Hen of the Woods (Maitake) Liquid Culture Syringe
|Volume||10 cc / 10 ml|
|Shelf life||2 months (refrigerated)|
'Birdie' hen of the woods (Grifola frondosa) is a favorite indoor commercial strain from the west coast. It is a reliable producer that is slow growing, and when successfully cultivated, yields large, dense, delicious clusters! 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:
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.

Thought it didnt work but it works great I love North Spore.
I am new to mushroom growing and decided to start with maitake which in hindsight probably was not the best idea. I didn't realize how slow growing it was, I finally got it to take to grain, and its coming in nicely. I cant wait to fruit it in my Martha tent which I also picked up from North Spore.
