Brown-Gilled Woodlover - Hypholoma capnoides - Pure culture

Synonyms: Smokey Gilled Hypholoma

The Brown-Gilled Woodlover applies for connoisseurs as one of the favourite edible mushroom species with a pleasant, mild nutty taste. Hypholoma capnoides grows on conifer wood, but cultivation of this mushroom is still under research. While cultivation on conifer wood logs the results have been significantly positive, for indoor cultivation with mycelium bags a cultivation method has not yet been established. The cap of the Brown-Gilled Woodlover is orange to yellow-brown with a diameter of 2 to 7 cm, the stems are 5 to 9 cm long, the fruiting bodies occur in tuft-form. Hypholoma capnoides is widely spread all over Europa and can also be found in Austria. Especially when collected in the wild it may be mistaken or confused with the non-edible Sulphur Tuft Mushroom (Hypholoma fasciculare).

Living, actively growing, axenic Hypholoma capnoides cell culture, entirely free of other strains or contaminating organisms, for further multiplication. Our pure cultures are custom-made and produced fresh after ordering in a class 100 clean room environment on a solid culture medium (MEA) based on vegetable raw materials, it needs around 2 to 3 weeks until the culture is mature enough for shipping. The culture is supplied in special cell culture flasks (Filling volume: 15 ml culture medium, Growth area: 25 cm², Measurements: L x W x H = 79,7 x 42,6 x 26,53 mm) with breathable, hydrophobic membrane. This special design prevents introduction of contaminants and enables optimum gas exchange thanks to the high air flow rate of the membrane. In this packaging the mushroom culture can also survive longer shipping distance and time without loss of quality or germinative ability.

This product is intended for professional Hypholoma capnoides spawn production or further multiplication of this fungi strain. Working with pure cell cultures requires detailed mushroom cultivation skills. For beginners and hobby growers working with grain spawn or sawdust spawn is recommended.
