Grow-organic-spirulina.com is primarily intended to assist individuals seeking to grow their own spirulina at home. Over the past six years, we have been working on expanding our product range as well as improving our eBooks and calculators and creating new content for our blog and glossary, all with the aim to increase awareness to Spirulina and help new growers find the resources they need to get started.
Our current goal is to create a network of spirulina growers who can supply each other with live spirulina cultures locally.
Why should I offer my live spirulina culture to other growers?
Anyone who ever tried growing their own spirulina knows the frustration when you make a single mistake that kills your entire batch. If you don’t have a fresh batch sitting in hibernation somewhere, you lose your entire operation. While beginners and amateurs might give up at that stage, this scenario can be devastating for a commercial grower.
Acquiring a new live spirulina culture can be challenging. Importing it from other countries and delivering it through the post often results in customs delays that can damage the batch. In many countries, live bacteria is not allowed at all and gets shipped back to the sender. Therefore, obtaining it from a local source is ideal.
Being able to acquire a new batch of live spirulina when needed is not just beneficial for beginners, but also for advanced growers who want to experiment with different strains and have a backup culture available locally whenever they need it.
Furthermore, as spirulina is still very much a niche market, it would be wise of commercial growers to collaborate and help each other. And since to a large extent, spirulina marketing is about raising awareness, one producer’s success can benefit the entire market.
If you grow your own spirulina and would like to offer live culture to other growers in your area, we encourage you to apply by filling out this form.
