Golden Teacher Liquid Culture GT is a strain of Psilocybe Cubensis that is world famous, and well domesticated. Many claim that this mushroom is highly resistant to contaminants, and is a fast colonizer, in the wild. It is certainly a favorite of Source of Spores, and we believe it is a must have for anyone who is serious about collecting cubensis spores.

Many reviewers have discussed this strain’s readiness to fruit in the wild. Reviews that say it is highly adaptable and will fruit on any substrate. From our own research we can say that most of these reviews are true. From what we have seen this strain is a agressive producing robust rhizomorphs, and dense clusters of pinhead mushrooms that rarely abort as they are maturing. GT is also a fantastic spore printer, laying super dark and thick spore prints.

GT may be one of the most reliable, and domesticated of all the cubensis strains commercially available. Our liquid culture syringes of golden teacher are incredibly cloudy, filled with live culture, due to the level of live production these mushrooms are capable of. If you’re looking for a chill strain, that is reliable and contamination resistant, GT is certainly for you.

Advantages of Liquid Culture

  1. Faster Colonization: Liquid culture can accelerate the colonization process compared to traditional methods. Mycelium can spread more quickly through the liquid medium, resulting in faster growth and less susceptibility to contamination.
  2. Consistency and Replication: Liquid culture provides a highly controlled environment, allowing for the replication of desired genetic traits and characteristics. This consistency can lead to more predictable yields and outcomes.
  3. Inoculation Efficiency: When using liquid culture, it’s easier to inoculate multiple substrates simultaneously. This efficiency is particularly beneficial for those looking to scale up their cultivation efforts.
  • Faster result: The cultivator no longer has to wait for spores to germinate, thus reducing incubation times by at least a week.
  • Limitless Mycelium growth: 1cc spore solution can be used to create a limitless amount of liquid culture. Because once mycelium starts developing, it keeps developing.

Understanding Liquid Culture:

Before we delve into the specifics of the Golden Teacher Liquid Culture, let’s first understand the concept of liquid culture itself. Liquid culture is a modern cultivation technique that involves growing mushroom mycelium (the vegetative part of the fungus) in a nutrient-rich liquid medium. It provides a sterile and controlled environment for mycelial growth, enabling enthusiasts to propagate and multiply their mushroom strains with precision.

Creating Golden Teacher Liquid Culture:

Creating Golden Teacher Liquid Culture involves a series of steps that require attention to detail and a sterile environment. Here’s a simplified overview:

  1. Prepare the Liquid Medium: A nutrient-rich solution is prepared by mixing ingredients such as water, malt extract, and other additives. This solution provides essential nutrients for mycelial growth.
  2. Inoculation: A small piece of Golden Teacher mycelium (taken from a mature mushroom) is introduced into the liquid medium. This serves as the “starter” for the liquid culture.
  3. Incubation: The inoculated liquid culture is placed in a sterile environment and allowed to grow. Over time, the mycelium will colonize the liquid medium, forming a network of branching threads.
  4. Expansion: Once the liquid culture is fully colonized, it can be expanded by transferring a portion of it to new jars or containers of fresh nutrient solution.

Is it possible to multiply your spore supply and make your inoculation and incubation process faster and more efficient?

In the wild the mushrooms produced by the Golden Teacher have these characteristics:
  • Thick rhizomorphic mycelium
  • Quick colonization times
  • Aggressive mushroom production
  • Meaty stems with medium to large caps
  • Bruises bluish to greenish where injured

Our liquid culture syringes are guaranteed to make your mouth water as soon as you see them. There are so many golden teacher alive in these syringes, and this will make finding a viable sample for your microscopy needs be very easy. remember to pickup some chocolate on the way. No one makes better chocolate than us!
