    Product description

    His nickname testifies to the special value that people attach to it. Whether used in dishes, as a supplement, or for its health benefits, the Maitake mushroom remains beloved. The Maitake Liquid Culture Syringe contains liquid mycelium, produced from pure mushroom cultures with high-quality malt and yeast extracts. This liquid mycelium is more effective than that prepared with spores, ensures faster, more even colonization and the final grain brood is 20% more active than that prepared with conventional techniques.


    These items are further packaged in a zip lock bag to further protect against contamination.

    • 1x 10ml liquid culture in a syringe
    • 1x alcohol wipe
    • 1x sterile needle


    • Add 2–5ml to each liter or jar of sterilized grain.
    • Shake the liquid culture well before use
    • Be patient after inoculation. The Maitake mycelium has a slow and sometimes irregular growth. It may seem like no growth is happening, but the process has probably already started.

    After use

    • Store it back in the refrigerator.
    • Dry the needle thoroughly before replacing the protective cap to prevent rust.
    • Optional: Use a lighter to heat the needle and evaporate any remaining water. Then let it cool before replacing the cap.
    • Place the liquid culture in a ziplock bag for extra protection and place it back in the refrigerator.

    These instructions ensure that the liquid culture remains effective and usable for as long as possible.

    What substrate do we grow on?

    Growing Maitake on a large scale requires a specific bulk substrate. You can use different types of hardwood for this, such as hardwood (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 soy hulls. If you prefer a more natural approach, it is also possible to cultivate Maitake directly on hardwood trunks outdoors.
