NORTH SPORE Italian Oyster

Mushroom Liquid Culture Syringe

'True Italian' oyster (Pleurotus pulmonarius) is a dense oyster species that produces wavy, brown-capped mushrooms with a relatively low moisture content. They are a great farmers market species and add nice variety to mixed mushroom boxes. This strain is a popular commercial variety because it colonizes quickly and is a reliable producer.

Our liquid culture syringes are ~10ml and come sealed in a plastic sleeve with a sterile 16 gauge needle and alcohol wipe.

About liquid culture:

Liquid culture is mycelium suspended in a nutrient-rich medium. Syringes are beginner-friendly and ideal for those looking for an easy way to inoculate grain bags and jars. 

Using liquid culture:

For best results, refrigerate upon receipt. Syringes should be inserted into a self-healing injection port. Always handle using sterile technique and shake thoroughly before use. We recommended inoculation in either a still air box or flow hood to reduce the possibility of contamination. If you plan to re-use your needle, sterilize before and after each subsequent use.
