What Are White Oyster Mushrooms?

Pleurotus Ostreatus is known as the white, pearl, beige, or grey oyster mushroom amongst a multitude of other names. Depending on where you are and who you’re talking to the white oyster species being referred to may be different due to the varying range of qualities.

Some ‘white oyster’ mushrooms are suitable for growing during the summer months, others are more suited to growing in winter. These impressive giants develop thick meaty caps when grown on hardwood and given plentiful fresh air.

What Do White Oyster Mushrooms Taste Like?

White oyster mushrooms pack a big umami punch with every mouthful. More subtle in flavour than pink oyster mushrooms but with a thicker and meatier texture. Ideal for soups, stir-fries and deep-frying. 

What Do White Oyster Mushrooms Grow On?

The white oyster mushroom is a saprotroph that acts as a primary decomposer. It’s often found on decaying on dying trees consuming the dead wood. They benefit the forest by decomposing dead and decaying matter and returning vital elements and minerals to the ecosystem.

In terms of commercial production white oyster mushroom are often grown on a supplemented hardwood substrate.

Alternatively, it is grown on a wide range of cellulose rich materials such as sugar cane mulch, straw, and corn cob which has been pasteurised.

Learn How To Grow Oyster Mushrooms

Growing oyster mushrooms in buckets is a great project for first timers and more experienced cultivators alike. You can grow your own mushrooms at home using sugar cane mulch, straw or the cellulose rich material of your choice in conjunction with either cold or hot water pasteurisation.

Simple and easy to do using a few household items.

Using A Humidifier

Humidity can be managed through a diligent misting and fanning regime, however the introduction of a humidifier and humidity controller can help automate the process and ensure consistency.

Adding a 6L humidifier and controller to a greenhouse with the addition of a USB fan is a quick and easy way to make a low cost fruiting chamber that delivers excellent results.

SGFC Shotgun Fruiting Chamber

Making A Fruiting Chamber

Mushrooms require humidity to grow. We recommend using a mini-greenhouse. Spraying the inside walls of the greenhouse will help raise humidity. A cheap humidifier can used to automate the process.

It’s important to ensure that the grow kit has fresh air exchange. Mushrooms produce carbon dioxide and will grow long and leggy if they require more oxygen. 

Check the product pages for species specific requirements.

Alternatively you can build a Shotgun Fruiting Chamber (SGFC) from a few common items found easily in your local hardware store.

White Oyster Mushroom Spawn Run

White oyster mushrooms will colonise both grain spawn and substrates very quickly. Full colonisation can often expected within 7 – 10 days

White Oyster Mushroom
Pinning Conditions

No special are requirements to trigger pinning on white oyster mushrooms. These will often begin pinning on their own if left unattended.

White Oyster Mushroom Fruiting Conditions

Summer varieties: 16 – 30 degrees Celsius (60 – 86F)

Above 85%RH

Winter varieties: 13 – 20 degrees Celsius (55 – 70 F)

Above 85%RH

These values are to be used as a guide only due to the differences between white oyster varieties available. White oyster mushrooms require more fresh air than pink oyster but less than king oyster.

White Oyster Mushroom Grain Spawn

Grain spawn is a little known secret weapon of the world of mushroom cultivation. It’s made from sterilised grains that have been inoculated with a live mycelium culture.

Grain spawn contains a lot of energy for the mycelium to consume. It’s a bit like rocket fuel for mushrooms. Once it’s added to your substrate it takes off like wild fire. 

Mother Nature works her magic using spores but in a controlled environment you need to tip the scales in your favour by using clean high-quality grain spawn so you are doing your best to ensure success.
