As the name suggests, their main distinguishing characteristic from other members of the genus is their striking blue colour which starts of as a deep blue during pinning and turning to a smoky grey as the mushroom matures.

A second cluster which took off at the same time stopped growing and dried up even though they were under the same conditions…fun though!
The blue oyster mushrooms grew very well, as advertised, and they were delicious.
I bought this as a gift and they loved it! They sent photo updates and it was easy to use and grew very nicely. The service was also excellent! Certainly a cool product which I will for sure purchase as a gift again.
start quickly and growing really well....
