This liquid culture can be inoculated on sterilised grains to make mother spawn. This species generates a heavy yield with many mushrooms. A combination of large and small cap mushrooms can be achieved. Stem length may vary depending on the carbon dioxide levels. Fruit body grows to have a soft cap with a chewy, succulent stem.


All our liquid cultures are made inside our sterile laboratory that is being filtered by a HEPA14 filter whilst maintaing a sterile technique. More than 99.995% of particles above 0.3 µm are filtered, ensuring a sterile environment. Your liquid culture will come in a sterile bag alongside a needle, that once opened should be used as soon as possible to decrease the risk of contaminants.


We aim to have all our liquid cultures ready to dispatch whenever there is an order, but because it is a growing mycelium sometimes dispatch may take longer. We will get in touch if this is the case.


Note: The described information has been tested thoroughly and the optimum conditions have been listed. Because of this, results may vary if the appropriate conditions are not met.
