The bag has a microporous filter patch incorporated into it so gas can pass in and out but moisture stays in and contaminants are kept out. This is important as during mycelium growth phase, a lot of CO2 is given off and needs venting, but the medium must not dry out. In short, the bag creates and maintains the perfect environment for shroom growth. These bags are autoclavable.
Consists of a polypropylene box with an airtight lid that has a microporous air filter built into it. The filter allows gases in and out, while keeping out any contaminants (such as bacteria, or the wrong fungal spores) and at the same time keeping moisture in.
Erlenmeyer flasks are a necessity for every serious magic mushroom homegrower. They're perfect for sterilizing water (to make sporesyringes) and agar media. The narow neck drastically reduces the chance of contamination. Available in 4 sizes (25, 100, 250 and 500 ml).
Empty syringes to make your own spore syringes with. Syringes and needles are sterile and packed separately. Available in 2 sizes; 5 and 10 ml. Syringes can be re-used again and again, but sterilize them first for a period of 15-20 minutes in a pressure cooker (not longer).
Parafilm is often used in the laboratory industry to seal Erlenmeyer flasks and petri dishes with. It keeps bacteria out the door, while it does allow fresh air to come in. Total length of the Parafilm is 75 meters and its 5 centimeters wide. Parafilm is very flexible and it's possible to stretch it 3-4 times of the original length.
Double the colonization speed compared to the use of spores with the Mycomate Liquid Culture. Simply inject 1ml of spores into the vial and shake once a day and after 2-14 days you will see the mycelium grow. There is no need for a sterile environment. Can be stored at 4-6°C for over a year. This is the perfect solution for mass production, preservation, and trading of cultures.
When growing your own magic mushrooms at home, it's important to work as clean as possible. Latex gloves come in real handy at this point. Wear the gloves and clean them with some alcohol and get busy with your experiments. Box contains 100 latex gloves (non-sterile).
Just like you magic mushrooms don't like cold feet - at low temperatures they grow at lower rates and the percentage of aborts can increase significantly. Giving them a little extra care in form of a heat mat translates to faster colonization and fruit-body formation. Instead of cranking up the radiator use this handy small heat mat to provide cosy warmth to your brood.
Magic truffles are an acquired taste, to say the least. Chomping down on them releases the flavor molecules, and if you are sensitive to the taste, you might find chewing your truffles to be quite a task. This Magic Truffle Grinder made by Zamnesia will solve that issue with a quick twist.
One of the most essential accessories when working with fungi is a scalpel, preferably a sterile one like this. You can use it to cut out live tissue from a fruit-body or to scrape spores from the foil. As with all potentially dangerous tools, keep out of reach of minors and pets.
Did you ever want to grow magic or edible mushrooms from spore but had no idea where to obtain the substrate for doing it? This Bag Sterilized Rye is the solution! It contains 1400 grams of sterilized rye grain and is ready for inoculation. The fitted rubber injection port seals hermetically after injection. Spores or syringe with inoculant not included.
