Grow your own edible and medicinal Grey Oyster with liquid culture syringes!


Grey Oyster mushroom grows in the forests of sub-tropical and temperate
climates of Europe. It is responsible for decomposing deciduous trees,
particularly the Beech tree. Interestingly, it is also carnivorous, consuming the
nematode which is itself parasitic This makes for a healthy way to control the
pest without using chemicals. Pleurotus ostreatus has been shown to have
statins and lovastatins that help in lowering cholesterol in the body, as well as
having antibacterial properties.* In fact, in 1950, it was observed that it inhibited a
wide range of Gram-negative bacteria including Salmonella and Pseudomonas,
and thus pleuromutilin was created, one of the first antibiotics isolated from
mushrooms.

Grey Oysters grow individually or in clusters and take on a shelf like shape. It has
a f an or oyster-shaped cap spanning 5–25 cm and whitish to grey in color. Like
many mushrooms, it should be picked young for consumption as it becomes
tougher as it ages and its taste and smell deteriorate. It requires a lot of fresh air
exchange in order to grow but is generally fairly easy to grow. It is light sensitive
however and should be grown in black bags, nursery pots or buckets with holes
in them.
