Advanced

This species presents unique challenges that make it difficult to cultivate.

King Oyster Mushroom is the largest species in the oyster mushroom. It has a thick, meaty white stem and a small tan cap (in young specimens). Its natural range extends from the Atlantic Ocean through the Mediterranean Basin and Central Europe into Western Asia and India. Unlike other species of Pleurotus, which are primarily wood-decay fungi, the P. eryngii complex are also weak parasites on the roots of herbaceous plants, although they may also be cultured on organic wastes.


Easily grow your own King Oyster Mushrooms for years to come. King Oyster Mushroom Plug Spawn is wood dowels inoculated with the King Oyster Mushroom species mycelium, and used to grow mushroom fruiting bodies 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. King Oyster Mushrooms do not grow on conifers.

Simply drill 5/16" holes 1" deep to hammer the King Oyster Mushroom 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.

King Oyster Mushroom 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 King Oyster Mushroom plug spawn is made from hardwood fluted or spiral dowels.
