Do you offer advice on growing mushrooms or grow kits?2021-05-27T16:37:18-06:00

Unfortunately, we cannot legally provide growing advice or provide grow kits with our Psilocybe cubensis mushroom spore syringes, any such questions might be better suited for people who specialize in those sorts of things. We can, however, provide some assistance via email when you are growing mushrooms with one of our edible liquid culture syringes.

For kits, we recommend the seasoned professionals at Midwest Grow Kits, who have practically re-defined “at home” Mycology when it extends pst standard research. Magic Bag is another growing company whose profits are all donated to non-profit medical research facilities that focus on medicinal mushrooms.

We currently sell Psilocybe Cubensis and Psilocybe Mexicana mushroom spore syringes and edible liquid culture syringes, not mushroom spore prints. However, we are going to soon offer mushroom spore prints for sale. If you would like to purchase spore prints now, please email us.

How much specimen (mushroom spores) do I need to conduct adequate research?2021-04-02T21:02:49-06:00

Generally, microscopy researchers will choose to use 1 – 1.5cc of specimen per research media (slide). Each spore syringe we sell is filled with 10cc-12cc of mushroom spores, which allows for 10 slides per research syringe. Example: IF you have 10+ slides you would need to use 2 mushroom spore syringes.
