Strain was acquired through Penn State University to ensure quality/DNA.
Matching strain from Michigan State University will be tested here shortly also for redundancies.
We have successfully grown morels in the lab on multiple petri-dishes/agar media. Currently we are working on understanding their environmental needs and how we might tailor that to indoor practices like traditional mushroom farms.
Morels will soon be a fully cultivated mushroom for year round market production.

This is possibly the smallest morel ever identified and also ever recorded in lab settings.(above) The morels could be seen with the naked eye. We had 2…

Upon arrival we cloned it on agar media, and then also cloned it in a liquid culture. Tissue containers and petri dishes were used in testing the first batch to test…
