Colonized agar culture for making grain spawn or adding to your own culture library. We are continually working with our mushroom strains to improve and maintain their vigour, regularly updating our library with better or unique NZ native strains as we find them.
Our Grey Oyster (Pleurotus Pulmonarius), Pink Oyster (Pleurotus Djamor), Shiitake (Lentinula edodes), and Enoki (Flammulina velutipes) are all imported commercially viable strains selected for optimum fruiting characteristics, best yield and disease tolerance while maintaining robust flavour and texture.
Cultures will be sent out on a 90mm Agar Plate as pictured. Agar colour may vary, we use colouring to keep track of strain lines and agar mixes.
We have imported commercial strains as well as NZ Cultures available.
