Gotta syringe culture of Phoenix Oyster the other day and I'm looking for an easy, fool-proof way to mess with it. Not really up for a straw log, time-wise.
Do Oysters require a "punch hole" in crowded plastic-wrap or will they fruit uncovered? Will they work on BRF (I'm guessing not)?
Any advice?

Oysters are primary and secondary decomposers,
as such they'll grow on just about anything,
including BRF, although I think doing pint jars
would be a waste of time for an edible like this.

Look in the phone book for "tree removal" and call around,
ask if they cut trees onsite (many do) and they'll
be happy to let you come over and fill up on sawdust bags.

Knock up grain jars w/ the syringe per usual, incubate,
then spawn to pastuerized sawdust. The sawdust can
be put into 5 gallon buckets if you want (have a lid) or just about anything, but plastic w/ holes
works the best IME.

If you get sawdust, and you have an option, get the
larger grain variety vs. actual saw-dust.

Oysters are lots of fun and will grow on ANYTHING,
but sawdust is the easiest to obtain / pastuerize, etc.
You can also use cardboard, corn husks, hell - anything
you have that's organic just about.

Go ahead and 'knock your jars and worry about the rest
next week.

BTW - I guess you could do pint cakes / BRF if you
don't like grains, then use the bfr cakes to spawn
something else.

good luck,

:-)

Thanks. That's what I'll do.

The culture's in the fridge. I'm gonna knock up some WBS then try either sawdust or straw. Otter work...
You pressed you, referring to me, which is incorrect. The correct answer is you.
