How To Grow Pink Oyster Mushrooms. The pink oyster mushroom is the perfect choice for the first-time mushroom cultivator. It grows at room temperature and anywhere warmer. Members of our cultivation group have used many different cultivation methods, and the only one that actually killed the mushroom was direct exposure to the sun and drying in a hot house. Cut or poke holes in the bag now, if you haven't already done so. Keep the straw block in a warm place. P. flabellatus prefers 60° or warmer. How many holes should I cut in the bag? Part II.

Hypsizygus ulmarius. Hypsizygus ulmarius [ Basidiomycetes > Agaricales > Tricholomataceae > Hypsizygus . . . ] by Ron Meyers One of my favorite table mushrooms is the Oyster Mushroom, Pleurotus ostreatus. I have been fortunate to harvest at least a meal from my yard almost every year. So when I saw a solitary mushroom growing from an injury in a box elder tree, I thought it was another oyster.

But on closer inspection it was very different. Since then I have had several fruit on other box elder trees in my yard. Hypsizygus ulmarius, sometimes called the "elm oyster," is edible, but in my opinion not nearly so palatable as the Pleurotus group. Description: Ecology: Saprobic; growing alone or in pairs (sometimes in clusters of three), usually growing from branch scar sites of living hardwoods, particularly elm or box elder; widespread at least though the eastern United States (Arora reports it from California); August to December.

Flesh: Firm; white. Taste: Mild; odor not distinctive. Spore Print: White to buff. 12Dec13-cont-a. Pinning1. Pinning2. Pleurotus pulmonarius - Mycology Wiki. Pleurotus pulmonarius Oyster mushroom Pleurotus pulmonarius, the lung oyster mushroom, is very similar to Pleurotus ostreatus, the tree oyster, but has a few noticeable differences. The caps of pulmonarius are much paler and smaller than ostreatus and develops more of a stem. Pulmonarius also prefers warmer weather than ostreatus and will appear later in the summer. Otherwise, the taste and cultivation of the two species is generally described as largely the same. Cap: 2-12 cm; convex, becoming flat or somewhat depressed; lung-shaped (hence its Latin name) to semicircular, or nearly circular if growing on the tops of logs; somewhat greasy when young and fresh; fairly smooth; whitish to beige or pale tan, usually without dark brown colorations; the margin inrolled when young, later wavy and, unlike Pleurotus ostreatus, very finely lined.

Pleurotus pulmonarius, commonly known as the Indian Oyster, Italian Oyster, Phoenix Mushroom, or the Lung Oyster, is a mushroom very similar to Pleurotus ostreatus, the pearl oyster, but with a few noticeable differences. The caps of pulmonarius are much paler and smaller than ostreatus and develops more of a stem. P. pulmonarius also prefers warmer weather than ostreatus and will appear later in the summer. Otherwise, the taste and cultivation of the two species is generally described as largely the same.[1] In North America, P. pulmonarius also closely resembles Pleurotus populinus, which is restricted to growing on aspen and cottonwood (genus Populus).[2] Natural habitat[edit] P. pulmonarius is widespread in temperate and subtropical forests throughout the world.

Taxonomy[edit] 1821 First published as Agaricus pulmonarius by Fr.1975 Disambiguated from Pleurotus sajor-caju by Pegler Description[edit] Cultivation[edit] Medical research[edit] References[edit] External links[edit] Chocolate Oyster Edible Mushroom. Chocolate Oyster Mushrooms, otherwise known as Italian Oyster mushrooms, are not only a delicious gourmet edible. they are extremely medicinal as well. They can reduce cholesterol, promote cardiovascular, boost the immune system, and are also prevent to be anti-tumour, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, and antibiotic. In a recent study, Oyster mushrooms have shown high concentrations of vitamin D when dried upside down in the sun. They are a superfood indeed! Cultivation of this mushroom is among the most user friendly of all the mushrooms.

