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


Chestnut mushroom, also known as Pholiota adiposa, is a type of edible mushroom that is commonly consumed in many parts of the world. It is characterized by its chestnut brown color and firm texture, and has a slightly nutty, earthy flavor.

Chestnut mushrooms are versatile in cooking and can be used in a variety of dishes, such as stir-fries, soups, stews, and pasta dishes. They can also be roasted, grilled, or sautéed as a side dish or appetizer.

In addition to their culinary uses, chestnut mushrooms have been studied for their potential health benefits. They are a good source of protein, vitamins, and minerals, and contain compounds such as ergothioneine, which has been shown to have antioxidant properties. ©

All of our liquid cultures are prepared fresh for every order in our lab and we use a flow hood when carrying out all work to ensure clean cultures & packages.


Liquid culture is a a nutrient rich broth made up of distilled water, 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.


Different mushrooms require different care and conditions to grow but with the right conditions and coupled with our liquid cultures and grow kits you can grow your own mushroom easy! We offer a wide variety of easy to use grow kits and mushroom growing substrates. We’ve done all the hard work to save you the time and energy. By growing mushrooms in bags this way you can have more control over the environment throughout the whole growing cycle than if you were to grow outside.


We recommend using your Chestnut liquid culture as soon as possible to ensure maximum freshness and healthy growth. If you cannot use it right away then we advise storing your culture in the refrigerator for up to 3 months.
