I am selling a 4oz bag of natural organic rye grain berries fully colonized with the Pink Oyster mushroom fungus, that s right we have taken the work, and cost out of buying a bag of sterilized rye grain, and the added expense of buying a spore syringe and you having to inoculate the bag yourself, and hope you don t contaminate it in the process.
What is grain spawn?:
Grain Spawn is mushroom mycelium grown into certified organic rye grain which is ideal for inoculating sterilized substrates, or for use in unsterilized inoculations. We recommend using grain spawn within one to three months of purchase. Most species must be stored refrigerated.
Note: Our grain spawn is virgin (fresh) sometimes it will not have white mycelium showing on the outside of the grains, but it is fully colonized and should be used ASAP after receiving it for best results.
Spawn is simply a carrier to hold a specific strain of mushroom mycelium in stasis until you, the cultivator, are ready to transfer it into another substrate such as a wood log, straw, compost etc. We incubate specialty mushroom strains in our laboratory, then cultivate them into a variety of forms for your use, including sawdust, grain, and dowel plugs. Each of these, once colonized by mycelium, is referred to as spawn. We also sell the other types of spawn here as well. This grain is ready to go, just mix it with straw, paper, coffee grounds, wood chips, yard waste etc.
Pink oyster mushrooms are named for their vibrant pink color. The scientific name for this tropical mushroom is Pleurotus djamor. They are classified under the group Agaricales, like the more common button and other gilled mushrooms. They are also known as Salmon oyster mushrooms. The oyster-shaped Pink Flamingo mushrooms grow in clusters like their Blue and yellow relatives. Their color is intensely pink when raw and changes to an orange brown color when cooked. The mushroom s caps are roughly two to 5 centimeters in size and are meaty in texture, despite their thin flesh. Pink Flamingo oyster mushrooms taste like bacon or ham and their flavor intensifies when cooked. Undercooked or raw Pink Flamingo oysters have a sour taste. The aroma is pungent, which is very characteristic of the oyster mushroom per, coffee grounds, wood chips, yard waste etc.
