fruiting Pink oyster
    #999576 - 10/28/02 11:53 AM (15 years, 30 days ago)

Ok, i've got this bag of straw colonised with pink oyster mycelium, it was pretty damn wet so I took it out of the bag when i put it under fruiting conditions. I cold shocked the thing for about 17 hours and put it in a big translucent super humid container at 75 ' F. Its been about 4 days now and was wondering if this thing is going to pin or not.

I've been giving it lots of light and fanning it, but was wondering if perhaps It was too humid (condensation forming on it, but no drips), or perhaps i need to vary the temperature more?
or am I being impatient?
any suggestions?

It's fully colonized? For sure, for sure? If so, it'll spontenously start to fruit in all but the most challenging conditions. Be patient, young grasshopper.

Oh, and drop the temperature a few degrees if you can...

Please do let me know how it works out. I suspect doing the above and waiting a little bit will bear fruits.

Take a large poly bag....put the straw back in it....take knife....cut star-shaped holes in bag...hang bags in approximately right fruiting conditions....watch it fruit..... ;-)

I'd actually MISSED the fact that you said you took it out of the bag....I think the above will encourage it....if it doesn't, there's something VERY wrong. P. djamor should almost spontaneously fruit on substrate domination.

Green?! As in trichoderma type green? Or a green tint?

Any sign of bacterial infection?

a green tint, if i leave them for long enough they go tricho-green, but i always remove them before this happens. This knotting is really odd, it more like a lumpy bubbly sort of stuff, like... ooze?

sorry about the vague description, i wish i had a decent camera.

i'm guessing it's some kind of contamination, i've had bad trichoderma before and it didn't look like this.

In my experience oysters like a cold dunk except pinks. Mine are fruiting right now and I have them at 80° F and humidity at 95-100% in a SGFC . They did bleach out bc of low fae though. Scratch the surface of the mycelium. It's a Tek that help promote primordia. If that don't help you may have bad spawn. Good luck

Oysters - Pink/Blue/Green/yellow/Whatever (except kings that are a law unto themselves):

Don't

Dunk
Cold Shock
Take out of the bag
Add weird shit to your substrate
Dance around at midnight waving voodoo sticks
Worry

Do

Mix spawn with pasteurised sub
Put cuts in bag
Keep at 22-24C for 14 days in the dark - Should be all white, pinks will be less so
Move to FC - 14-22C for most Oysters, Min 17C for pinks, LOTS of FAE and LIGHT
Will flush after 5-10 days, then again, and again.
Compost
Be Happy


I know its not much of a "Tec" but I grow 80-100Kg of oysters a week just like this
- stick to the basics, this was all in Stamets years ago and it hasn't changed much.

Ha! :facepalm:
I only looked at the date of the last post. My bad.

I should change the last line to " This was all in Stamets weeks ago" :smile:

Sterilized substrate is far more productive per Sq ft or cubic foot if you can get access to soy hull pellets.  It blows straw or cottonseed hull out of the water.

It was the difference between me growing oysters profitably or not at all.

are soy hull pellets better than wheat bran for sterilization ?


and can this thread be considered resurrected now?
