NZ Cultures

  • Product Description
  • Reviews

This giant Pleurotus australis mushroom spawn is the most prolific available in NZ. I grew out many observations and nothing comes near this culture. This grain spawn grows giant mushrooms unlike any other Pleurotus grain spawn available in NZ.  Our cultures are DNA sequenced by Landcare NZ. 

Once you have it this mushroom will become your absolute favorite.

Example: P. djamor (pink oyster mushroom) is so close to P. parsonsiae (our endemic mushroom) they may cross in nature ruining our endemic mushroom forever. 

You will not believe how fast our genetics move and how much you will harvest. They will never get tired as they have been cryogenically frozen to preserve their original state. Every couple of years we will wind back the clock and start again. This will keep our genetics as fresh as the day they were first cultured. No other supplier in NZ can offer you such high-quality genetics. 

NZ Cultures genetics are not imported and do not endanger our endemic mushrooms, in fact, they grow in harmony with nature helping to preserve New Zealand's genetics for future generations.

Can't wait

The hard part was finding rotten logs. I got a friend looking on the west coast.
I have got one log and can't wait until i can get some mushrooms.
Thanks Alan

Great so far!

I received the order very quickly and there were I think close to 75 dowels! They are all in logs, and I've been watering and watching every day.

P. Australis Received

Received rural south island in 2 days.

Stored in the fridge until 3 days ago when I got time to cut some Kanuka logs. I haven't checked for any activity yet, but I suspect it will be a while longer before anything shows up.

Bag of 50 had 56 plugs. I put 10 plugs into each log, but put the last 6 into a single one.

Ordered 3 more varieties but haven't decided which logs to use for those, so they're still in the fridge.
