Growing oyster mushrooms at home beganPractice more recently, only at the beginning of the century. But only at the very beginning of the history of home oyster mushroom grew according to extensive technology. Now this method is also relevant, especially for those who like to grow a culture in imitation of nature and for those truckers who always have a catastrophic lack of time.
Growing oyster at home in this old waypractice on logs, bars and pieces of other wood. In logs or sawn logs, drill holes and place in them pieces of mushroom head or mycelium. After that, carry the fungus "firewood" to a forest clearing and leave them there.
The method of growing oyster mushrooms "in imitation of nature"is extremely simple and does not require detailed consideration. In addition, this method has many drawbacks - the growth of fungi depends on the change in weather conditions, the yield is very low, and the overgrowing lasts three to four months. Hence, those who do not like to wait for the opportunity to collect the harvest of mushrooms at last, it is possible to recommend the cultivation of oyster mushrooms at home in a somewhat different way, allowing to get a good harvest of mushrooms, regardless of weather, but also of the season!
In fact, oyster mushrooms in the homeconditions on intensive technology is not at all difficult. To grow oyster mushrooms, a substratum is needed, which is best used for straw rye, barley or wheat. Straw must be dry, clean and free of mold and foreign odors. Straw can be crushed, and you can leave it unplated. Then, to prepare the substrate, you need to ram the straw into a large container, fill it with warm water, bring it up to 70 degrees with heating and hold for three hours. Then drain the water, cool and lay out the resulting substrate to remove excess water on any surface.
Now you can proceed to landing. To do this, polyethylene bags are used no more than 50 centimeters wide, in which the substrate and mycelium need to be laid in layers. After that, in blocks (so-called bags obtained with substrate and mycelium) at equal distances, you need to make small holes, into which the fungus will grow.
After that, the blocks must be carried to the basement and wait for the harvest. That's how you can grow oysters at home.