It fruits aggressively on grain, straw, wood, coffee, and almost any substrate you might spawn to. Very much affected by light, the chocolate oyster will start to fruit with even the slights exposure. Pleurotus ostreatus - Mycology Wiki. Pleurotus ostreatus Pleurotus ostreatus, the pearl oyster mushroom, is a common mushroom prized for its edibility. Long cultivated in Asia, it is now cultivated around the world for food. It is related to the similarly cultivated king oyster mushroom, pleurotus eryngii. Oyster mushrooms can also be used industrially for mycoremediation(pollution negation) purposes. Cap: 5-25 cm broad, fan or oyster-shaped; Natural specimens range from white to gray or tan to dark-brown; margin inrolled when young, smooth and often somewhat lobed or wavy Spore print: white to lilac gray Spores: white Bruising: brown Gills: on hymenium and are decurrent They will descend the stipe if present.

Stipe: not distinct with sufficient air exchange, long and narrow with buildup of CO2 Veil: absent Mycelium: whitish, longitudinally radical, soon becoming cottony, and in age forming a thick, tenacious mycelial mat.

Shimeji Beech Mushroom. Hypsizygus tessellatus. Hypsizygus tessellatus [ Basidiomycetes > Agaricales > Tricholomataceae > Hypsizygus . . . ] by Ron Meyers The name Hypsizygus tessellatus (or "Hypsizygus tessulatus") has been applied to two different mushrooms, Hypsizygus ulmarius and Hypsizygus tessellatus, to the extent that it is often difficult to know which mushroom is being described in field guides or Web sites. However, research by Redhead (1986) clearly distinguishes the two mushrooms, which actually bear very little resemblance to each other.

According to Redhead, Hypsizygus tessellatus has a small cap with crowded, round spots, and usually grows in clusters. Part of the difficulty in finding good descriptions or photos probably derives from the fact that Hypsizygus tessellatus is not a common mushroom, and not widespread in North America. The best descriptions originate from the Pacific Northwest, leading to the conclusion that it is more prevalent there.

Description: Taste: Not distinctive. Spore Print: Buff. * Redhead, S. Hypsizygus tessulatus - Mycology Wiki. Hypsizygus tessulatus Hypsizygus tessulatus falls under the umbrella concept of the Japanese "Shimeji" mushrooms. Firm textured, this mushroom is considered one of the most "gourmet" of the Oyster-like mushrooms. Recently, this mushroom has been attributed to having anti-cancer properties. Increasingly better known, this obscure mushroom compares favorably to Pleurotus ostreatus and Pleurotus pulmonarius in North American, European and Japanese markets. Cultivation Edit Ostreatus is industrially cultivated edible mushroom and although they are of the easiest mushrooms to cultivate, they are considered a gourmet mushroom.

How to Grow Shitake Mushrooms in Florida. Overview Florida's moist, warm climate makes the perfect environment for growing Shiitake mushrooms. It takes a great deal of patience to wait the 6-12 months for Shiitakes to grow, but the rich flavor added by these prized mushrooms is worth it. Shiitakes grow best in warm, shady locations and need organic substrate such as wood or straw to grow properly. Order a Shiitake mushroom spawning kit before preparing logs, as the size of inoculation tools varies by each individual kit. Step 1 Collect oak logs during early fall or late winter. Laurel oaks are abundant in Florida and are often downed by hurricanes. Step 2 Drill holes into the logs matching the size of the inoculation tool containing the Shiitake spores.

Step 3 Inoculate the logs by inserting spawn into the drilled holes. Step 4 Seal the inoculation holes with hot wax immediately after inserting spawn. Step 5 Seal the ends of logs with hot wax for added protection. Step 6 Step 7 Step 8 Step 9. Mushroom Growing Plugs for Shiitake, Miatake,Oyster, Reishi, Turkey Tail and other varieties of mushrooms.

Ok so I hope I did this right:1. I grew some Reishi and then sliced off some fruitbodies: 2. At first I had it in my head that I would grate them on a cheese grater and grate them up using the side of the grater that you use for mozzarella when you put it on a pizza, but I soon found out they are too rubbery, wet, and spongey to grate with a grater... so I sliced them up into what I thought were reasonably small slices: 3. Then I put them in a 2-quart tea kettle that has a strainer in the spout. 4. So now I have a few questions: How much do I drink? Should I drink it every morning? Judging by the color of the tea, do I need to dilute it any? I was thinking of just drinking it warmed up with honey, is there a better way? Thanks guys!! Growing Mushrooms.
