Maitake mushrooms are often referred to as Hen of the Woods because of their meaty texture. Commonly found at the bast of decaying trees, variations of Maitake occur naturally in North America, Europe and Asia. Maitake grow from sclerotium, a tuber-like structure roughly the size of a potato.
Grifola Frondosa Liquid Culture Syringe
What are liquid culture syringes?
Spore Printers Grifola Frondosa liquid culture syringes limit the possibility of contamination during inoculation. Each culture syringe is filled with 10cc of nutrient solution inoculated with mushroom spores to allow for mycelium growth within the syringe. This is the easiest way for beginners to inoculate bags and jars because it’s easier to control contaminants. Liquid Culture syringes also improve growth times.
How long do liquid culture syringes last?
Like any perishable item, the manner in which you store your specimen will determine the shelf life. We recommend that you keep your liquid culture syringes refrigerated unless otherwise stated in your storage instructions. You can store liquid culture syringes for up to 6 months refrigerated or up to 2 months unrefrigerated. If you need to store your specimens for longer periods, we recommend our Spore Prints.
