I’ve grown your oyster Mini Farms, what’s the main difference?
The Oyster mushrooms are very aggressive growers. It takes them 3 weeks (after making a bag) to fruit but the Shiitake needs 3 months.
As a consequence, the oyster Mini Farms are usually ’spent’ after 3 months where Shiitake can go 10+. Being aggressive the oysters will often have very large flushes or yields, where the Shiitake has less, so are spread out over a longer time.
Another main difference is that we remove the bag from the Shiitake but leave it on for the Oysters. This is because the Shiitake grows a protective skin, and the Oyster doesn’t.
