Nameko Liquid Culture (LC)
Known commonly as Philiota nameko or simply Nameko. Very popular in asian dishes and has a great nutty flavor.
Intermediate difficulty- the fruits need to be kept in high humidity and grow somewhat slowly compared to a beginner species like an Oyster or Lion’s Mane.
Fruits best at 50-65°F.
Pin size at stage of opening bag for fruiting.
Growth of ~7 days from above pin picture. Temps ~50-55°F. This was a few days before harvest, largest caps had veils ripped.
All gourmet liquid cultures (LCs) are provided with a 16g needle (in the manufacturer’s packaging) and come in 10 mL capped syringes. They will be labelled on the plunger and are grown in a 2% malt extract solution. Shake well before use.
