Oyster Mushrooms

Fifth grade planted oyster mushrooms 5 weeks ago.  They did great for their first 3 weeks, but when they began to poke out of their mushroom bags, they did not fare well.  There just wasn't enough moisture in the classroom for them and too many books to be spraying extra water around.  

I took them home for the break and have been spraying them 3 to 5 times a day.  You can see below how well they have done.  These are daily shots of the same bunch.

And this is the largest bunch.
