Warm Fruiting Shiitake Liquid Culture (LC)
Can fruit above 18°C (~65°F)
It should be able to fruit at about 50-75/80°F.
These pins formed in the bag after they were kept in my basement as winter was approaching and temps dropped.

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.
This liquid culture was clean, no problems with contamination. And as always, customer service is the best around. He’s quick to answer any questions and super friendly!
Top notch samples, as always! MMM 4 life
MMM a class act ; items arrived fast, some nice stickers thrown in. The LC’s were packed and thriving in their syringes. Already put to grain/expanded LC and growing strong have worked with MMM gourmet genetics - I have Yet to see any contamination - clean.
I've ordered at least 6 times and have been more than impressed every time with the quality and customer service every time. No complaints.
I made a liquid culture master backup of these genetics and my health took a downturn, leading to my leaving it untouched in the library fridge. Still alive over 8 months later! Just a one quart mason jar, too. Great products and great service from MMM!
Amazingly viable culture, completely colonized grain spawn in only a few days! Had my tent set at 78° and no problems whatsoever with fruiting. Multiple flushes. As usual MMM delivered a quality product, couldn't be happier! This is the only vendor I get my cultures from. Keep up the excellent work my friend!
