Our mushroom liquid cultures are pure living mycelium suspended in distilled water and a specific blend of high quality malt and yeast extracts to provide an optimal protein and carbohydrate balance to support healthy growth and optimal colonisation times.

Using live liquid cultures over spore prints or spore syringes is a much faster and more reliable way to grow mushrooms with good genetic qualities.

Growing mushrooms from liquid cultures means you don’t have to wait for germination time of spores which can often take 1 – 4 weeks; it also means you’ll have a high quality, proven mushroom strain to grow, and not have to ‘gamble’ with using a multi-spore syringe.

Our live liquid cultures are very easy to use, you simply inject the culture direct into sterilised substrate and colonisation will start immediately.

All of our liquid cultures are made in our own laboratory from pure mushroom cultures and are taken from our current master supply which we use for our commercial growing operation. All cultures are guaranteed to be 100% clean from any contaminants and are continually tested to ensure health and vitality of the strain.

Most liquid mushroom cultures should be stored in a refrigerator until use. If stored correctly in the fridge, cultures can last for years. Only certain tropical species like the Pink Oyster should be stored at room temperatures.

Each liquid culture is sold in fully labelled and leur lock capped 10cc syringes (1cc/10ml of liquid culture is recommended for 100-500g of hydrated sterilised grain). All orders come with 1 x sterilised 18 gauge needle and alcohol wipe to help with inoculation.

    Arrives well packaged, are always clean and viable. Represents a cost effective and quicker way to grow mushrooms. Always had large flushes and coupled with their grow kits, makes it a breeze for anyone to get into.

    quality liquid cultures. I always test to be contam free before making spawn, always are. HMR seems to do things properly which is why I always go back to them.

    Cheap, fast, easy way to grow mushrooms. Tested on agar plate first as I always do, contamination free. Seems to be fine for spawn expansion into their sterilised rye grain bags. Well packed and fast delivery. No complaints – Grant

    Ordered 3 oyster strains, all grew healthy mycelium, colonisation time is very quick. I’m looking forward to harvesting my mushrooms! Many thanks for the free delivery and free shop coupon code!

    Pink Oyster Liquid Culture Review.

    Background: I’m a novice grower, I’ve used a few grow kits in the past and was intrigued to take my skills onto the next step. Pink oysters (and I think most of the other oyster mushrooms) are some of the most aggressive strains perfect for the beginner grower.

    I’ve so far grown mushrooms on cardboard, spent coffee grounds (don’t use fresh grounds, they are too acidic as I’ve found) and chopped up straw (quite messy preparation though).

    Great culture. Many thanks.
    George 🙂
