WHAT YOU'LL LEARN

Agar Media Making

Teaches you what types of solid media fungi love to grow onto and why balancing the ingredience is important when making fungus media

Shows you how to evaluate a the growth rate of a fungus growing on a particular medium.

You’ll also learn how to prepare Petri plates and tubes -solid media used in fungus tissue transfers.

Liguid Media Making

Shows you how water-based liquid inoculum is made -used in fungus spawn production

Fungus Tissue Transfers

You’ll watch a demostration on how fungus tissue transfers from plates into tubes or plates into plates are done the right way. This teaches you how to prevent and avoid possible competitors anxious to get the food that you’ve designed for other fungi

Mushroom Fruitbody Cloning

A show on how to clone wild specimens and/or grown gourmet and medicinal mushrooms

Spore Prints

Explains you how to get spore prints from wild/grown specimens, what media work and what mushrooms are more likely to easy germinate spores -this is useful when you’ll try to get new strains.

Culture Library

Teaches you tube and plate theory, how to build a culture libray and how to keep that in good conditions over time.

REASONS WHY YOU NEED THIS

  • Without these teachings there's no reason for you to start with lab training. This is the basis of every professional mycology lab or any spawn making facility, so make sure you learn these if you want to make mushroom spawn
  • All of these lessons are presented in movie format which make the whole thing easy to understand
  • Solid agar media will serve you to store fungi for long periods of time and check for competitors to ensure clean transfers when you want to make spawn
  • Liquid media will serve you when you want to cut time and get faster spawn. Just because when you use solid media will take more time to colonize a bag of spawn
  • The correct fungus tissue transfer it's a ritual that every serious grower should know to skip contamination related problems and material loss
  • Mushroom cloning will get you new strains so you can use em in mushroom growing. These may be collected from the wild or from other grown mushroom fruitbodies
  • Making spore prints is essential so you can get better more prolific strains that will help you get better crop yields
  • Once you start to play around with strains you'll want to make a strain collection for later use in the mushroom grow process. This info will help you understand what's important to look for when building your own culture library
