This is a great species to have! It is incredible. It is very genetically strong. It is a super fast colonizer that will colonize almost anything. It also fruits easily with minimal effort and all you have to do is maintain a high humidity level and air it out twice daily. Keep it close to a window for best results. Temperatures in the mid 70's works best for this species. Starting from culture is not as hard as one might think. It provides a much faster colonization than spores would. Colonization should be visible within 2-3 days. We've seen similar cultures even smaller in size run houndreds of dollars! Now from E.T.Labs© we bring these awesome cultures for a very affordable price.
Reported Health Benefits: Oyster mushrooms are best known medically for their cardiovascular and cholesterol-controlling benefits. Oyster mushrooms contain mevinolin and related compounds which are potent competitive inhibitors of HMG CoA reductase (3-hydroxy-3-methyl-glutaryl coenzyme A reductuctase), the major rate limiting enzyme in cholesterol biosynthesis. In addition, they have been shown to have activity in the following:
anecdotal reports suggest improves liver and kidney function and helps gastrointestinal disorders. Research on mice suggest that it may have anti-tumorial properties (Ying 1987, Weil 1987).
PersistantHad wanted blue oysters for breaking down agricultural waste, but took these when the blues were sold out. Wasnt able to bring them to fruit, but the mycelium grew actively. A bit of a slow spreader for me, but that could be because of the materials I was using (old wood material, some of it). Not a single infection from this ET product!
