Phoenix Oyster Mushroom Grow Kit

Phoenix Oyster Mushroom Grow Kit


Pleurotus Pulmonarius

Phoenix Oyster mushrooms are the true summer oyster. They prefer warmer temperatures and can be distinguished from white-spored postreatus with their beautiful lilac-colored spore-prints. Most strains have all white fruitbodies, and this one is no exception. This strain was originally isolated from the ID tables at Oconee State Park, South Carolina growing out of a Virginia Pine branch. It will fruit on conifer wood, but the mushrooms are small. It prefers to fruit on hardwoods or can be grown on pasteurized agricultural waste, such as straw or cotton. This culture is great for mycoremediation projects and can also convert piles of conifer mulch and stumps into soil, and has shown high activity in breaking down herbicides. This mushroom is a treat to eat, has a soft, velvety, and sweet flavor reminiscent of anise, and is super easy to grow during the warmer months of the year

The Pink Oyster mushroom has a high protein content, several B vitamins, and all the essential amino acids (Marley, 2009). Its medicinal benefits include promoting anti-tumor activity and lowering high cholesterol. Oyster mushroom fruiting bodies and distillations have been shown to reduce tumor size in several studies on mice, rats, and hamsters (Hobbs, 1995). Additionally, Oyster mushrooms have been used in the Czech Republic as the main ingredient in a dietary supplement used to treat high cholesterol (Hobbs, 1995). Studies in animals have shown that a diet of Oyster mushrooms reduced the development of plaque in major arteries (Bobek et al., 1995).
