my:celium / Fungus Cultivation Kit


Fungi play an important role in many aspects of human life. They brought us antibiotics and therefore saved millions of lives.
They are used in cancer treatment and besides the positive impact on our immune system they can even cure mental illnesses like anxiety and depression!

Growing and reproducing mushrooms is nearly impossible in a home environment because it requires a lot of experience and a laboratory-like work space to succeed.

My:celium is an all-in-one solution for friends of fungi of all kind of knowledge levels.
The my:celium system provides you with the environment and tools that are needed to cultivate fungi.
