About Us


True Blue Genetics produces sterile laboratory specimens for fungal genetics research. With a library of over 200 distinct mushroom-producing varieties, we have carefully curated a robust selection of the most vigourous, rare, exotic and high-performing strains to offer to our beloved mycological community.

For several years as a wholesale producer of liquid culture for commercial farms and other leading genetics brands, we have refined our unique liquid fermentation process and produced thousands of batches with unparalleled success. We constantly prepare fresh culture in small quantities and redundantly test every batch to verify its purity and vitality.

Our liquid culture is prepared from thoroughly isolated tissue clones selected with utmost discretion, and great care is taken to preserve each specimen in its most youthful, vigorous state. Our cultures have remarkable long-term stability and are prepared in conformity to critical standards for DNA analysis and inclusion in fungaria for future scientific study and biodiversity preservation.

Using redundant quantitative analytical methods, our cultures are independently laboratory verified to be free of any alkaloids or scheduled compounds and are sold strictly for research purposes. True Blue Genetics does not condone the misuse of its products, and it is the sole responsibility of the purchasers to use them in accordance with the laws of their respective jurisdictions.

True Blue is synonymous with integrity, and we are deeply committed to our community. We honor this commitment with exceptional customer service, accessible pricing, a comprehensive product guarantee, a free and reduced-cost scholarship and a generous, inclusive referral rewards program.

True Blue Crew


Community is everything to us here at True Blue, and we couldn't do what we do without you. We know our business relies wholly on the good word of our friends. We want to give back, so we invite you to join the Crew.

Here's how it works: each community partner receives a unique discount code. Share this code with your friends and followers, and whenever someone uses it to make a purchase you get a commission. They save a buck, you make a buck, and we make a friend. Everybody wins.

We love what we do, and we take great pride and care in our work. But we are mycologists, and our passion is in the lab. When it comes to marketing, we start to turn blue. We hope that you will see the value in our efforts and help us spread the word, so we can continue doing what we do best, and keep the culture flowing.

TBG Scholarship Fund


Anyone who works with fungi knows something about ascending from the depths. We've been there, and we believe that those with humble means should have equal access to exceptional genetics. Mycology is a field of great promise, and this world can always use a little more hope. If you are here for the work, with a full heart and empty pockets, we invite you to apply for a scholarship.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, evaluated for both merit and need, and awards are granted in the order of receipt as funds become available. (There is sometimes a waitlist.)

On the other hand, if you find yourself in a position of abundance, we encourage you to consider making a small donation to the fund with your purchase. Funds raised are used strictly to help offset the material cost of providing free and reduced-cost liquid culture to our many worthy applicants.

Wholesale Liquid Culture


Wholesale and bulk liquid culture are the backbone of our business. With our meticulously curated library, characteristically dense inoculum, state-of-the-art bulk packaging techniques, exceptional track record for sterility and the most competitive prices in the industry, we are radically reshaping the whole world of gourmet mushroom cultivation.

Commercial gourmet mushroom producers face a litany of complex challenges with high stakes, as any number of mistakes can lead to significant downtime and losses. Our grateful clients have found that making the switch to our revolutionary high-volume liquid inoculation system cuts material and labor costs by more than 85%, reduces contamination rates below 1% and cuts production time in half compared with traditional spawning techniques.

Whether you are a commerical gourmet mushroom producer or a retail shop wanting to offer a diverse selection of fungal genetics to your customers, True Blue Genetics is the partner you've been looking for. Reach out to us to inquire about our bulk packaging, wholesale rates and current lead time estimates.

Info & Terms


We are committed to providing exceptional customer service.

How It Works

For both privacy and security, we do not process credit cards on this website. Instead, after you place an order, you will receive an email with a link to pay using a secure, trusted third party (or instructions if paying with cash). Unpaid orders will be cancelled after 7 days (30 days for cash orders).

We do our best to process invoices and ship orders within 1-3 business days.

Cancellation Policy

Orders may be cancelled for a full refund at any time until they have been shipped. Once an order is shipped it will not be refunded.

Return Policy

Due to the perishable nature of live biological specimens, we do not accept returns. In the rare case that you should find, with reasonable assurance, that our products were compromised in any way upon arrival, we will promptly replace them at no cost to you. We do not offer refunds.

Lost or Damaged Packages

When an order is shipped, we provide tracking information. If a package is lost or damaged in transit, we will work with the postal carrier to recover the cost and send a free replacement. However, we are not responsible for orders which are lost or misplaced after they have been delivered by the carrier.

Indemnity

We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason, including but not limited to any indication of intent to violate law.

We're a little short-handed this week. There's a team of highly trained monkeys in the office. We'll do our best to respond quickly to emails and get orders out on time, but please bear with us if we fall behind.

We appreciate you!
