Golden Oyster liquid culture – Grow your own mushrooms with our easy to use mushroom grow kits, grain spawn and mushroom growing supplies.


The golden oyster mushroom (Pleurotus citrinopileatus) is a type of edible mushroom that is prized for its delicate texture and mild, nutty flavor. It is named for its vibrant golden color, which is similar to that of the oyster mushroom.

The golden oyster mushroom is native to East Asia, but it is now grown commercially in many parts of the world. It is a fast-growing mushroom that can be cultivated on a variety of substrates, including sawdust, straw, and coffee grounds.

In addition to their culinary uses, golden oyster mushrooms have been studied for their potential health benefits. They are a good source of protein, fiber, and vitamins, and contain compounds such as beta-glucans, which have been shown to have immune-boosting properties. Golden oyster mushrooms also contain antioxidants, which may help protect against cell damage and reduce inflammation in the body.

Golden oyster mushrooms can be used in a variety of dishes, such as stir-fries, soups, and pasta dishes. They can also be roasted or grilled as a side dish or appetizer. ©

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.
