Phoenix Oyster – Liquid Culture Syringe
Units Sold: 1
Pleurotus pulmonarius is known commonly as the Phoenix Oyster or Lung Oyster. It is known for it’s large, sometimes translucent fruits when found in the wild. However, when cultivated, this strain is opaque white, with a slightly silver (mostly white) topped cap. It is one of the tastier oysters that I have tried, and it too has a voracious appetite. I have grown these on cardboard, coffee grinds, hardwood sawdust, master’s mix and even pine chips! I would recommend using 15% supplemented sawdust or master’s mix. It will also grow on straw. Temperature range is 60F-90F, and RH is best left in the mid 80% range. Sometimes spiking the RH up to 95% for a day will precipitate pinning.
SoFlo Fungi’s founder, Sam Kwalwasser, has been fascinated by many scientific fields of study over the course of his life and studies. After discovering the field of mycology, he quickly grew obsessed, reading every website, blog, and book he could find on the topic. He is a bonafide mycophile.
During the lockdown, he fell in love with breeding and maintaining various cultures. All of these fungal cultures are capable of fruiting either indoors or outdoors right here in South Florida or really in ANY place indoors all around the world. The 2020 pandemic and lockdown were surely a very large motivator in turning this hobby into a business. Though he would do this for free, his business background taught him that this would not be sustainable!
