Inject the SpawnTubs through the integrated grey rubber injection ports, or remove the lids to inoculate using Agar or rapid Grain-to-Grain (G2G) transfers.
- Each SpawnTub is placed inside a PP bag and heat-sealed within our lab to ensure the entire tub is clean
- Integrated rubber injection port for safer needle inoculation
- Built-in HEPA air filtration in the lid
Included with Our STERILE SpawnTubs
- Chlorhexidine alcohol wipe
- Spare sterile needle
You will need
If inoculating with a gourmet spore syringe, you’ll require 1.5-2ml of solution.
For inoculating using G2G or Agar, you’ll need to either build or purchase a SAB or flowhood.
Are these sterile SpawnTubs suitable for me?
If you already possess healthy, clean colonised spawn in a jar and want more, there’s no need to begin the entire process with a gourmet spore syringe. There’s a more efficient, cost-effective, and cleaner method.
Opt for these SpawnTubs, transfer some of the colonised grains, and witness full colonisation in just a few days – far surpassing the spore syringe method.
Why start fresh with spores when you’ve already cultivated plenty of mycelium? That’s the essence of G2G.
However, if you’re new to cultivation, it might be best to familiarise yourself with our grow kits initially.
How do I use these sterile SpawnTubs?
Gourmet Spore or Liquid Culture Syringe
- Upon receiving the sealed SpawnTubs, carefully cut the bags open.
- Thoroughly clean the grey rubber injection port using the provided alcohol wipe.
- Inject 1.5-2ml of the solution down the side of the tub to ensure visible mycelium growth.
- Move each SpawnTub to a warm environment or incubator to initiate colonisation.
- For optimal growth speed, aim for 26°C. However, temperatures as low as 20°C are acceptable if you’re not in a rush.
- Ensure your SpawnTubs remain clean to prevent potential microbial contamination.
- Once colonisation completes, visually inspect for any signs of contamination before proceeding.
We ensure that every dispatched SpawnTub undergoes stringent sterilisation processes, offering you the best chance at successful cultivation.
In the unlikely event of encountering problems before usage, rest assured, we’ll address them. Answer a few of our questions, send over some pictures, and we’ll promptly identify the issue and send out a replacement SpawnTub for your convenience.
