This plug spawn is Blue Oyster (Pleurotus columbinus) Mushroom mycelium growing on wooden white birch dowels. The name “oyster” is referring to the shape, not the flavor. Oyster mushrooms have a mild texture and flavor that can complement many dishes, or be sauteed alone or as a side dish. Highly nutritious, these mushrooms are up to 30% protein and contain vitamin C, niacin, folic acid, and potassium.
This mushroom prefers fruiting temperatures ranging from 45-65˚F. For details on how to use your plug spawn to grow mushrooms in logs see our Mushroom Log Cultivation page. Check out our Mushroom Tree Compatibility Chart to find the best wood variety for growing Blue Oyster Mushrooms.
