Himematsutake, also known as the almond mushroom or Agaricus subrufescens, is a type of edible mushroom that is native to Brazil, but is now grown and consumed in many parts of the world. It is a brown, umbrella-shaped mushroom with a mild, nutty flavor.

Himematsutake has been studied for its potential health benefits, particularly its immune-boosting properties. It contains polysaccharides and beta-glucans, which are believed to stimulate the immune system and help the body fight off infections and diseases. Himematsutake also contains antioxidants, which may help protect against cell damage and reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as cancer and heart disease.

Himematsutake can be consumed in a variety of forms, including fresh, dried, or in supplement form. It is often used in traditional Chinese medicine as a natural remedy for a variety of health conditions, including cancer, diabetes, and high cholesterol. However, more research is needed to fully understand the potential health benefits of himematsutake and its safety when used in large doses or for long periods of time. ©

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!
