DO NOT GROW OUR NATIVE MUSHROOMS NEAR IMPORTED STRAINS.
Example: P. djamor (pink oyster mushroom) is so close to P. parsonsiae (our endemic mushroom) they may cross in nature ruining our endemic mushroom forever.

These dowels will keep for an extremely long time in your house fridge.
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.
As always these mushrooms are available to grow for anyone who grows 100% native mushrooms without polluting the environment with billions of unwanted imported spores.

I 've bought spawn from almost every commercial growers in New Zealand and tried growing for my own use for couple of years but always had quality issues so I never thought that I could grow these mushroom commercially. Since I 've found NZ growing mushroom group and NZhyphea supplies both knowledge and sharing value of our native mushroom so I gave it a go since March 2020,from then I never look back. Keep up the good work and spread our love of endemic and native fungi for our people in New Zealand. Thank you.
