Spawn for hobby mushroom producers | 4th generation of mycelium | 1 liter Microsac. Mycelium inoculated from mother spawn bottle or bag. Certified axenic mycelium on sterilized grain, meant for further multiplication. Each portion is double-tested and axenic and is packed in a sealed Microsac. Recipe: adapted to the needs of the species. Client-specific recipes are accepted from 2000 litres onwards. Different pricing may apply.

*Primordia are induced by a shock. For most mushroom species, this is done with a thermal shock, which is defined by the minimum temperature during the day-night cycle.
†Mushroom weight immediately after harvesting, and wetted substrate weight prior to inoculation.
