    bought this to see what I would get since most spirulina cultures are over $60.00.
    there was a small vial of spirulina and enough mix for 500ml of solution. I followed the directions and kept diluting the algae with more mix as it grew. After a few weeks, and buying more nutrient mix I have about a gallon of dense spirulina solution. I will be putting it in a 10 gallon tank soon and in a few more weeks I will start harvesting.
    It arrived when expected and grew great in a south window.

    We got this kit for a science fair experiment for my son who is in 7th grade. He was testing how much oxygen is produced in different conditions by the cyanobacteria and found this kit to be good. We had trouble at first, but we called customer service and they were extremely helpful and gave us great tips for our experiment. Overall, we found it to be very good, and the instructions were easy to understand and gave background information which helped a lot.
