NORTH SPORE Hen of the Woods (Maitake) Liquid Culture Syringe

'Birdie' hen of the woods (Grifola frondosa) is a favorite indoor commercial strain from the west coast. It is a reliable producer that is slow growing, and when successfully cultivated, yields large, dense, delicious clusters! On average, you can expect 1/2-1 lb yield on first flush off of 5 lb supplemented sawdust.

Our liquid culture syringes are ~10ml and come sealed in a plastic sleeve with a sterile 16 gauge needle and alcohol wipe.

About liquid culture:

Liquid culture is mycelium suspended in a nutrient-rich medium. Syringes are beginner-friendly and ideal for those looking for an easy way to inoculate grain bags and jars. 

Using liquid culture:

For best results, refrigerate upon receipt. Syringes should be inserted into a self-healing injection port. Always handle using sterile technique and shake thoroughly before use. We recommended inoculation in either a still air box or flow hood to reduce the possibility of contamination. If you plan to re-use your needle, sterilize before and after each subsequent use.
