Plate cultures are ideal for growers looking to make master bags, inoculate grain, make liquid culture, or make more plates.

Our reishi plates are made to order in our in-house lab using medical-grade petri dishes. If properly stored upon arrival, they have a shelf life of approximately 6 months. Reishi plates should be stored in the refrigerator to maintain viability. Note that mycelium cultures require basic lab skills. Handle using sterile technique to prevent contamination.

'Rudolph' reishi (Ganoderma lucidum) is our favorite indoor reishi strain! It produces dense colorful antlers and, when given more time and proper gas exchange, will produce brownish-red shelf-like caps. Reishi is an extremely low maintenance indoor species to cultivate.
