Consumers have had an increased interest in the health and culinary benefits of oyster mushrooms because it is the easiest variety of mushrooms to easily and quickly grow. They are relatively quick to grow on a wide range of substrate materials and resistant to competitor organisms.
Now, let us cover how to grow.
3 Simple Processes:
The growing medium is usually placed in bags with small air holes for air exchange. In this case with our product, take out the plastic opening tucked into the hole for air intake. Wrap the plastic covered log structure in a cloth binding it with a rubber band not too tightly but snug.
The bags are then placed in warm dark rooms of 68-75 Degree F.
The bags are exposed to autumn-like conditions with fresh oxygen, high humidity, low light, often cooler temperatures in which it would start to produce mushrooms and small pins.
Within 4-10 days of exposure to air, spray the air opening with mist (water) 2-3 times a day. Be sure to spray it as heavy intakes of water would damage the core. Be sure to spray our product with mist (water)
A crop of mushrooms can be harvested a total of 3 times befores the log becomes exhausted with a new crop of mushrooms manifesting every 7-14 days.
After a total of 5- 10 days when the mushrooms begin to sprout, you just need to wait another 5-7 days when the oyster mushrooms become a total of 3-5cms in length before you can harvest the produce!
Be weary of the following or mushrooms will not sprout:
1. Cannot be placed in a location of 89 Degrees Fahrenheit or extreme temperatures or the mushrooms would not sprout.
2. Rubber bands binding the towel to the log should not be too tight.
3. Removing the plastic bag too early causing dry surfaces (before any signs of mushroom sprouting).
4. Too little exposure to sunlight
5. Overdosing the log with water instead of spraying the log with mist.
