Using mushroom spore syringes is perhaps the most common way to cultivate mushrooms among domestic circumstances, in an amateur research laboratory or in the basement to have all those delicious and delightful mushrooms for your table or to have material for your research. Here is how mushroom syringes work:
- What are, in fact, mushroom syringes – mushroom syringes are small containers that are filled with sterilized water and the spores of the mushroom variety of choice. Syringe kits usually include a sterile needle as well as some alcohol solution for further sterilization and handling. You can find quality controlled psilocybin spores for sale at industry leader Shaman Mushroom Spores.
- Other things that you need for your project – you will either need a microscope to study the shape and the structure of the spores in your syringe or a substrate to inoculate with spores and to start your own culture. Inoculation in this sense means that you will have to install the needle on your syringe and to introduce that needle into the substrate while pushing the end of the syringe. The first little mushrooms will appear very soon on the surface of your substrate. You can also choose to use agar for germination, in which case you will be placing one or two drops off the solution in your syringe onto the agar disk.
