If you’ve been looking for a simple and straightforward way to grow high-quality mushrooms at home, let us introduce you to the grey oyster liquid culture syringe from fufufungu. This syringe is pre-loaded with liquid culture and ready to use regardless of your degree of competence.
After producing spawn, this liquid culture can be utilized with a wide range of bulk substrates, including straw, paper, coffee grounds, coffee bean pulp, (bran supplemented) hardwood (poplar, oak, alder, aspen, maple, birch, ash, beech, willow, elm), and “masters mix,” to mention a few!
In terms of cultivation, the grey oyster liquid culture syringe can be utilized in a greenhouse with straw bales, coffee grinds, wood logs, mushroom patches, and indoor mycelium bags (needs laminar flow hood/sterile environment).
As you can see, there are numerous options for various sorts of growers. So, if you’ve been on the fence about mushroom cultivation, there’s never been a better moment to start. After only a few weeks, you’ll have a big harvest of oyster mushrooms that are high in vitamins, proteins, and amino acids.
- 1x 20ml liquid culture syringe
- 2x alcohol wipes
- 1x sterilised needle
- Use within 2 months after delivery. Store in a cool, dark place such as the refrigerator. Protect from UV light.
- 2–5ml per litre/quart jar of sterilised grain.
- Shake well before use. This helps to loosen the mycelium, ensuring an even distribution when applying the liquid to different substrates/spawn containers.
- After use, the liquid culture should be stored in the refrigerator. Dry thoroughly before replacing the protective cover to prevent rust from forming on the needle.
- Additionally, you can heat the needle with a lighter to evaporate residual water, before allowing it to cool. Once cool, replace the protective cover, secure the LC in a ziplock bag, and store it in the refrigerator.
- While more LC generally leads to faster colonisation, it’s not recommended to exceed 5ml per litre/quart jar.
- For grain still moist after hydration/sterilisation, less LC per litre/quart jar is safer, as excess water can lead to bacterial growth.
