Blue oyster mushrooms are velvety, savory, and mild and pair perfectly with just about any recipe! Blue oysters are a staple here at North Spore (going all the way back to when we began as an urban farm.) After perfecting our blue oyster kits over the years, they’ve become one of the easiest kits to get multiple fruitings from and should produce a second flush of mushrooms (or more!)
Our blue oyster mushroom kits are reliable producers and tend to yield large flushes of beautiful light grayish-brown to deep blue-gray mushrooms when given adequate humidity. With continued proper care, you should be able to get multiple flushes. (We 100% guarantee your first flush of mushrooms, but hope you’ll try for 2 or 3!)
That’s not mold, it’s mycelium!
Your kit includes an amended sawdust block fully colonized with mushroom mycelium. It may appear covered with a soft, white, mold-like substance – that’s the mushroom mycelium! It is completely normal. The mycelium of some species is more prominent than others.
The spawn used in our mushroom kits is grown on USDA certified organic grain and made with organic cultures from our own culture bank. Our kits are handmade from a blend of locally sourced, all-natural, organic, and non-GMO woods and supplements from farms and forests in New England and North America.
