We are using White oyster mushroom (Pleurotus ostreatus). Both the Latin and common names refer to the shape of the fruiting body. The Latin pleurotus (sideways) refers to the sideways growth of the stem with respect to the cap, while the Latin ostreatus (and the English common name, oyster) refers to the shape of the cap which resembles the bivalve of the same name. Many also believe that the name is fitting due to a flavor resemblance to oysters.
Alex, who is with us now for over 3 months with his project of growing mushrooms. They just came out beautiful. Thanks Alex!
