This is a complete media kit, pre measured so you just dump the media, add hot water, stir and go. This kit will make 2 cultures. I use Repashy Supefly for the media and not some generic mix.

***No Flies Included with the kit. I sell flies separately and I also have 6 culture kits with flies included***

  • 2 - bags of media (pre-measured)
  • 2 - 32oz deli cups
  • 2 - 32 oz vented lids (insect proof)
  • 2 - portions of Excelsior (better than coffee filters)
  • 2 - labels for cups so you can keep track of date media was made


  1. Empty one packet of media into a 32oz cup
  2. add 2/3 cup of hot or boiling water into cup and media (2 thirds, not 2 or 3 cups)
  3. Stir until blended. The media should be at the consistency that if you tap it on the counter, the media will flatten out. Add water in small amounts until you reach the consistency desired. Start with less water and then you can add small amounts until the consistency is right. I use my keurig to make the hot water but a half cup in the microwave works too.
  4. Wait until the media is cooled off (about an hour depending on the temp of the water or faster if you put it in the refrigerator).
  5. Add about 50 flies to the cup (easier without the excelsior being in the cup)
  6. Add a portion of excelsior to the cup so that the bottom touches the media
  7. Close with provided lid
  8. Write date on the provided label and stick to the cup
