Growing Parameters for Various Mushroom Species/ 185

C02: 10,000 ppm or above.
Fresh Air Exchanges: 0 per hour.
Light: Incubation in darkness.

Primordia Formation:
Relative Humidity: 95+ %.
Air Temperature: 75-80 ° F.
C02: 5,000 ppm or below.
Fresh Air Exchanges: 2 per hour.
Light requirements: Diffuse natural or fluorescent grow- lights.

Cropping:
Relative Humidity: 85-92%.
Air Temperature: 75-80 F.
C02: 5,000 ppm or below.
Fresh Air Exchanges: 2 per hour.
Harvest Stage: When the caps are convex.

Flushing Interval: 5-7 days.
Light: Diffuse natural or grow-lights.

Yield Potential: Not yet established.
Moisture Content: 90-92% water; 8-10% dry matter.
Comments: This rapidly growing species fruits readily on pasteurized straw provided a thin layer of
casing is applied (½ inch). No more than one week passes from the time of casing to the first flush.
Although the fruitbodies are small, the flushes are typically abundant. The degree of bluing seems to
vary with the strain and substrate.
