Almond Agaricus Mushroom Liquid Culture Syringe
|Volume||10 cc / 10 ml|
|Shelf life||2 months (do not refrigerate)|
Please note: Almond agaricus does not grow well on pure grain and requires a compost amendment. We recommend 2:1 grain to compost.
Almond Agaricus (Agaricus subrufescens, syn. A. blazei, A. brasiliensis) is a fast substrate colonizer in the button mushroom family that has a lovely almond scent. Just like button mushrooms, Almond Agaricus grows in compost and manure-based substrates. They’re an ideal mushroom for those with some experience with other mushroom species, like Wine Cap or Oysters.
Our liquid culture syringes are ~10ml and come sealed in a plastic sleeve with a sterile 16 gauge needle and alcohol wipe.
About liquid culture:
Liquid culture is mycelium suspended in a nutrient-rich medium. Syringes are beginner-friendly and ideal for those looking for an easy way to inoculate grain bags and jars.
Directions for use:
Do not refrigerate almond agaricus liquid culture syringes. Syringes should be inserted into a self-healing injection port. Always handle using sterile technique and shake thoroughly before use. We recommended inoculation in either a still air box or flow hood to reduce the possibility of contamination. If you plan to re-use your needle, sterilize before and after each subsequent use.
