Stuff that's good to know

Storage instructions

It’s ideal to store your mushroom spawn in the fridge. It can be stored in the fridge for 2-3 months without losing its vigour. NOTE! There is one exception to this - Pink Oyster spawn (Pleurotus djamor) cannot be stored below 10°C or it will surely perish (sad!).

Shipping

Mycelium is heat sensitive and needs to breathe. To keep your mushroom spawn happy while it's travelling to you it's kept in a specialised mushroom spawn bag with filter patches. These 0.2 micron filters are made specifically for spawn production, allowing the mycelium to breathe across a large surface area for optimum gas exchange.

If you’re concerned with the possible temperatures of freight for your location, please contact us to arrange the best shipping method to ensure your spawn arrives viable and in good condition. For this reason we recommend choosing Express Shipping for all mushroom spawn orders.

What is the difference between mushroom spores and mushroom spawn?

Mushroom spawn does not equal mushroom spores!
Mushrooms release spores in order to reproduce. A single mushroom can release millions of tiny spores into the air in the hope that a compatible pair will meet up and land together on an inviting surface. This is the way mushrooms reproduce in the wild. In a crude sense, think of mushroom spores like the seeds of a plant. You can plant a row of the seeds from the same species of plant but you might get variations among the individual plants that grow. They are not identical to the mother plant. In mushroom cultivation predictability and control are our friends. We want to be able to exactly replicate the DNA of a strong strain of a single species. To do this we use spawn, not spores.

If spores are like seeds, then spawn could be likened to taking a cutting of a plant. We take a piece of tissue from the mushroom and grow that onto an agar plate. This grows the mycelium which we can transfer to sterilised grain. This becomes the mother culture, the mycelium of the strong species we want to grow again. We keep this mother culture and expand it onto more sterilised grain, continually replicating the desirable traits of the mother strain. The end product of mycelium on grain is called mushroom spawn. We use mushroom spawn as it is a much more reliable and replicable method to grow mushrooms.
