Sterilize mushroom growth media safely with diluted drug store grade (3%) H2O2 using Indigo® 0-100ppm test strips. Properly diluted hydrogen peroxide has antimicrobial properties that can ensure harmful spore growth is suppressed. Use Indigo® 100ppm hydrogen peroxide test strips whether you are a beginner growing gourmet mushrooms at home or for commercial cultivation of edible mushrooms in general.
An important step in your mushroom spawn culture procedure is to ensure your bulk substrate is free of microbial contamination. Eliminating competitor spores & competing bacteria is needed to support mushroom mycelial growth. Higher concentrations of peroxide in the range of 0.15% may promote mushroom mycelial growth. Our 0-10000 hydrogen peroxide test strips may be useful for this. Others using bulk pellet fuel substrates may need to go down to 0.03% (300ppm) & may find the 0-400ppm hydrogen peroxide test strips of benefit.
In addition, we sell small test tubes & graduated cylinders you can use in conjuction with our hydrogen peroxide dilution calculator.
Petri dishes can hold your agar culture growing medium for mold spore germination; they're sterile & inexpensive. Your interest in mushrooms, besides beyond growing for fun or profit, might be aided by a geology hand lens. Read our two blogs on magnifiers & mushrooms.

We started using H2O2 in our swimming pool These test strips help us to keep the levels accurate. Easy to use and easy to read. Very happy with the product and with the results in our pool!
Perfect to balance H2O2 in hot tub.
Great service; price and product. Canada Post dropped the ball. Paid extra for express post and package sat in Canada Post for 3 days then delivered on day 4.
Thanks for the feedback. Many of our Canadian customers have had similar problems. This prompted us to write: Canada Post is in the way of small business competing against Amazon.
Great friendly service , always helpful and h202 strips high quality

Good to know. Some of the hot tub vendors who have contacted us over the years recommend the 400ppm hydrogen peroxide strips. Both are effective but outdoor hot tubs may be more susceptible to windblown algae as well as H2O2 breakdown due to sunlight.
