PINK OYSTER MUSHROOM PLUG SPAWN
Easily grow your own Pink Oyster mushrooms for years to come. Pink Oyster Plug spawn is wood dowels inoculated with the Pink Oyster mushroom species mycelium, and used to grow Pink 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
PINK OYSTER MUSHROOM
Pleurotus djamor, commonly known as the pink oyster mushroom, is a species of fungus in the family Pleurotaceae. It was originally named Agaricus djamor by the German-born botanist Georg Eberhard Rumphius and sanctioned under that name by Elias Magnus Fries in 1821. It was known by many different names before being transferred to the genus Pleurotus by Karel Bernard Boedijn in 1959.
