Its growing mycelium cultures in peitri dishes using agar, which is a type of liquid substrate. You end up with lesser mycelium than you would with jars, but you don't have to use any verm or anything like that. This is just the basic idea. Read up on it for more info.
Agar can be researched further in the FAQ, but the basic gist of it is.. that you will use a nutritious substrate, that the mycellium cannot digest, in order to keep it in culture form, but it sucks the nutrients. So you can use agar to grow out cloned fruits, germinate spores and clean them up (if the print is wild), isolate a quick growing strain, or a fruiting strain. Etc.. there are a lot of advantages to this, but it's absolutely an extra step.
