Indoor cultivation is exceptionally easy as this species will grow on a very wide variety of substrates including straw, hardwood sawdust, paper by-products, soybean waste and much more. Mushroom should be picked when young, and preferably in clusters. Growth starts off as a fast growing white mycelium that ages to a pink color. Primordia and young mushrooms are bright pink but become less intensely colored as the mushroom matures. Flavor improves dramatically with thorough cooking.
