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 Wine Cap 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.
