Shiitake Mushroom Liquid Culture Syringe
|Format||Syringe with needle|
'Acorn' Shiitake LE2 (Lentinus edodes) is one of our favorite commercial strains for indoor shiitake block production. Similar to our '207' strain, Acorn shiitake fruits best at colder temperatures and tends to produce mushrooms with large caps and smaller stems. Yield averages are .75-1.5 lb first flush off of 5 lb supplemented sawdust blocks.
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.
