Our king oyster (Pleurotus eryngii) liquid culture grows mushrooms with sizable white stems and tan caps, offering a meaty texture and rich umami flavour when cooked. This variety, a bit challenging to cultivate, does well in cooler temperatures but needs careful humidity control to prevent drying. While primarily producing one flush, attentive care can lead to additional harvests.

Instructions

We recommend performing inoculation in a still air box or flow hood to reduce the possibility of contamination (although, it's still possible to get good results without these tools.)

Always handle syringes using sterile technique, ensuring they are thoroughly shaken before use, and insert them into a self-healing injection port. If you intend to reuse your needle, sterilize it before and after each subsequent use.

For a visual demonstration of this technique, watch the video below.
