Strain | Italian Oyster

Pleurotus pulmonarius - PP37

Italian Oyster prefers cooler temperatures and is a great strain for both production on logs and production on pasteurized substrate. Italian will have delayed pinning indoors on substrates during warmer months and may beed to be moved into a cooler fruiting area once colonized. This strain produces brown, thick-capped clusters with short and tender white stems.
