GOLDEN YELLOW OYSTER MUSHROOM PLUG SPAWN
Easily grow your own Yellow Oyster mushrooms for years to come. Yellow Oyster Plug spawn is wood dowels inoculated with the Yellow Oyster mushroom species mycelium, and used to grow Yellow Oyster mushrooms on freshly cut logs or stumps. You will specifically need hardwood logs such as Alder, Ash, Birch, Bitternut, Cherry, Chestnut, Hophornbeam, Ironwood, Maple, Oak, Pecan, Sweet gum, Sycamore, Tulip poplar, Walnut, Willow and others. They do not grow on conifers.
Simply drill 5/16" holes 1" deep to hammer the plugs into. The holes should be drilled right before plugging them, and spaced about 4" apart. Logs should be roughly 6 inches in diameter and four feet long. They need to be freshly cut, or at least cut within the past 20 days. Avoid using logs with missing or split bark, try to find unpenetrated logs, except on the sides they were cut.
Plug spawn can also be used to grow mushrooms on live trees, but should only be done strategically down branch where pruning is planned later. Our plug spawn is made from hardwood fluted or spiral dowels
GOLDEN YELLOW OYSTER MUSHROOM
Pleurotus citrinopileatus, the yellow/golden oyster mushroom (tamogitake in Japanese), is an edible gilled fungus. Native to eastern Russia, northern China, and Japan, the golden oyster mushroom is very closely related to P. cornucopiae of Europe, with some authors considering them to be at the rank of subspecies. In far eastern Russia, P. citrinopileatus, they are called iI'mak, is one of the most popular wild edible mushrooms.
