Reishi Mushroom Plate Culture
|Culture format||Agar plate|

Plate cultures are ideal for growers looking to make master bags, inoculate grain, make liquid culture, or make more plates.
Our reishi 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 6 months. Reishi plates should be stored in the refrigerator to maintain viability. Note that mycelium cultures require basic lab skills. Handle using sterile technique to prevent contamination.
