This oyster mushroom thrives in heat. Over 19°C it forms numerous clusters of pink fruit bodies with variable measurements (from 7 to 12 cm diam.). At lower temperatures, colour and form deviate. The mushrooms have no particular taste and are grown primarily for their decorative aspect. The mother cultures, (mother) spawn and substrate die at temperatures under 8-10°C.
