Beware: The official Ben branding has been having an overly MOIST moisture content lately. Remember; you do not have to cook the rice! It is pre-cooked, sterile, and ready to eat or inoculate off of the store shelf. The microwave times are to just warm it up for a nice, warm meal.

Tasy Bite 90 Second Rice is a little more expensive from Amazon, but the moisture content is a lot better. Find it at your local Dollar Twenty-Five Tree stores in the USA! Remember; you do not have to cook the rice! It is pre-cooked, sterile, and ready to eat or inoculate off of the store shelf. The microwave times are to just warm it up for a nice, warm meal.

Minute Rice cups are great to inoculate, let colonize, and then spread your substrate on top to fruit your mushrooms directly from the rice cup! They are cheaper at your local supermarket. Remember; you do not have to cook the rice! It is pre-cooked, sterile, and ready to eat or inoculate off of the store shelf. The microwave times are to just warm it up for a nice, warm meal.

This wide paper tape comes with 6 rolls and 2 dispensers - PERFECT every time for adding breathable gas exchange to your 90 Second Rice.

70% Isopropyl Alcohol is the better choice for proper sanitization for many different scientific reasons. If you end up with 80% or above, it's best to dilute it.

These atomizer spray bottles are great to use for your 70% Isopropyl Alcohol / Still air box water & dish soap mixture!

Cheap disinfectant spray is always great to have on-hand to get good sanitizing surface coverage of your work area before you get to work growing mushrooms! Most people get by with just 70% Isopropyl Alcohol.

These larger bag clips are great for clipping-off areas of your 90 Second Rice for various reasons shown in my videos.

It's always great to cover your hands with gloves when working around mushrooms. You don't want any dead skin cells flying around with your fecal flakes!

These 58qt Sterilite containers have many uses. Most importantly, they are great to use as an unmodified (no holes cut in it) still air box, which you can see in-use in many of my videos! They can also become unmodified monotubs to fruit mushrooms.

Viagrow brand has a great reputation with mushroom growers. They even include the water ratio you need to hydrate one brick of coco coir. Around 1 gallon (4qts) of water for one brick.

I personally use this Eco Earth loose coir. Sometimes I don't always need as much coco coir that a full, hydrated brick provides. You can see me using this loose coir in many of my videos.

This gallon of medium/fine vermiculite can be added to your coco coir blends for extra water retention. It's definitely not needed to grow cubensis mushrooms. You can stick with 100% coco coir with great success. If you want to learn the difference between PERLITE and VERMICULITE, then click/tap here to watch my explanation video!

This is a GREAT PRICE for a 20pk of COMPLETELY CLEAR 6qt shoe boxes. Each shoe box is perfect every time for 2 bags of colonized 90 Second Rice plus 1qt of substrate.

Basic lighting is just fine for mushrooms. These LED lights have a built-in timer! Every living thing lives on a light cycle, but mushrooms don't exactly need light to fully survive. Even ambient light is fine.

Using fine misters like these (also known as "Flairosol") are great for misting your various mushroom tubs.

At the time of this posting, this dehydrator actually has a $10-off coupon you can apply via Amazon. This is similar to the food dehydrator that I have, and it's great for mushrooms and tons of other snacks! An air fryer also works if you have one.

This mushroom liquid culture premix is great to get started with making your own liquid culture. Once you gain experience, you can start playing with your own recipes! To learn the difference between Liquid Culture & Spore Solution, visit 90SecondMycology.com/flowcharts.

This is a great agar variety pack to get you started with different agar recipes. This kit offers PDA (Potato Dextrose Agar), MEA (Malt Extract Agar) , & PDA with Activated Charcoal! All of these agar recipes are great for mushroom cultivation, and it's a matter of preference on which recipe performs the best for your specific needs. Experiment!

This 6pk of sterile water will allow you to make your own spore syringes without needing a pressure sterilizer to sterilize your own water. It also has many other uses if you're creative enough!

These syringes and needles are the perfect gauge for spores & more! Create your own spore syringes, liquid culture syringes, and anything else. To learn the difference between Liquid Culture & Spore Solution, visit 90SecondMycology.com/flowcharts.

Covering your mouth while working around mushrooms is a great habit to form, and the same goes for wearing gloves. The number one source of contamination with mushrooms is from the human body. Plus, these are the same masks I wear during inoculation as well as on my live streams!
