Agaricus Mushroom Plate Culture

Plate cultures are ideal for growers looking to make master bags, inoculate grain, make liquid culture, or make more plates.
Our agaricus plates are made to order in our in-house lab using medical-grade petri dishes. If properly stored upon arrival, they have a shelf life of approximately 3 months. Agaricus plates should NOT be stored in the refrigerator. Store at room temperature, away from direct sunlight. Note that mycelium cultures require basic lab skills. Handle using sterile technique to prevent contamination.
