Advanced

This species presents unique challenges that make it difficult to cultivate.

Cordyceps, a genus of more than 400 species within the order Hypocreales, are commonly known as vegetable caterpillars, or caterpillar fungi. Cordyceps militaris parasitizes insects It forms a small, 3- or 4-centimetre (about 1.3-inch) mushroom-like fruiting structure with a bright orange head, or cap. Cordyceps militaris is notorious for being a particularly tricky fungus to cultivate. This is understandable due to its extremely selective and strange food choices in the wild. Many non-insect substrates have been tested out including beans, lentils, quinoa, and rice. Based in many reports and empirical testing, rice has by far rendered the most abundant yields (1). White or brown rice are promising and economical choices.


Our live Cordyceps Mushroom Liquid Culture Syringe contains an isolated biological sample nurtured, tested, and expanded here at Liquid Fungi. Each Cordyceps Mushroom Culture is guaranteed 100% contaminate free, or we will replace it at no cost to you. Every mushroom culture syringe contains a proven high-output isolated sub-strain for maximum Cordyceps Mushroom yield and minimum incubation time. Every purchase includes a sterile individually packaged hypodermic needle for injecting substrate. Mushroom culture syringes are used by laboratories to easily transfer isolated biological samples between locations and substrates without risk of contamination. Mushroom syringes should never be used to inject humans or animals for any reason.
