Blewit Mushroom Liquid Culture Syringe

Please note: Blewit does not grow well on pure grain and requires a compost amendment. We recommend 2:1 grain to compost.
Blewit (Clitocybe nuda) is an eye-catching mushroom that produces smooth, medium-to-large lilac caps. When cooked, they have a meaty texture that is quite satisfying. Their delicious flavor is mild but distinct, often described as mushroomy and woody with a hint of pepper. Blewit mushroom yields can be somewhat unpredictable, and they can pose some minor challenges with identification when grown outdoors. However, they can be quite rewarding to more experienced growers.
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:
For best results, refrigerate upon receipt. 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.
