Pleurotus Columbinus. This is a very productive commercial strain of blue oyster from Pennsylvania. It produces dense clusters with dark gray/blue caps. It produces best in cooler temperatures but also performs well during the warmer months.

About liquid culture:

Liquid culture is mycelium suspended in a nutrient-rich medium. Syringes are beginner-friendly and ideal for those looking for an easy way to inoculate grain bags and jars. 

Using liquid culture:

For best results, refrigerate upon receipt. Syringes should be inserted into a self-healing injection port. Always handle using sterile technique and shake thoroughly before use. We recommended inoculation in either a still air box or flow hood to reduce the possibility of contamination. If you plan to re-use your needle, sterilize before and after each subsequent use.
