tl_files/V1/images/cultures/landing/cultures.jpgFungi Perfecti offers ready-to-inoculate, pure mushroom spawn and cultures of over 25 different mushroom species. We maintain stock of these species for use as inoculum into bulk substrates.

Please note: unlike our ready-to-grow Mushroom Patches and Plug Spawn, our Sawdust Spawn, Grain Spawn and Cultures do not come with instructions. It is up to the purchaser to familiarize him/herself with the techniques of sterile mushroom tissue culture to properly use these products. The books Growing Gourmet & Medicinal Mushrooms and The Mushroom Cultivator are essential texts in this field.

Turnaround time for most orders is 2–6 weeks; each order of spawn or cultures is custom-generated at the time of the order, and grow-out times will vary. Please check the availability and estimated date of shipping for your spawn when ordering. We do our very best to insure that quality spawn is produced. We can not, however, be responsible for the condition of spawn once shipped. Under some conditions we prefer to ship via UPS 2nd Day Air to insure viability; we will contact you prior to processing your order if we deem a shipping upgrade to be necessary. If the spawn arrives defective, it will replaced at no charge provided we are notified within 48 hours of delivery and the defective spawn is returned. Since we cannot control the methods by which this spawn is used, no promises or claims about yields are made (there are simply too many factors involved). This spawn is being offered as a service. We encourage all commercial cultivators to develop sterile culture skills to create their own spawn. Promoting sterile culture is our business.

Strain Collection Mission Statement

Fungi Perfecti is dedicated to preserving the fungal genome and actively search for new strains from old growth forests. Primarily centering on saprophytic mushrooms, our goal is to capture as many phenotypes as possible through tissue culture cloning.

With the loss of habitat, especially ancient forests, we feel the importance of biological diversity can not be overstated. We hope to do our small part to help preserve the fungal biome by bringing into culture ancestral strains before they are lost forever.
