Pink Oyster

Pink Oyster - "The Flamenco"

Drama. Spectacle. Speed. 


Offering vigorous growth, heavy yielding, a pungent aroma, and bacon-like flavor, the Flamenco is evocative to say the least. Not to mention they’re absolutely gorgeous, easily resembling a bouquet of flowers when clustered together on their signature narrow stems. The Flamencos aren’t scared of the heat either as they thrive in, and actually favor warmer temperatures and high humidity. And if you’re looking to get that pink color as rich as possible consider keeping them in the shade. That being said, make sure they receive at least some light.
