Oyster mushrooms are a wonderful fast and easy mushroom to grow. They grow primarily on cellulose waste products. This can be wood, sawdust, straw or even cottonseed hulls. Our kits are made of cottonseed hulls. We prefer cottonseed hulls, since the hulls shape well to the size of our containers and provide an excellent rich growing material for the oyster mushrooms to feed on. Our mushroom kits are easy to grow. We offer several different oyster mushroom varieties for sale. That is because each variety is unique enough and different enough that it seems as though you are growing a different variety of mushroom with each one. It is common for even the same oyster mushroom variety to appear different from one fruiting to the next. Sometimes the color of the mushroom cap changes depending on how much light is available at the time of fruiting. High Carbon Dioxides levels will even change the shape of the mushrooms grown. Oyster mushrooms are one of the few mushroom kits that are required to be started in a timely fashion or the mushroom will find its way out of the box on it’s own without your help and fruit. This can be quit a surprise when you see several large Oyster mushrooms growing off the side a closed mushroom kit.
