Perfect for a mushroom risotto... this is what you need!!

Great cold weather resistant mushroom. Grew easily for me in monotops and pyrex trays. Shared some with my elderly neighbors who absolutely loved their mushroom risotto. Grew my mycelium in a brown rice tek. Didn't get too many flushes. But also didn't really give it room to really grow. So much easier and faster to grow than the Nameko (which is also another beauty!!!). Namekos are only for soup in my opinion. MMM is the only place for spore syringes. (I can wait till he gets some corn smut syringes!!!)


I frequent MMM because every LC syringe is just THICK and FILLED with Mycelium. I cant wait for these pioppinos to start going. I have experienced very strong and bountiful strains from every syringe purchased here. Plus, Im always excited to see what freebies I get with my order making this the BEST site with greatest value! MMM FTW!

Can't go wrong

You can't go wrong with any liquid cultures from MMM! These grew great and haven't had issues/concerns with contamination of the culture. I've used 3 other vendors in the past and MMM is the vendor I keep returning to due to the reasonable prices and great quality!

Erik Mendez
Dense stuff!

As others have commented, MMM gets his LC syringes absolutely packed full of dense mycelium! Not too mention the genetics are top notch and aggressive!

Excellent Liquid Culture

Shipped well, arrived quickly, quality product all around. Looking forward to inoculating some grain with this culture! MMM is always my go-to for gourmet!


Very satisfied with my pioppino LC.
