1 kg Phoenix Oyster (pleurotus pumlonarius) Grain Spawn

Grain Spawn is used to inoculate wheat straw or sawdust. It can be used to inoculate hardwood outdoors but it is not ideal since it will attract squirrels and other animals that will try to reach the grains as food source. It can also be used to start culture on agar or to expand more grains.

Please see our other blogs covering more specific subjects about the fun world of growing mushrooms.

The Indian oyster mushroom also called Phoenix oyster (Pleurotus Pulmonarius) is virtually identical to P. Ostreatus differing largely in its habitat. This is a forgiving, fun to grow, fun to watch and delicious gourmet mushroom. The mycelium is very aggressive and can be ready to fruit within two to three weeks. This mushroom is easy to grow and requires little maintenance which makes it the perfect choice for the beginner hobbyist to grow in a home environment.

Difficulty level: easy / moderate / hard

Ideal substrate: straw and sawdust.
