Spore Syringes are a key component of growing mushroom kits at home! Our experts have fine tuned this simple and reliable process to ensure easy inoculation for both beginners and experts.
The ease of use and low risk of contamination make our Spore Syringes one of the most effective germination methods.

Spore Vials are easy to use, airtight containers with fungal spores inside.
By simply shaking the vial and injecting the liquid into your substrate, you can activate the mycelium to colonise and germinate.

Inoculate our Mondo spore vials or syringes to grow your own living culture!
Mondo Liquid cultures allow you to inject millions of tiny spores into a sterilised solution where the mycelium will develop. Once mycelium has developed in the vial, the hypodermic syringe is used to inoculate the substrate, creating magic mushrooms!
The advantages of Liquid Cultures are:
