- Pre-Poured Sterile Agar Plates for Mushroom Cultures
Pre-Poured Sterile Agar Plates for Mushroom Cultures
|Dimensions||90 mm x 15 mm|
These pre-poured sterile agar petri dishes are ideal for growing out fungal cultures, cloning wild mushroom specimens, and germinating fungal spores. Each dish contains pre-sterilized potato dextrose agar (PDA) or malt extract agar (MEA).
Pre-poured agar plates offer many benefits over pouring your own dishes. In addition to convenience, they are also less likely to contaminate your cultures because they are poured in a lab under an industrial-grade flow hood.
Storing unused plates:
For best results, use plates as soon as possible after receiving them. Store unused plates upright, at room temperature, and away from direct sunlight in the original packaging, preferably in a clean secondary container. (Unused plates can be stored upside down in the fridge. However, this can lead to condensation on the lid which can increase contamination risk.)
Storing plates with cultures:
Once cultures are added to plates, store them right side up in the refrigerator.

Great Agar Plates!
Have worked great for spore prints to agar, spore syringes to agar, transfers, and clones. Prefer the clear vs other plates that are colored. I find it easier to see everything going on in the clear plates.
We're so glad these are working well for you, Timothy! Thanks for the great review!
As always, a great product. Will continue to buy all my mushroom growing Needs from them.
Thanks for the great review, Wyman! We really appreciate your support.
Agar plates came clean and free of contamination. They worked perfectly for what I needed them for! Just placed a second order.
Thanks for sharing Jacob. We love to read reviews like this! It makes what we do all the more worth it.
If you need agar fast and shipped securely, you gotta get these top tier and inexpensive plates.
Thanks for the great review, Beverly! We really appreciate your support.
Perfect way to get into agar without having to do all the sterilization. I’ve opened the package of plates twice and had no issue with contam, despite only working in an SAB. Would buy again!
North Spore's pre-poured agar plates (petri dishes) were just what I needed to launch into this hobby. They really stepped up my "clone game" by saving me time and eliminating the hassle of sterilizing and pouring my own agar plates. Now I have a nice library of mushroom mycelium to be proud of!
Great and straightforward
It came in good time and was exactly as offered. I reordered
Great plates and great customer service
My first order was contaminated in transit. Reached out to North Spore and they sent me new clean ones very quickly! The plates are clear, very little condensation, and grew very fast! Used these to get very clean spore isolates for a breeding project. Have bought and will buy again! Thanks North Spore!
Pre made agar
First time using agar, seems great! Still have unused plates in the fridge that appear ready to use after several weeks
Excellent growth from my favorite mushroom spores. No contamination, just nice snowy white mycelium.
