List of Spirulina growth mediums

There are a number of Spirulina growth mediums that have been developed today. Here is a compiled list:

– Zarrouk’s medium

– …to be continued

Our complete Spirulina growth medium ready to mix with water (tap water works very well as long as it doesn’t contain chlorine). It is based on the Zarrouk medium but has been adapted more to the proportions of nutrient that Spirulina actually need. E.g. extra nitrogen (and only nitrate) to give higher yields per liter. For a 10 liter culture where you harvest regularly (10% daily) this medium will cover you for at least 2 months. Mix it with water, stir for circa 20 minutes and add to your culture. Alternatively you can add it direct to the culture with the water. You can vary the concentration from 0.5x to 3x and still grow well.  

How to find a Spirulina culture

Live Spirulina cultures for sale from farmers

The second option is to go to a Spirulina grower near you. It is possible that they can sell you their Spirulina culture and you can start growing your own Spirulina from that one. Just be sure to get the specific nutrients they use too. This is good since the farmer might use a specific nutrient setup that the culture is more adapted too and if not followed will result in low growth in the start. 

The large and best option to get a steady Spirulina culture going with 10x concentrated 500 ml Spirulina start culture and a complete Spirulina manual. 

Great starter of your own culture with 500 ml 10x concentrated Spirulina culture, full instructions manual and 10 L dry complete growth medium ready to mix with water and use.
