Natural Habitat & Growth Patterns
The Grey Oyster Mushroom is a woodland dweller, often seen on decaying wood. It's a fan of temperate climates and enjoys a balanced humidity level. You'll often see it fruiting during the cooler months of spring and fall. Interestingly, it has a knack for breaking down complex organic materials in its natural habitat, making it a vital player in the ecosystem.
Thinking of growing this beauty? It's fond of substrates like hardwood and straw. For optimal mycelial growth, maintain temperatures between 70-80°F and around 75°F for fruiting. A humidity level of 90-95% is ideal. Regular fresh air exchange is crucial, and a bit of light can induce fruiting. Always be on the lookout for any signs of contamination.
