King Oyster (Pleurotus Eryngii)
Our Certified Organic King Oyster substrate comes in larger boxes and the bags are up-popped allowing for primordia to safely form on the top surface of the block. As soon as tiny pins begin to form cut the top of the bag off leaving a 3-4" collar of plastic to give the forming mushrooms a micro-climate with some extra high humidity. Once the caps begin to flatten out they are ready to harvest.
Helpful Cultivation Notes:
- A high level of finely atomized humidity as well as strong cool spectrum (6500K) light can really help with the pinset and development of king oysters.
- Using thin plastic sheets to mask off kings forming on your fruiting shelves can help to keep the relative humidity higher than the rest of your room
