High-quality Laboratory Grade Agar for Mushroom Cultivation

PERFECTLY BALANCED: Our recipe is designed to provide a balanced source of nutrients required for growing mycelium.

SAVE TIME AND MONEY: Our pre-poured agar plates are a perfectly balanced nutrient-rich growing medium that will save you time and money vs pouring your own plates.

GENETIC ISOLATION: Agar plates can be used for isolating mushroom genetics by taking a tissue sample from a donor mushroom. The mycelium will grow and may be further isolated or transferred to grain bags.

SPORES TO AGAR: Agar is a great medium to clean up spore prints and germinate spore swabs. Easily remove contaminates and isolate healthy mycelium.

STERILIZED AND READY TO USE: Our agar plates will arrive sterile and in ready-to-use condition.


Pre-poured Agar dishes for fungal growth and contamination detection.

Provides a perfectly balanced nutrient-rich base with gelatinous agar. Both our PDA and MEA agar formulas are ideal for spore germination and culture sample transfers.

1. We recommend that unopened plates are refrigerated (not frozen) so they last longer Plates should be used within 30 days.

2. When ready to use, remove the Petri dishes from the refrigerator and let them warm up to room temperature for about 30min to 1hr.

3. Add samples to the plates

4. Close the lid and turn the plate upside down so that the lid is on the bottom and agar is on the top.

5. Incubate plates at about 65-77°F, and keep a thermometer nearby to monitor the temperature.

6. Fungal colonies should be visible in several days.

    I’ve bought these agar plates 3 times now. All three times my order has arrived within a week and I have not gotten a single plate with contamination. I use these for Spore germination and cleaning up spore prints. I hope you come out with a peptone blend soon that I can use for clones! Keep up the good work!
