Common name: Pink Oyster

Fruiting Temperature: 65–85 °F

A tropical species, the Pink Oyster mushroom is also known as the Flamingo Oyster. It produces strikingly beautiful, bright pink mushrooms. Requires temperatures over 70 °F to fruit.

Unlike the other cultures that we offer, Pink Oyster should never be refrigerated – it is best stored it at room temperatures (approximately 68-71 °F). After transferring a tissue sample from the test tube to a petri dish, it should be expanded to a new petri dish every 1-1.5 years.

Fungi Perfecti is constantly working with these strains, screening and maintaining cell lines. Fungi Perfecti is releasing the following strains for use on a conditional basis.

Each order of in vitro mushroom cultures is custom-made: lead time for cultures is 6–8 weeks from date of order.

Please note: Unlike our Mushroom Plug Spawn, our cultures do not come with instructions. It is assumed that the purchaser is sufficiently familiar with mushroom culture technique to utilize these cultures. The books Growing Gourmet & Medicinal Mushrooms and The Mushroom Cultivator are essential tools in this endeavor.

By purchasing these cultures, the customer agrees to the terms of the Mushroom Culture Sale Agreement. Each strain is designated with the Stamets P Value® scale, signifying the expansion of mycelium covering a 100 x 15 mm petri dish (approximately 1,000–2,000 cell divisions).

The first time a wild species is tissue cultured, the age is denoted as P-O. Thereafter each successive growth over the petri dish’s surface is described in increments of P-l, etc. This library tries to maintain strains closest to their wild origins or closest to their peak fruiting potentials. Each culture comes in a 125 x 20 mm glass test tube.
