Furthermore, how do you make a spore syringe from a spore print?
With your tweezers, take the spore print from its storage and hold it over the opening of the beaker. With the scalpel in hand, carefully scrape some of the spores into the water. You should fill you syringes instantly - place the tip of your first syringe in the water and fill it up.
Also Know, is it illegal to buy spore syringes? A spore syringe is a mixture of sterile water and mushroom spores contained inside a syringe. The only spore products you need to be aware of are the psilocybe cubensis products. This mushroom species is illegal to cultivate in the USA and Canada but it is not illegal to possess or ship them.
In this manner, how long do spores last in a syringe?
Spore syringes do not last as long because eventually the water develops bacteria. A general guideline is 8 to 12 months. Although we have heard many reports of 2 to 5 years. If your spore prints do not germinate within the usual time frame then rehydrate them in sterile water for 24 hours.
What is a mushroom spore syringe?
