A 10ml Syringe containing live Wine Cap liquid culture to grow your own mushrooms. also commonly known as garden giant, burgundy mushroom or king stropharia


Wine Cap Mushroom (Stropharia rugosoannulata), also known as Garden Giant, is a type of edible mushroom that is native to Europe but is now widely cultivated and consumed in many parts of the world. It is a large, robust mushroom with a reddish-brown cap and a thick stem.

Wine Cap mushrooms have a meaty, savory flavor and a firm, slightly chewy texture. They are often used in stews, sauces, and vegetarian meat substitutes, as well as in garden soil restoration projects due to their ability to break down organic matter and enrich soil.

Wine Cap mushrooms are low in calories and high in nutrients, including protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals. They are also believed to have a range of potential health benefits, including anti-inflammatory and immune-boosting properties.

Wine Cap mushrooms are typically grown in outdoor garden beds or wood chips, and can be harvested in the late spring to early fall. They are easy to cultivate and can be a sustainable and nutritious addition to a home garden or local farm. ©

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.
