Liquid cultures are a great way to maintain relatively sterile technique without expensive lab equipment. Decreased contamination means increased success in growing mushrooms!

Liquid cultures can be stored in a refrigerator to preserve the viability for months (even years). We recommend using them as soon as possible to benefit from their peak vitality.

Syringes do not come with instructions. Please research growing techniques before purchasing. Resources can be found on our Learn to Grow page. Note: You can do this exact process without a glove box with great success!  We recommend flame sterilizing the needle in between each transfer
