Button Spore: The ideal substratum in which to grow the Button/Field Mushroom is mature Horse manure. Sprinkle the dry crumbled Mycelium over each mound then press in deeply. Keep each mound at an internal temperature of (16-20C) After two weeks cover it with 4-5 cm of soil. Keep the soil damp and after approximately 20-30 days after covering, you will see the first fungi grow. After the first harvest, water less frequently between the following harvests at 8-10 day intervals. Use a heating pad to raise the soil temperature to around (20-22C) for about three weeks or until you see the Mycelium, the tiny threadlike roots.
Golden Oyster/Oyster Eryngii Spore: Cut into pieces (2-3cm) long. Water for 1-2 days until it's all equally wet. Get some plastic bags to mix the wet straw with the Golden Oyster Mycelium fill the bag. Fold and close the top of each bag without sealing it so that the Mycelium can breathe and develop. Keep the bags at (25-28C) for 30-40 days until all the straw is covered with a white, pleasant smelling mould. Cut the top of each bag and open it as far as the mixture. Then cover it with 2cm of soil and keep it damp, the first fungi will begin to grow after approximately 15-20 days from the time the bag was opened. The ideal temperature for them to develop is between (15-25C).
Oyster/Poplar Spore: Use a clean corner in a cool dark room. Spread clean Cardboard on the floor, dampen and sprinkle with mycelium. Cover with the first layer of poplar logs, place other logs, more mycelium and so on up to a maximum of 5 layers. On the final layer distribute more Mycelium and cover with cardboard. Cover the entire mass with a clean cloth, dampen and then cover again with a sheet of polyethylene without sealing it. During the incubation stage (2-3 months) at a temperature between (20-28C), the logs will be covered in a white pleasant-smelling patina. Carry the sown logs to the chosen site for production (Garden, Fields, Undergrowth, etc.)and bury them 2/3 the way down in a sheltered place. Keep the logs damp and they will produce the following autumn until spring for the next 3 years.
