Our best-selling organic sterilized grain spawn bag was formulated by mycologists to maximize the speed and size of your mushroom grow. Each spawn bag contains our proprietary blend featuring hydrated, nutrient-rich, organic millet and wheat berries. Bags also include a self-healing injection port for use with a spore or culture syringe plus a 0.2 micron filter patch to block airborne contaminants while providing even gas exchange. Note: Color of injection port may vary.

Spawn to bulk ratio

We recommended 1 lb of colonized grain spawn for every 5 lbs of manure or hardwood sterile substrate. We also recommend using 2.5-5ccs per 3 lb injection port bag. 

Why millet?

Millet has a much lower endospore load than rye and wheat, making it less prone to contamination. And its small size means your spawn will have many more inoculation points for the same volume of grain. By using millet, the mycelium will spread more evenly and abundantly through the substrate. And, as a high-nutrient medium, it also encourages rapid mycelial expansion.

Sterilization

North Spore grain spawn bags are sterilized in a commercial-grade autoclave. Sterility is verified using biological indicators and temperature sensors.
