Pleurotus ostreatus var “Sporeless”- This is a variety of oyster mushrooms that is perfect for home cultivators. The spores of oyster mushrooms have been known to cause health issues with chronic and high concentration exposure; however, this variety does not produce spores! The lack of spores does not appear to alter performance and is highly recommend for home growers, especially those with a low tech set up that does not have the ability to exhaust spores outside.
Fruits best between 60-70°F but may fruit at ~55-75°F.
