Those look so good.
Seeing all of the edible mushrooms you have been doing lately really makes me want to try to do some once we have the space for it.

Thanks for all the great comments!

D8, i am fruiting them in the open air on my dining room table. However, i am having some issues with RH because there is a central heating vent right by the table. I don't really have anywhere else to put them right now, so i am trying to ghetto rig something i can put over the vent to divert the air flow in another direction.

You know, i have no idea. :eusa_thin

I do know that it's lower in the winter because of the central heat and because of my dry skin, boo. I think that if we weren't turning the heat on, my oysters would probably be ok, it's that direct blast of warm air that's really doing them in.

Woke up this morning to more spores all over the place, but this time i can't tell where they're coming from! No sporecicles hanging off of anything, i am mystified. :eusa_thin Only one cap looks like it's really ready to drop (cap edges have flattened out) but the placement of it in the middle of a cluster doesn't seem like it would be the most likely candidate.

Thanks, guys! :)

I probably mist once an hour or so, mostly because as i have mentioned they are right next to a heating vent so there is warm dry air blowing near them all the time. Before we started turning the heat on, i only misted maybe 4 times a day and they did fine.

I just took a look at the g2g I did with some blue oyster spawn and it is eating the WBS quickly. I did some KSSS g2g at the same time and the oyster is growing at least twice as fast. I can't wait to get enough so that I can do this tek and have some tasty treats.

Chip i made the 2 bags as you can see, but made one of them twice as big as the other. I thought i would get a much bigger flush from the bigger bag, but they were about the same. Now i'm thinking it will flush more times before going kaput, but i'm not sure. Thought that might be useful info. :)
