Hen of the Woods (Maitake) Liquid Culture Syringe
|Format||Syringe with needle|
'Birdie' Hen of the Woods GF1 (Grifola frondosa) is a favorite commercial strain from the West Coast for indoor cultivation on sawdust blocks. Its a reliable producer that is slow growing. On average, you can expect 1/2-1 lb yield on first flush off of 5 lb supplemented sawdust.
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.
Using liquid culture:
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. We also recommend sterilizing your needle before use.
