10 Pack now available on our game-changing Rapid Rhizo Agar plates!  The ultimate tool for serious mycologists! Our custom blend of top-quality nutrients and yeasts are specially designed to trigger rapid and aggressive rhizomorphic growth, making it easier than ever to isolate and identify the strongest genetics.

But that's not all - unlike other pre-poured agar plates that sit on shelves for weeks before shipping, our plates are made fresh daily for maximum potency and effectiveness. And to ensure the ultimate protection and freshness, each set of 5 plates are sealed in polyolefin packaging.

Our 10 Sterilized Malt Extract Agar Plates are the perfect choice for healthy mycelium colonies. Here's what makes them stand out:

  • Each plate measures 90mm in diameter and is made of durable polystyrene material.
  • 10-Pack
  • Our nutrient blend is perfectly formulated to promote fast and aggressive rhizomorphic growth in your samples.
  • The plates are pressure sterilized and poured in our state-of-the-art lab using a laminar flow hood, ensuring maximum cleanliness and purity.
  • To maintain their potency, please store the agar plates in the fridge and use within 3-4 weeks for optimal results.

We are excited to announce starting in April 2023 all our agar plates are now machine poured in our new clean room. We measure out the ingredients and add them to the MediaPrep machine and it blends and mixes, then sterilizes it for 30 minutes at 18 PSI and cools it to 145 degrees. Then it is pumped over to the dispensing machine that measures out 25ml per plate. The MediaFill shakes each plate as it passes a UV-C light. Each plate is capped and then labeled by the laserjet printer. This machine will ensure every plate has the exact same level of agar and much less room for any human error.

What is Agar? How do I use it?

Agar is a versatile tool used by mushroom growing enthusiasts to cultivate high-quality mycelium colonies. By squirting a tiny amount of spore solution onto an agar plate and incubating for a few days, white mycelium patches will begin to form, allowing you to select the fastest-growing and most robust mycelium for use in your growing project. With agar, you can isolate any mold without compromising your culture plate, a technique used by experts to grow the biggest and best mushrooms showcased on various forums.

    There are two distinct types of mycelium, namely tomentose (cottony) and rhizomorphic (threadlike) mycelium. Tomentose mycelium has a fluffy, fuzzy, or matted appearance, and this can be attributed to two factors. Firstly, it may have many genetic strains, and secondly, its hyphal strands may not spread widely enough to seek nutrients from the substrate, resulting in their close proximity.


    In contrast, rhizomorphic mycelium appears as a well-defined network of strings, which can be due to the growth of only one or a few genetic strains. Growers typically prefer rhizomorphic mycelium because it grows more aggressively and can colonize much faster, leading to more abundant flushes. However, this does not mean that tomentose mycelium should be discarded. It is a normal growth and can still produce good flushes.
