Edible Mushroom Liquid Culture Syringe 10cc, with sterile needle and alcohol swab.

Cordyceps militaris has been referred to as pretty much the coolest mushroom ever.  Sometimes called the Scarlet Caterpillarclub, it is found mainly in grassland and on woodland edges but also occasionally pushing up through bare soil during late summer and autumn. Growing on underground pupae of moths, this ascomycete parasitises its host, turning it into a mushy mess and then pushing up through the turf as a bright orange club.  Fortunately they can be grown on substrates that aren’t insects

Cordyceps have been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for centuries to treat fatigue, sickness, kidney disease and low sex drive.  You can read more about modern day research here.

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.
