Mushroom spores represent the tiny, microscopic cells from which mushrooms grow. And researchers all over the world enjoy studying mushroom spores under a microscope. These spores can be bought either under the form of mushroom spore syringes, or under that of spore prints. And it would be interesting to make a comparison between these two and see which one is best.
First of all, a spore syringe is made of spores which suspended in a water solution, in a sterile syringe, whereas spore prints are obtained in a special way. Thus, the mushroom cap is removed and placed on a surface such as paper, foil, plastic or tin. The cap releases spores on the surface, and thus spore prints are produced.
Spore syringes have the advantage of being very easy to use, which makes them the perfect choice for beginners. Prints can be used in order to make spore syringes or to be studied with a microscope. Experimenting can help you find out which one of these two options suits you best. So it really comes down to one’s personal preferences.
In case you want to make spore syringes out of spore prints, you need to provide a very clean environment, and thus reduce the risk of contamination. Or you can order ready-made spore syringe products online from Shaman Mushroom Spores.
