Pioppino Mushroom Grain Spawn - UK
The Pioppino mushroom has a firm texture and slightly nutty flavour, and is delicious in pasta sauce and stir fries.
Also known as the black poplar mushrooms, it is fast becoming a popular mushroom to grow due to the unique shape and texture, which has made it a popular variety with chefs.
This spawn pack includes:
- 2.8kg of quality Pioppino mushroom grain spawn
- 20 x Mushroom cultivation bags (can hold 1.5-2 kg substrate per bag)
Difficulty: Medium - Hard
Pioppino is best suited to more advanced cultivators who can control their growing conditions well.
It prefers cooler fruiting conditions (10 - 15C) and requires consistent 90%+ relative humidity.
Under elevated CO2 levels Piopinno will produce a long stem with a round brown / caramel cap on top. Under lower CO2 conditions the stem is shorter and cap larger.
