Strain details:
The Pleurotus nebrodensis is a well know and much appreciated mushroom (especially in the Murgia barese area and Nebrodi mountains). The mushroom meat is compact and white. Its habitat is located in the graze areas of the Murgia and Nebrodi e Madonie mounts, especially in the spring. It's actually considered one of the most valuable artificially grown mushrooms.
After placing the bags in an appropriate flower bed or container, cut away the plastic wrap at the substrate level, and cover it with a layer of soil (1cm of thickness). Maintain the surface constantly wet, through subministration of nebulized water on necessity, once or twice a day.
