Do you want to make mushroom magic in a plastic box? Would you like to grow your own living cultures for almost any mushroom, and make your own grain spawn? If you've got a spore syringe you want to clean up, a liquid culture you would like to expand, or a mushroom you want to clone, then this course is definitely for you!
Join me in this course as I set up a budget mushroom laboratory on my living room table, using a Still Air Box (a plastic box with arm holes in it) to make a sterile workspace. I'll be cloning and spore-printing supermarket mushrooms to show you how to create clean living cultures on petri dishes, in liquid culture solutions, and in 'master slants' for long-term storage. I'll show you the step-by-step procedure from mushroom through to grain spawn so you'll never need to buy cultures or grain spawn again!
This is NOT a mushroom growing course - our focus here is on creating and expanding mushroom cultures to make grain spawn. If you want to learn how to grow mushrooms please check out my other course "Growing Mushrooms for Business and Pleasure" and come back when you've caught the bug!
What you’ll learn
- Cloning, using spores and growing living mushroom cultures from almost any mushroom
- Expanding cultures for growing a limitless supply of mushrooms
- Making grain spawn using petri dishes or liquid culture inoculation
- Selecting genetics for the fastest and best-quality grows
Are there any course requirements or prerequisites?
- Have a basic knowledge of mushroom cultivation
- Have some experience of growing mushrooms - whether using a kit or growing from grain spawn
Who this course is for:
- Mushroom growers interested in making and expanding their own mushroom cultures
