ALL THESE JARS ARE INTENDED FOR EDIBLE GOURMET MUSHROOM CULTIVATION.
READY TO USE
Has been used for the cake method or for casings with more nutrition than our standard LGBR + Verm. Mix. (Long grain brown rice + Vermiculite). Now updated in 2019 to include other more nutritious flours.
Very easy to use, ready to inject, sterilized and vacuum sealed. Produces large flushes with excellent nutritious fruit bodies. High quality select birdseed with nutrition coat soaked and pre-pressure cooked in mineral water, to absorb maximum moisture. Lasts a lot longer and produces much more transferable nutrition and moisture than other substrates. The rice flour in mix is used as an immediate source of food (nutrition) and the Birdseed Mix is a slow release nutrient that all mycelium LOVES! and slowly eats its way inside the seed's core. Magnificent Casing substrate, that colonizes FAST.
This mixture (substrate) is very easy to use, and comes sterile and ready to inject with your choice mushroom. All mixed and put together for you. The sterilized substrate filled jars come in a vacuum sealed bag to guarantee sterility.
This mix is good for beginning/advanced cultivators, because it is the simplest and easiest mixture to work with, but adds support for casing and spawning techniques as well with the addition of the seed mix. Good for all species.
This particular mix will stay together nicely, and is one of the best and easiest to do the CAKE METHOD with.
These JARS are guaranteed to be delivered sterile.
All jars come with an extra fine dry vermiculite top layer that rests between the substrate and the lid. This layer has been proven very effective in filtering oxygen and allowing a CO2 exchange even in a non-sterile environment.
For wild, gourmet, or exotic species or strains, read up a bit about their preferred growing environments and substrates. Most mushroom species can be started from this mixture, but might require a casing or a transfer into of a certain kind of soil, compost, dung, or wood mix.
It's great for starting spawn and for testing cultures before you work with larger substrates. We still use these jars to test cultures for viability and growth factors in small scale.
