A 10ml Syringe containing live Chaga liquid culture to grow your own mushrooms.


Chaga, also known as Inonotus obliquus, is a type of mushroom that grows on birch trees in cold regions, particularly in Siberia, Russia, and other parts of Northern Europe. It has been used for centuries in traditional medicine for its potential health benefits.

Chaga mushrooms have a dark, woody appearance and a hard, crusty texture. They are typically harvested from the birch tree and processed into a powder or extract, which can be used to make teas, tonics, and supplements.

Chaga mushrooms are believed to have a variety of health benefits due to their high antioxidant content. They are rich in polysaccharides, beta-glucans, and other compounds that have been shown to have immune-boosting, anti-inflammatory, and anti-cancer properties. Chaga mushrooms have also been studied for their potential to lower blood sugar levels, improve heart health, and support liver function.

While chaga mushrooms are generally considered safe for consumption, it is important to note that they can interact with certain medications and may cause side effects in some individuals. It is recommended to consult with a healthcare professional before using chaga mushrooms as a supplement or alternative medicine. ©

Liquid culture is a a nutrient rich broth made up of distilled water and mixed with light malt extract, dextrose and honey, to create a mix for the mycelium to feed on. You can think of mycelium as the mushroom seed, this can then be used to inoculate a grow kit or substrate mix to start grow mushrooms.

We regularly test all of our liquid cultures on agar and grain to guarantee you only get the highest quality culture.
