Easy to follow instructions and online support

Growing Spirulina is easy peasy.
Remember growing your own live spirulina is super easy and burns very little time (a few minutes a day, if that). Once established under the right conditions your spirulina basically look after themselves.
When you purchase your live spirulina from us you will also have ongoing e-mail support and access to our private Facebook group, where you will find lots of additional information and support from a growing community of urban spirulina farmers.
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 live culture from overseas can in some cases lead to culture death (it has happened to me). That is why it is better to source your live starter culture from the country you live in.
What is 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.
Did we mention that this is the only Spirulina kit shipping with a live culture offered in the Australian marketplace.
