Why we love them:
Pink oyster mushrooms aren’t just strikingly beautiful. They are also succulent and savory, and are perfect sautéed or added to pastas, pizzas, and more. As a tropical oyster mushroom strain, they thrive with higher humidity and their color intensifies if given adequate indirect sunlight. Given their denser texture, pink oysters make a wonderful meat substitute. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can find recipes that use them in everything from burritos to bbq sandwiches. They even make amazing vegan bacon, too!
Our USDA-certified organic pink oyster mushroom kits are reliable producers and tend to yield large flushes of beautiful light pink to deep pinkish-red mushrooms when given adequate humidity. With continued proper care, you may be able to get multiple flushes. (We 100% guarantee your first flush of mushrooms, but hope you'll try for 2 or 3!)
That's not mold, it's mycelium!
Your kit includes an amended sawdust block fully colonized with mushroom mycelium. It may appear covered with a soft, white, mold-like substance - that's the mushroom mycelium! It is completely normal. The mycelium of some species is more prominent than others.
