Vial vs syringes
Spore vials are superior to spore syringes in most areas. Get the best results when growing B+ magic mushrooms with this quality spore vial. Using spore vials will result in a higher success rate in the colonization and fruiting processes.
Reasons to use the bottle:
- Longer shelf life than most spore syringes (2 years vs. 6 months)
- It is easier to extract all the spores from the container. Plastic syringes are often charged with static electricity, causing spores to stick to them. Glass vials are never charged, so 100% of the spores will come out.
- Works great with liquid culture medium . Syringes may be prepared with a different solution, rendering any liquid culture medium unusable.
- The spore vial solution contains over 1,000 parts of growth per milliliter, compared to 500 g/ml or even less in most syringes.
- Professional appearance
- Takes up less space
- Easier to transport
- 1 glass vial with 10 ml of B+ cubensis spore solution
- 1 sterile syringe of 10 ml
- 2x Alco preparations
Instructions for using a B+ spore vial
The bottle caps are made of a circular rubber membrane. The rubber membrane, or septa, can be penetrated by a syringe needle, but it prevents airflow, microorganisms, or anything else from passing through on its own.
Shake the B+ spore bottle vigorously to properly distribute the spores in the bottle. Remove the protective cap from the top of the bottle and use an alcohol preparation to disinfect the septa. Unpack the sterile syringe and remove the protective needle cap. Insert the syringe needle through the septum.
The tip of the needle should be immersed in the spore solution. Slowly retract the syringe plunger to fill the syringe with spore solution. It only takes 3 milliliters of spore solution to colonize 1 liter or 1.05 liters of substrate. After filling the syringe with the desired amount of spore solution, carefully remove the needle from the vial.
To get from here to the inoculation process, you have several methods to choose from:
Deposit the spore solution on the substrate
After preparing your own substrate or cakes, you can drop the B+ spore solution directly from the syringe onto it. Slowly press the plunger so that droplets of spore solution come out of the needle. Each drop that will be in contact with the substrate is a potential growth point for the mycelium. Spread these droplets on the substrate evenly to colonize the substrate with mycelium.
Injection through the injection ports
This is almost identical to dropping the spore solution onto the substrate. Open the injection port by pulling on the port protection cap. Use alcohol preparation to sterilize the entrance to the injection port. Pierce the opening with the needle. Now, drop the spore solution evenly onto the substrate inside the spawn bag or grow box. After the B+ spore solution is injected, remove the syringe and close the injection port with the port protection cap.
Liquid culture for faster colonization and stronger mycelium
When injecting the B+ spore solution into a “nutrient bath,” such as liquid culture medium, the spores form into mycelium inside this liquid suspension. This is called liquid culture, or LC for short. The liquid culture medium itself can be used to inoculate the substrate and cakes. Liquid culture growing medium has a higher success rate and will be much more reliable than trying to germinate the spores without using LC. In short, using LC will increase the chance of getting mushrooms.
Note: Liquid culture medium will not work well with our spore syringes.
Study the spores and do research using a microscope
From a scientific point of view, all Psilocybe cubensis are the same. However, their appearance and fruiting rate (phenotype) vary somewhat. There are different distinct phenotypes of Psilocybe cubensis. These several cubensis are not subspecies but rather distinct strains. B+ is a strain of Psilocybe cubensis.
Phenotypic distinctions are visible to the human eye, but true beauty lies under the microscope. The wonderful world of spores Many of our clients are scientists doing research in makeshift laboratories on these discrepancies. After preparing your microscope slide, apply a small amount of B+ Spore Solution to it. Cover the specimen with a covering glass for a microscope. 1000x or more is the optimal magnification for studying Psilocybe cubensis and Panaeolus cyanescens spores.
The syringe and its reuse
After using the syringe to inoculate the substrate, cake, or LC with B+, you can reuse the empty syringe after sterilizing the needle. This can be done with an alcohol burner or a lighter. Burn the needle by keeping it in the flame long enough to make it glow orange. Let it cool before inserting the needle again. Instead of reusing one, you can also order a sterile needle separately.
Store the B+ bottle in the refrigerator between 2°C and 8°C, or 35°F and 46°F. Leave the “protective septa cap” in place when storing the vial. After removing this protective cap, always sterilize the septa with alco-prep before inserting the syringe. B+ spore vials can be stored this way for 2 years after leaving our warehouse.
