Next week I’m going to purchase an Oyster farm kit box to give it a go. Ive done a mushroom growing course before that was US based but Id like to see what the Australian version is like besides I can use after-pay, making it easier on disability payments. The previous course I did taught to purchase spore and break it up into buckets with straw to make a one box kit into ten buckets but I cant use that many mushrooms and Id like to see how I go with one box before investing in a larger project. The recommended species by Amy at Little Acre Mushrooms were Snow Whites for the climate in my area. For $150 AUD you get a kit thrown in and the course for $100 with payments of $37.50 per fortnight. Ill see how my mushroom farming skills are then I may do something larger.

Snow White Oyster: Grows in 10°C to 24°C

The Snow White Oyster mushroom has an amazingly bright white appearance. Forming large white caps, this savory oyster mushroom is a fantastic protein swap in meaty dishes.

Warm White Oyster: Grows in 10°C to 30°C

The Warm White Oyster mushroom will be lighter in colour when grown at a warm temperature and a darker colour when grown at a cooler temperature. Forming dense bunches, this mushroom is a robust all-rounder.

Gold Oyster: Grows in 18°C to 30°C

Gold Oysters are beautiful and nutty. This tropical mushroom species is great tossed through a pasta or crisped up in a frying pan. Forming tight clusters of golden mushrooms, this variety will add some colour to your kitchen.
