The Mushroom substrate kit MycoMate® Fast Fungi is the best way to grow mushrooms if you want the flexibility of using your own spores, but do not want to make mushroom substrate. You still have the full mushroom growing experience and feel like a real pro.
Why use a MycoMate® Fast Fungi kit?
This MycoMate® Mushroom substrate is developed to grow mushroom fast and be as fool proof as can be. It includes a vial of Liquid Culture to make a mushroom culture from the spores, which make it even faster to develop.
- Sterilized Mushroom Substrate
- Use your own spores
- Easy Spore injection
- Liquid Culture included
You can choose your mushroom spores from a selection of spores vials we include to the product. The mushroom spores vials come with a 20% discount if bought together with the MycoMate® Fast Fungi.
Please notice that substrate shipped with a spores vial or syringe can be seen as intent to grow, we recommend to order these items seperatly if you are not sure about the status of growing mushrooms in your country.
Use for research only!
Why spore vails?
The spore vails are a unique way of handeling spores, we prefer them over spore syringes for a few reasons:
- Non Static: no spores sticking to vail
- Easier to Handle
- Better shelflife and storage
With Liquid Culture
You can inject the spores in the MycoMate® Liquid culture and let the spores germinate here. The mycelium grows in the Liquid culture vial. Using Liquid Culture will strengthen the mycelium, shortens the colonization time and gives a higher success rate.

MycoMate® Fast Fungi Instructions
Before you start. Make sure your work environment is clean and has no draft if you cultivate mushrooms. Wash your hands and wrist before handling the mushroom substrate kit with hand disinfectant. As extra protection use gloves and a face mask.
Lay out all the materials you need on a disinfected work space. You will need:
- MycoMate® Fast Fungi substrate bag
- Mushroom spore syringe or Liquid Culture with germinated mushroom spores,
- A lighter or spirit burner
- Alcohol preps
- Disinfectant spray
Prepare your mushroom spore syringe with 5-10 ml of spore solution or Liquid Culture. This is enough spores to inoculate the MycoMate® Fast Fungi substrate.
- Locate the injection port on the substrate bag. Open the injection port by pulling the cap off and clean it with an alcohol prep.
- Now get your spore syringe and heat the needle, red hot, with a lighter to make it sterile. Let the needle cool off for a few seconds.
- Inject the needle of the syringe into the port. Add 2-3 drops of mushroom spore solution in every corner of the substrate and in the middle of the mushroom substrate bag.
Every drop of spore solution is a point were the mycelium will start to grow.
To let the mycelium grow and colonize the substrate you must keep the MycoMate® Fast Fungi in a dark space with a temperature between 23* -27* degrees Celsius.
After 1-5 days you will see the mycelium starting to grow from the spots were the spores were dropped. The mycelium looks like cotton and becomes more stringy while developing and colonizing the mushroom substrate.
It takes 2-4 weeks for the mycelium to colonize the substrate in the bag. No empty spots of substrate should be left.
Wait an additional 5-7 days to make sure the inside of the substrate is colonized by the spores too. Now that mushrooms substrate is fully covered by the mycelium the kit is ready to be prepared for fruiting.
Growing mushrooms with the MycoMate® Fast Fungi
When the substrate is ready (fully colonized) the fruiting process can be started. It is time to grow mushrooms!
First ready the vermiculite.
- Mix the vermiculite with 100 ml of water in a clean bowl.
- Stir till all the water is absorbed and the vermiculite is moist.
Now get the mushrooms substrate bag:
- Grab the plastic bag in the middle and cut it open 3-4 cm above the substrate.
- Add a layer of the moist vermiculite on the substrate. Spread it evenly over the cake, do not press it.
Put the prepared substrate in the fruiting bag. This bag forms your grow chamber.
- Mist the grow chamber to get the humidity up. Always spray against the sides of the fruiting bag, never on the substrate or mushrooms.
- Close the grow bag by holding the top a few times and fix it with a paper clip
Pick a warm and bright spot for the kit. Do not put the grow kit in direct sunlight. Optimal temperature is 22*C-25*C. Keep the fruiting chamber moist, by spraying water every 2 (two) days.
The first pins can appear within several days and up to two weeks. When the mushrooms are mature harvest them for the collection of the spores or consumption.
Re-hydrate by misting the kit after the harvest to create a new flush of mushrooms. Two till tree flushes of mushrooms is what you can expect form the Fast Fungi substrate.

- Good guys, good product
I fawcked up everything when growing my shrooms. Kept the LC at too low temperature, the spawnbag at too high temperature, and fiddled with the cake as if it was my GF. Still i got 18g dried mushrooms divided on 6 flushes. Between the 4th and 5th flush I even dropped the cake from 160 cm height, making a mess on the floor. I lived through all the horror I had. Customer Service were exceptionally good. I called them many times, sent e-mails and pictures, and they always answered within 24 hrs. Love'em! I've tried nepal, think I'll move on to Cambodia next time. Peace out! (Posted on 7/18/2012)
