Shiitake liquid culture produces a delicious edible mushroom that has been wildly popular in Asia for centuries. Their flavor can best be described as a combination of rich and savory mixed with umami. Characterized by medium-to-large brown caps, shiitake mushrooms traditionally grow in nature on fallen logs which is how they got their name—Shiitake is a Japanese word that literally translates to a mushroom (“take”) growing on a “Shii” tree (a type of chinquapin tree that is ideal for growing shiitakes). These nutritious and sturdy mushrooms are easy to grow for all skill levels, especially in warm and moist climates, and are a welcome addition to just about any meal you can imagine.
MYYCO was created to offer a superior alternative to mushroom spores. Unlike spores, making early-stage liquid cultures of mycelium allows us to isolate and replicate the fastest, strongest, and highest-yielding genetics. Our liquid culture does not require a germination phase, like spores do, meaning quicker and more reliable growth.
We are a team of mycologists with over 30 years of combined experience isolating and researching mycelium to create high-performing liquid cultures. Our 3,000 square foot mycology research lab is equipped with state-of-the-art mycology and sterilization equipment to ensure that every MYYCO syringe that leaves our facility has the highest quality genetics and has been medically sterilized.
When we started MYYCO, we decided that making a beneficial impact was more important than profits and that the mushroom world was the wrong place for a profit-first mentality. We donate 100% of our profits to 501(c)(3) organizations researching psychedelic therapy. Visit our Donation section to learn more and view our donation records.
Shoot us an email at [email protected] at any time during the growing process of your liquid culture and one of our mycologists will answer you within 24 hours. We want our customers to have an amazing experience growing mushrooms and will do whatever it takes to help make that happen.
100% of profits from every MYYCO sale are donated to leading 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations involved in therapeutic research of the psychoactive compound found in medicinal mushrooms to aid a variety of ailments… including treatment-resistant depression, PTSD, Alzheimer’s and end-of-life anxiety and depression. MYYCO is a registered California benefit corporation. If you have any questions regarding our philanthropic cause or want to help out in any other way, please reach out to us at [email protected].
