What do you mean a million types of agar? If you want strait agar for making your own mix, then look for agar agar powder or flakes. Nutritional stores usually carry it as well, so you may be able to buy it locally. In my experience food grade agar performs just as well as media grade. It will solidify, and you can adjust concentrations as necessary to gain the hardness you prefer...

If you want a premix, then get PDA, MEA, MYA, or another mix designed for the growth of mushrooms. You can find recipes to them in the FAQ if you need them...

To give is to live...
