -- did he sprinkle them with grain spawn, or maybe culture liquid mycelium and spread that on them?

No, no. I'm not going to schred Stamets book. I meant paper in general.
I think that armchair with shrooms growing on it is just inoculated straw shaped as an armchair.
Are you going to pasteurize paper or just soak it in H2O2 solution?

I was actually planning on pasteurizing the newsprint.....straining well.....then spraying with .5% H2O2 solution.

I've read that you can direct innoculate with liquid mycelium (I happen to have some already), so I'll try that on a very small test bed. Probably work-up some grain spawn if things look good.

I will, naturally, post results

FYI....fresh newsprint is actually relatively sterile, apparantly. Most of the solvents used in the printing processs evaporate before the paper gets to you, and the pasteurization process will help wash away what little is left.

I'm just starting into oyster cultivation, using straw. Newspaper might be a great next step, considering I have access to more newspaper then anyone could ever need. I know people at the local newspaper that can get me access to their recycling bin!

i colonised a few 250ml jars of cardboard and was surprised to find that the ones i didnt use to spawn straw actually fruited by themselves - small but substantial fruiting too!
