Oyster Mushroom <em>(Pleurotus Ostreatus)</em> variety H10


  • Fleshy medium/large sized mushroom.
  • Dark grey coloured mushroom, that lightens mildly when temperatures rise.
  • Very productive.

Growing Characteristics

  • Quick incubation.
  • It yields a crop in approximately 16–18 days, depending on the temperature and the kind of compost.


  • Temperature should not be allowed to rise for long periods over 30ºC during the INCUBATION period.
  • Sudden temperature changes should be avoided during the incubation period to prevent condensation in the substrate, that can cause bacteria problems.
  • Once the incubation period is ended, the temperature should be lowered slowly.
  • When PINHEADS start to be visible through the packs’ holes, ventilation intensity can be raised.
  • It develops easily in room temperatures between 15 and 19ºC.
  • During the GROWING PERIOD, relative air humidity should be kept between 80 and 84%.
  • CO2 levels should be kept as low as possible, maintaining the rest of the parameters.
  • Fruiting bodies should be harvested once the mushroom’s edge is straight and before it starts to break.
  • A mild and constant ventilation should be provided.


It is a very good quality mushroom for selling on a tray, or in bulk.
