Scientific Name: Pleurotus Citrinopileatus
Common names: Golden Oysters

Oysters are some of the mushrooms that are easiest to grow. They can colonize just about anything including phone books and toilet paper. Simply innoculate 1 quart of rye berries with a culture syringe or with a slice of colonized agar.

When finished colonized, boil a big pot of water and soak either an old phone book or 4 toilet paper rolls on a strainer as you pour the hot water into the pages of the phone book or onto the outside and inside of the toilet paper rolls, wetting it very thoroughly. When it has cooled off and all excess water has been strained, use the colonized rye berries to inoculate the inside pages of your phone book or by inoculating the inside of the toilet paper rolls by filling the inside cardboard tubes with the colonized berries all the way to the top. Put all 4 toilet paper rolls together inside a micron filter bag and seal it. Same with the phone book. Allow to fully colonize in a dark, warm place and birth in a high humidity environment.
