Pre-Poured sterile Water Agar (WA) Petri Dishes Plates with parafilm
Uses- Wild mushroom and spore cloning, isolating very bad contamination cases.
Pros- Mycelium grows fairly fast compared to contamination, so it is easier to isolate them
Cons- Very slow-medium
Each mushroom has unique genetics; capturing its best attributes is a simple but valuable skill. If you have encountered a wild mushroom or are in love with a specific strain, these dishes are your best tool. WA is an efficient medium for mushroom tissue propagation. That is due to its low nutrient value, which reduces the chances of other contaminants from thriving. On the other hand, mushroom tissues will colonise the medium under the right procedures.
Moreover, this product is a powerful and simple educational tool for learning cloning techniques. We believe that cloning mushrooms is simpler than growing them. We encourage beginners to experiment with common mushrooms from the supermarket, such as the Portobello / White Button species, to learn to clone. In this way, when growing or foraging mushrooms, this skill will come in handy. We recommend using at least 5 WA plates for cloning the desired tissue. This will help purification and increase the chances of success.
Your purchase includes:
- Your choice of quantity of 10 WA Petri dishes.
- 10x Alcohol wipe
- 10x Parafilm pre-cut strips
- Detailed Cloning instructions (Including the best part of mushroom flesh to use for maximum success).
These plates are to be stored at room temperature. Do not store them in the fridge unless fully colonised.

- Pre-sealed to avoid contamination
Agar-Agar is extracted from various seaweeds, such as gracilaria and gelidium (It contains no animal ingredients. Due to Agar’s unique gel properties and stability, it is used as a firming and thickening agent for Petri dish experimentation.
