Default Re: Going to buy the Tissue Culture kit

Based on my experience, propagating or culturing mushrooms, you don't need a sterile environment and don't even need to use tissue culture methods, it would be an overkill. For one, some edible mushrooms overpower other microbes easily, and next is that it is quite easy to harvest and select for the edible mushrooms visually.

Of course if you are doing it commercially, large scale when labor gets expensive, tissue culture would really improve quality and cut down on labor.
