Lion's Mane Mushroom Liquid Culture Syringe
|Volume||10 cc / 10 ml|
|Shelf life||2 months (refrigerated)|
'Lion's Brain' (Hericium erinaceus) is a very productive commercial strain that produces plump, dense, "pom pom" mushroom clusters. It's a reliable producer that fruits best in cooler temperatures. On average, you can expect 1/2-1 lb yield on first flush off of 5 lb supplemented sawdust with consistent subsequent fruitings over several months.
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.

Lions mane LC syringe
Excellent! Order processed and received promptly as promised. LC worked perfectly. Classy touch with the information brochure.
Thanks so much, Sean! We really appreciate the kind review.
Great price and genetics
Extremely pleasant experience from ordering to shipping to growing it has been wonderful. Would order again from North Spore next time buying turkey tail
Thanks for sharing your great experience Sondra. We’re so glad everything is working out for you.
Great product and instructions
Easy to use, inoculated 2 grain bags with 1 syringe! Now just waiting for it to colonize!
We’re so happy you’re enjoying the experience, Nick! Please reach out if you ever need anything.
Love love love
All of the cultures I’ve used from North Spore have been great, and lion’s mane is no exception. I love the longevity that you can get out of these cultures using grain to grain transfers and/or multiple inoculations with each syringe. Super excited to keep trying more strains!
Am on my second grow of Lions Mane from a single syringe and can't believe the results! This is some fast colonizing mycelium! Put 2cc into sterilized quart mason jars of rye berry and shook them well for the first 2 days. A week later the jars were entirely ready to go! Used one quart rye to 5lbs. Masters Mix. Pics are from day 5 after pinning, probably well over 1lb each! Splines are maybe 1/8" long right now so they'll probably top 2lbs each when ready - first flush out of a potential 5!!! Bags cost this noob around $8.00 total to make (2x bags with Home Made Masters Mix, Rye grain, Bag, 2CC Mycelium). At $20 a pound at my local farmers market I'm looking at a potential savings of $64 on just the first flush alone! You cannot go wrong growing mushrooms yourself!
Lion's Mane liquid culture syringe
Very impressed with the quality of the syringe! I haven't got to use it yet. I bought it with another syringe of Wine Cap. They both were in the fridge a month before I got to use the Wine Cap syringe and the Wine Cap syringe blew me away and how aggressively it colonized. I have no doubt that this Lion Mane syringe will do the same Thank You Northspore!
LC arrived quick and is very vigorous! Already have 3 grow bags fully colonized and two grain jars ready to go! Can't wait see how well it does on agar and my home brew liquid culture! Can't say enough how great it's been getting supplies from North Spore. They're a great company and extremely helpful with some of the best customer service I've ever dealt with!!!
I placed an order for lion's mane LC and I'm very impressed with how quickly the spores colonized on agar (initial growth observed within four days). The attached photos are what most of the jars look like after three weeks of LC to agar. Excellent!
