We provide laboratory grade mushroom spores, in surgically sterile 10cc syringes. You will be hard pressed to find a better product in the current online marketplace. Our syringes are the MOST VIABLE on the market.
Do you offer advice on growing or grow kits?
Unfortunately we cannot give growing advice or provide grow kits, any such questions might be better suited for people who specialize in those sorts of things. We have heard that the seasoned professionals at Midwest Grow Kits have practically re-defined “at home” Mycology when it extends past standard research.
Are these “prints”?
No. These are surgically sterile 10cc syringes containing actual mushroom spores.
How much specimen do I need for research?
Generally researchers will choose to use 1cc of specimen per research media (slide), which allows for 10 slides per research session. IF you have 10 + slides you would need 2 syringes.
