    What is Agar? How do I use it?

    Agar plates have been used for decades by mushroom growing enthusiasts and are becoming more popular again. You start by squirting a tiny amount of spore solution on the plate. Incubate for a few days and white mycelium patches begin to form. Agar lets you choose the fastest growing and most robust mycelium for use in your growing project while being able to isolate any mold without ruining your culture plate.

    Isolating a culture is how the experts grow the biggest and best mushrooms, the ones you see in pictures on the many forums. After you choose your mycelium colony to use, create a still air box or use a flow hood and cut a piece of the agar out and place into a spawn bag, spawn jar or liquid culture to grow. Working with agar seems intimidating and prone to contamination but with the chloramphenicol added, the risks are much lower and easier than you can imagine!

      • Sterility

      • Moisture content
      Cons:
      • Packaging
      • Bubbles
      Good, sterile, nutritious and not dry. My only complaint is the packaging. It was all wrapped up as a single unit making it impossible to simply remove one from the stack without having to rewrap the rest. A minor issue. A few of them also had a bunch of air bubbles.

      Great product!

      after ready tons of reviews on various pre pourred agar plates, making the decision to go with midwest growkits was the right choice! All the plates were poured evenly, with minimal condensation and no contamination! The shipping was quick to WA state and can I say the way the green agar with rhizo growth looks after the first couple days is awsome, will be purchasing all my agar plates from miswest!

      Combined with a laminar flow or oven method, these should eliminate contamination once and for all.
