DID YOU KNOW...
At our March meeting, some people took home an Oyster mushroom fruiting bag. Oyster mushrooms are popping out from our test bags as you can see above (this bag belongs to MCG's senior advisor, Suzanne). The variety is Pleurotus sajor-caju purchased from Northwest Mycological Consultants CS-32, Batch 3011 Unit #21 This is an easy cultivation method developed by Milton Tam of the Puget Sound Mycological Society. The method is written up in the most recent issue of Fungi Magazine. Our club will be doing cultivation workshops for people to learn this process.
