Sporeless Oyster Liquid Culture (LC)
Pleurotus ostreatus var “Sporeless”- This is a variety of oyster mushrooms that is perfect for home cultivators. The spores of oyster mushrooms have been known to cause health issues with chronic and high concentration exposure; however, this variety does not produce spores! The lack of spores does not appear to alter performance and is highly recommend for home growers, especially those with a low tech set up that does not have the ability to exhaust spores outside.
Fruits best between 55-70°F but should fruit at ~50-75°F.
Sporeless oyster cluster grown by pleasuretek around 55°F. Verified no spore production with an 11.5 hour print attempt.

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.
Quality all the way!
Both LC’s were spotless and clean on 6 agar plates. Used them to make my own LC by taking it directly into new LC jar. Fast healthy growth, 10/10
Unfortunately the sporeless oyster had a pretty bad bacterial contamination, but I have had a generally good experience with this vendor overall in the last few years I've been ordering, hence the 5 star review! Also, I usually send cash and have had 0 issues with order fulfillment!
Thanks for your continued support my friend!
I do stand by my products, especially my gourmets, so I am happy to replace the Sporeless LC with one from a new batch. Send me an email and let me know you had issues with your Sporeless LC and I'll gladly get you taken care of.

It’s my first time growing mushrooms and I loved the boutique-like experience of ordering through mushroom man mycology. I needed my hand to be held a little, and he was so kind and helpful. The Sporeless oyster mycelium has far surpassed the timelines that I expected based on learning how to grow oysters. If this is indicative of the rest of the cultures I purchased, I’m an even happier customer than before. I will definitely be ordering more as I make more time for this wonderful hobby. Highly recommend.
Although I have just used the syringe, I have nothing but positives to say about the vendor, especially since I use cash in the mail (have for years) and have had nothing but positive interactions! 10/10, will use again.
I used this sporeless oyster syringe for my first foray into mushroom cultivation. I used the syringe to directly inoculate a jar of oats as well as starting a culture on agar. MMM provides quick, friendly service and easy payments through the email invoice option.
