Mushroom Spawn & Cultures Sale Agreement

Mushroom Spawn & Cultures Sale Agreement

1. Product Standard

Aussi Mushroom Supplies selected pure mushroom spawn is constantly screened and maintained to ensure vigorous and high yields. Mushroom quality is a reflection of the environment in which they are grown, and many of these selected cultures originate from the verdant wild woodlands of Australia and imported under strict permits from customs into Australia from commercial culture banks in the USA.

Aussi Mushroom Supplies pure mushroom spawn is grown and stored under tightly controlled laboratory conditions. Our laboratories achieve the category of Class 100 Clean Rooms, meaning they contain fewer than 100 airborne particles per cubic foot of air. Upon request, Aussi Mushroom Supplies can provide a manufacturer's declaration to support the import of our products into other countries such as New Zealand and many more.

2. Mushroom Spawn Use

Your ready to inoculate pure mushroom spawn will arrive in a 2kg grain bag (weights are approximate), both with microporous filters for sufficient gas exchange. Upon receipt, place your spawn at room temperature (approx. 70° F, 21° C) for approximately 24 hours.

After this recovery period, you can utilize the pure mushroom spawn for production or experimental trials. After the resting period we insist you conduct mini-trials from your spawn by growing out samples on suitable substrate. You are cautioned not to rely on the suitability or vigorousness of the strains until you have completed your mini-trials. Upon successful completion of mini-trials, you may grow out the spawn on suitable substrate. For questions about storage, substrate compatibility, mini-trials or other practical aspects of working with this mycelial spawn, you may contact an Aussi Mushroom Supplies customer service representative or refer to Growing Gourmet and Medicinal Mushrooms by Paul Stamets (Ten Speed Press, Berkley). Additionally, we offer intensive hands-on in vitro tissue culture workshops. Contact us for more details.
