Mycelium production and mycelium production technology
- Our core business is production and sales of mushroom spawn. We incubate on a number of special recipes, adapted to the species.
- We have mother cultures, mother spawn and spawn for sale for all strains of our strain list. If you wish to buy spawn of other species, we have many more in stock that don't appear in this list.
- Mycelia provides know how and training with respect to mycelium production for spawn, substrate, mushroom growing and lab design. We also evaluate and consult in existing spawn facilities. See Mycelia School for more details.
- Our patented spawn bag "Microsac" guarantees a perfectly controlled production and a germ-free end product, which remains active for an extended period of time.
Our current strain bank consists of over 150 strains and species, and we keep adding new species regularly. Check out our new arrivals!
Inonotus obliquus (source: Wikipedia)
commonly known as chaga mushroom (a Latinisation of the Russian term 'чага'), is a fungus in the family Hymenochaetaceae. It is parasitic on birch and other trees. The non-sporulating conk is irregularly formed and has the appearance of burnt charcoal. It is not the fruiting body of the fungus, but a a tumor-like outgrowth of the tree, mixed with fungal hyphae. It is mostly black because of the presence of massive amounts of melanin.
The fertile fruiting body can be found very rarely as a resupinate (crustose) fungus under the bark, which splits at the same time, usually appearing after the host tree is dead. I. obliquus grows in birch forests of Russia, Korea, Eastern and Northern Europe, northern areas of the United States, in the North Carolina mountains and in Canada.
