Lambert's Pure Culture

Mushroom Spawn

Produced by new grafting process from selected and prolific specimens, thoroughly acclimatized, has never failed to run.

This spawn is made from cultures taken by the selective method recently discovered by Dr. Duggar, from choice specimens of the best varieties of mushrooms known to be thoroughly acclimatized, and selected with special reference to their vigor, size, flavor and prolificness. The elements of uncertainty surrounding the old chance method of producing spawn are therefore eliminated, and a uniform crop of the best marketable variety, to the exclusion of all other and inferior fungi, is thus assured.

This spawn is admirably adapted to grow in the dark waste space of greenhouses, under the benches, thus giving florists an additional and material source of revenue.

For sale by all leading Seedsmen. Practical instructions on "Mushroom Culture" mailed free on application.

American Spawn Company, St. Paul, Minn.
