Acid Shroomz – Rusty Whyte Liquid Culture Syringe: Grow Your Own Shroom Stash
Rusty Whyte is a fairly robust shroom bred by crossing Albino A+ and Colombian Rust Spore cubensis that you can now grow in the comfort of your own home using a liquid culture syringe from Acid Shroomz.
Rusty Whyte was born in 2014, thanks to the efforts of a mycologist known as PastyWhyte. Once he was satisfied with his effort, he launched the variation in 2018, which soon acquired popularity among psychonauts. This medium-sized shroom has thick clusters of fruit with small caps and thin stems. Its name comes from the fact that it is white with rusty-colored spore deposits.
Because of its potency, this strain is best suited for intermediate psychonauts. It is believed to send consumers on a pleasant trip that leaves them feeling insightful and intimately connected to the world.
Rusty Whyte is an excellent project for individuals who have prior experience growing mushrooms. The most convenient method is to grow straight in an all-in-one bag or kit. For those who want to get their hands dirty, consider making a fruiting chamber out of grain spawn and a manure- or coco coir-based substrate.
For best results, the substrate temperature for incubation should be about 23-27°C with 100% RH; for fruiting, keep the temperature at 21-23°C in a fruiting chamber or an all-in-one bag.
- 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.
