Despite the almost certain failure of the coffee grinds experiment, the oyster mushrooms in straw seems to be marching on towards the inevitable fry-up!

The leading fruitings are now a good inch or so across and consist of many little pinheads which I guess will each become a mushroom. I’ve moved the bundle nearer the window as I gather that UV is an important part of their fruiting development. The mushrooms “sweat” a clear liquid which is interesting too.

The larger growths are now about an inch or so across

A clear liquid is “sweating” from the fruit bodies

Not mush room in there…

If what they ask is within my power (and there’s nobody watching), I’ll do it. sheriji asked for a photo update after I was reporting my delight at one of my mushroom projects progressing… so here it is!
