This plug spawn is White Oyster (Pleurotus ostreatus) 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 compliment many dishes, or be sauteed alone as a side. Highly nutritious, these mushrooms are up to 30% protein and contain vitamin C, niacin, folic acid, and potassium.
This strain is an abundant producer and can fruit in a wide range of temperatures ranging from 55-80˚F. For details on how to use your plug spawn to grow mushrooms on logs see our Mushroom Log Cultivation page.
