Algae Research Supply: Spirulina Farming Kit

Howdy Spirulina Farmers! Our research staff has been culturing algae since January of 2000, supported spirulina farmers on six of our seven continents on Earth, and had our cultures sent to space… three times (would have been four, except for a small rocket explosion.) We have helped tens of thousands of students, hundreds of schools and universities (including Harvard, Yale, Oxford, Texas A&M, UCSD, and more). Growing algae is a great platform for experimentation and harvesting biomass is super rewarding (we dare you not to say “Green Gold!” when you are done). To the farming kit-----> This kit has three parts: BIOLOGICAL (algae culture), CHEMICAL (nutrients), PHYSICAL (salts and water mixing). It includes easy to set up instructions and a booklet on algae culture. Better yet, we have a quick video series to answer questions (AlgaeResearchSupply.com). Our 5-gallon kit is the basis for the farming kit. Each 5-gallon salt and nutrient packets can yield around 20-40g of dry weight or around 500g wet weight (Approx. 1 lb of wet weight). Algae Research and Supply’s mission is to educate on aquatic environments. We want to help you grow algae! Supplies you will need: 10-gallon aquarium, small air pump, and a light source.
