Community spawn is my gift from NZ Cultures to the people of NZ after the sad events that are facing the peoples of the world. NZ Cultures bring you this super cheap spawn to help bring food to the people of New Zealand in a time of need. 

This is an extremely rare type of Pleurotus pulmonarius also know as the Phoniex oyster from a private island off the coast of New Zealand.  Unlike the oyster found on the mainland of New Zealand, this one resembles P. ostreatus. This mushrooms grain spawn grows much faster than P. parsonsiae giving you much more chances of success. 

This is the most prolific P. pulmonarius in our collection so far and has a much stronger flavour than P. parsonsiae.

No other native culture of P. pulmonarius is like this one it is completely different from the native mainland oysters. A must-have and delicious breakfast mushroom.

Pleurotus pulmonarius culture #11

DNA Verified by Landcare NZ and stored in the international collection of microorganisms of plant pathogens using cryogenics. 

This mushroom spawn will keep for an extremely long time in your house fridge.  Great to keep a bag in case of an emergency.

Please do not grow native mushroom spawn around imported mushroom spawn it is clear this species is complex so there may be some more new names for these natives coming soon. 

The imported mushroom is completely different but as they are all in the same Pleurotus pulmonarius clade they are interfertile with each other. Genetic pollution is no joke and has taken over many endemic species of NZ, this type of threat can lead to effectively breeding out our own species. If we all play a helping hand then maybe we can preserve these genetics for future generations.
