All our mushroom cultures are only one to two transfers away from the 1st generation mother culture to ensure a vibrant, healthy, and fast-growing product.
Each liquid mushroom culture syringe contains 12 cc's of mycelium suspended in a nutrient broth solution or commonly referred to as a liquid culture. Unlike many vendors, our cultures do not contain honey, we use a special clear recipe so you can see exactly what you're getting. Your mushroom culture is guaranteed to arrive 100% viable and completely contamination-free ready to inoculate a substrate of your choice.
You may use your LC Syringe right away, or store it in its mylar container in the refrigerator for 6 months or longer!
Your order with us today will contain:
(1) sterile 12 ml syringe with locking cap and selected strain.
(1) mylar syringe sleeve for long-term storage.
(2) alcohol pads.
(1) 18 gauge needle.
WE SHIP EVERYWHERE
Worldwide shipping makes us the most turned to mushroom culture producer/distributor in the world. If you canï¿½t find it in your country, we have you covered and our shipping time is considerably less than what you may expect.
Cultural and morphological characters of isolates belonging to an entomogenous Paecilomyces species commonly found in Japan were investigated and compared with the literature. This species has not been recorded in major monographs of this genus, but identified as Paecilomyces cateniannulatus Liang described in 1981 from China. Mycelia on insects and media were pure white, and sometimes produce loose synnemata up to 10 mm. Growth rate of the fungus is moderate. The reverse side of colonies on SDY or MEA media are colorless to light yellow. Phialides are flask shaped with a narrow neck, 3.0ï¿½16.1ï¿½1.3ï¿½3.2 ï¿½m, often forming a whorl. Conidia are oval to short cylindrical, 2.1ï¿½ 4.6ï¿½1.3ï¿½2.4 ï¿½m, arranged in basipital chains. Conidial chains are often irregularly curved and sometimes form a loop. Early stage of the conidiogenous structure of this fungus resembles that of Beauveria, but is distinguished by formation of conidial chains
The entomopathogenic fungi, Isaria farinosa and Isaria fumosorosea were known as Paecilomyces farinosus and Paecilomyces fumosoroseus, for more than 30 years. Both fungi have a worldwide distribution and a relatively wide host range. While I. farinosa currently is of minor importance in research and as biocontrol agent, I. fumosorosea is regarded as a species complex, and various strains are successfully used for biocontrol of several pest insects, mainly whiteflies. During the past 40 years, numerous scientific papers on both fungal species covering various research areas were published. This is the first monographic review on the biology, ecology and use of I. farinosa and I. fumosorosea as biocontrol agents. In the following compilation, data on the identity, natural occurrence and geographical distribution, host range, production of metabolites, effect of abiotic and biotic factors (temperature, relative humidity, solar radiation, fungus, host plant) and on the use of these species in biocontrol experiments against pest insects, plant pathogens and nematodes in the laboratory and the field are summarised. Sections on their effects on non-target organisms and safety issues are also included. The aim of this review is to increase our knowledge on these entomopathogenic fungi.
