Oyster mushroom attempt
« on: January 13, 2020, 06:33:41 pm »

The small jar is just cardboard and coffee grounds with a small piece of a oyster I found a few days ago here in Missouri.  The other container is straight coffee grounds that was a bit to wet when I started so has been very slow to colonize but is finally getting there. Both of my samples have just been local mushrooms I have found and just cleaned up a little took a clean chunk out of the cap and put straight to the coffee grounds without any special 180 degrees for 4 hours. So far it's looking good I have had one jar contaminate but to be expected. I'm figuring out how I'm going to pasteurize some straw to use as substrate to fruit them on.
