Light: Yellow oyster mushrooms need light to have some light to grow, but it should not be direct sunlight and it does not need to be a significant amount of light. You can determine if there is enough light for your yellow oyster mushroom kit to grow by considering whether or not you can comfortably read a book in the area. If you can, then the kit has enough light to produce fresh yellow oyster mushrooms. Buy Yellow Oyster Mushroom Kit Online.
Humidity: You should mist your kit a few times each day so it keeps the humidity level appropriate for the kit to fruit. As mentioned above, a relative humidity in the 85% range is ideal. You will see little baby mushrooms forming after about five or so days, and that is what we call the pinning stage. These baby mushrooms will continue to grow until they are full-sized and ready to harvest, which should be within two weeks of starting the kit.

First, you can try using a plastic bag as a humidity tent. You can do this by taking a plastic bag and draping it loosely over the blue oyster mushroom kit. Make sure there is still enough airflow that the kit will receive fresh air. This is a necessary part to fruiting mushrooms.
Another option is to use a plastic tote or bin. You can place your blue oyster mushroom kit in the plastic tote with the top off. Mist the sides of the tote to keep them wet, and the bottom too if you would like. Just make sure the kit does not sit in standing water or it may lead to mold growth.

Using a tote with the yellow oyster mushroom kit inside and a small fan blowing over the top of the tote has been a method many people have used to increase humidity levels indoors while using their yellow oyster mushroom growing kit.
CO2 and Airflow: The levels of CO2 greatly affect the shape of the yellow mushroom fruited bodies. You need to have fresh air flow for the mushrooms or you may end up with mushrooms that grow poorly.

If you noticed the stems of your yellow oysters getting fatter and wider than the mushroom caps, then you probably need more fresh air exchange where the kit is located. This is common in situations where people use humidity tents. Adjusting the amount of airflow will help the mushrooms normalize in their dimensions.
Cutting holes in your kit: You will need to cut holes in the plastic that your yellow oyster mushroom kit comes in before you begin misting it. You can mist the substrate directly through the hole you make. We recommend using the broadside of the kit to cut the bags. The fresh mushrooms will grow towards these holes, seeking the environment of greater oxygen content. Buy Yellow Oyster Mushroom Kit Online.

Eating the yellow oyster mushroom
