Yellow Oyster Mushroom Grain Spawn - 2 kg

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. It’ll take off like wildfire once added to your bulk substrate.

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.

What Are Yellow Oyster Mushrooms?

The yellow or golden oyster mushroom (Pleurotus citrinopileatus) is native to eastern Russia, northern China and Japan. It grows in clusters producing boldly coloured yellow caps with a delicate, velvety texture.

You’re unlikely to find these golden delights in a supermarket near you due to their short shelf life and delicate structure.

What Do Yellow Oyster Mushrooms Taste Like?

Yellow oyster mushrooms are sweet and nutty when well cooked. Under cooked mushrooms may taste a little bitter. Braised golden oyster mushrooms and onions with sweet sherry, white pepper and nutmeg have been a mouthwatering addition to Sunday brunch.

What Do Yellow Oyster Mushrooms Grow On?

Yellow oyster mushrooms will grow on a wide range of materials including sugar cane mulch, straw, hardwood, paper and coffee grounds.

For beginners we recommend starting with straw or chopped sugar cane mulch. Supplementation can be added in the form of coffee grounds or bran but will increase the chances of contamination.

White oyster mushrooms are considered to be a side-fruiting mushroom compared to the king oyster or button mushroom which are top-fruiting mushrooms.

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.

Yellow Oyster Spawn Appearance

Yellow oyster mushroom mycelium is incredibly vigorous. Initially it is finer in appearance and structure than white oyster.

The mature spawn will often begin to form primordia within days of colonisation, this is indicative of it preparing to fruit. The maturing mycelium will produce yellow liquid metabolites which are a completely normal byproduct.

Any primordia which has formed prematurely, or in-vitro can be removed prior to using the spawn as usual.

Yellow Oyster Mushroom Spawn Run

Yellow oyster mycelium will colonise both grain spawn and substrates very quickly. Full colonisation can often expected within 10 – 14 days. Store at or above room temperature for optimum rate of colonisation.

Pinning Conditions

Keep at temperatures between 18 & 26 degrees Celsius to trigger pinning. It’s important to maintain humidity as high as possible at 95% RH.

Yellow oyster fruiting blocks may be opened and exposed to trigger the formation of primordia, otherwise primordia will eventually form within the bag due to the high humidity levels. 

Yellow Oyster Mushroom Fruiting Conditions

Maintain the mushrooms at temperatures between 18 – 26 degrees Celsius (77f) for fruiting body development. Humidity should be between 80 – 95%RH.
