Agar powder used to make nutrient agar plates for mushroom-culture work.


Please follow this detailed blog explaning: How to make your own agar plates.


50g Makes about 2.5-3L of agar (1L agar makes roughly 30-40 * poured 90mm plates). This is pure agar powder so nutrients need to be added for optimum mycelium growth, i recommend using our >> agar nutrient mix with the agar powder when making plates, mixing in 4g per 100ml.


Agar work is essential for learning to clone and grow mushrooms from mushrooms. Makes growing mushrooms from spores easier as you can germinate the spores on the agar plate and see the mycelium grow -- allowing you to then even isolate your own mushroom strain!

"Excellent service!

Sporeshift have consistently got the best service of any online provider I have used. From the time of order to delivery the communication is great. I frequently wonder why other businesses can't to it the way they do. Excellence in action. And no, I am not their mother ... just a satisfied customer and mushroom lover. :)"
