Expertly prepared and the results I get from this recipe are in a word Phenomenal.
Give them a try especially if you’re spawning to Milo Sorghum. No nutrient shock and excellent colonization.
I will buy again and again!

Thank you sir! Hope things are going well for you!


Perfect as always 👌

Thank you! Appreciate the support!


This formula is amazing.
The complexity of the starch and sugars makes for some really fast growth in my lab.
Pair it with a Milo sorghum bag and you’re on your way!!!

Thank you!
