The Maitake mushroom has been valued for centuries, especially in Asia. The mushroom’s nickname shows how special it is to people. Its popularity remains, whether for cooking, supplements or its suspected healing properties. The Maitake Liquid Culture Syringe is made from pure mushroom culture. These cultures are produced with high-quality ingredients. Liquid mycelium from these pure cultures works better than that from spores: it colonizes more consistently, faster and more reliably. The final product, the grain spawn, is also more effective than when made by older methods.
These items are further packaged in a zippered bag to further protect against contamination.
These instructions ensure that the liquid culture remains effective and usable for as long as possible.
Large-scale cultivation of Maitake requires a specific bulk substrate. You can use different hardwoods for this purpose, such as hardwoods (poplar, oak, alder, aspen, maple, birch, ash, beech, willow, elm) mixed with bran. Another popular mix is the “master’s mix,” which contains an equal ratio of hardwood sawdust and soybean hulls. Should you prefer a more natural approach, it is also possible to cultivate Maitake outdoors directly on hardwood logs.
