Calocybe indica is a commonly cultivated tropical mushroom that responds easily to a variety of substrates and produces well on pastuerized straw and treated sawdust blocks. Peat moss based casing will encourage growth at the substrate surface. Mycelium of this species is cold sensitive and will die if refrigerated. As a result, this culture is only availble for shipping during the warm season, typically April through September.

*Note: Culture supplied as living mycelium in a test tube slant or grown on sterile media in a petri dish. Culture can be stored under refrigeration for several months. Slants are best suited for long distance travel, international shipments, or long term culture storage. To ensure freshness of culture, slant and plate requests are made to order, please allow 2-4 weeks for processing and shipment. Please choose between Slant or Petri Dish below.
