What Is Liquid Culture?
Liquid culture is used as a starter culture for mushroom cultivation. It is used to either inoculate agar plates, sterilised grain for spawn production or to expand and create more liquid culture.
Liquid culture is often produced in jars with modified lids from a sterilised broth containing a specific ratio of sugar to water. This broth is inoculated with a mycelium culture. The mycelium will consume the sugar and continue to expand producing near infinite quantities of mycelium.
