The 500ml live culture and starter nutrient pack along with the comprehensive instruction manual contain the essential components you need to get your spirulina micro-farm established. With the live starter culture and a few easy to obtain items, described in the growing manual (included), you will soon be well on your way to producing your very own fresh raw spirulina at home.
When you purchase the 500 ml litre starter culture you are establishing your Spirulina micro-farm with billions and billions more cells, which is a robust way to start because the culture is less vulnerable to begin with. What is more you will be able to harvest your produce weeks sooner than if you start with a smaller volume.
The growing manual describes, in easy to follow detail, what you need to do to grow up and look after your culture, so you can regularly harvest enough spirulina to supplement your diet with the most nutritious food on planet.
Growing Spirulina is Safe
Growing spirulina is completely safe because it grows at such high pH values (+10) and so there are very few harmful microorganisms that can infect your culture. Spirulina is grown all over the world and is recommended by development agencies, including the FAO, to be grown in poor rural areas of the world where malnutrition is a big issue.
Before we ship the order we check the culture under the microscope to ensure you are getting a pure and uncontaminated product.
Buying in Australia is better if you live in Australia
Spirulina gets its energy from the sun. Lack of sun due to long transit times associated with sourcing the culture from overseas can in some cases lead to culture death (it has happened to me). That’s why it’s better to source your live starter culture from the country you live in.
What’s more, in most countries it is illegal to import biological material without declaring it to customs. If customs do check your package and find the live culture, they will definitely confiscate it. You can get cultures through, but you do risk losing them.
