Pholiota adiposa. A commercial strain from Maine producers Cap N' Stem. Clustering, wood-loving mushroom forms dense clusters of dark orange gilled mushrooms with a slightly shaggy cap. Chestnut culture plates prefer cooler temperatures. This species produces dense clusters of scruffy, tan-colored mushrooms that are highly prized by chefs. 

 

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.
