Vial vs syringes
Spore vials are superior to spore syringes in most areas. Get the best results by growing Pollock P. tampanensis magic mushrooms with this bottle of quality spores. 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 containing 10 ml of Pollock P. tampanensis tampanensis spore solution
- 1 sterile syringe of 10 ml
- 2x Alco preparations
Instructions for using a Pollock P. tampanensis 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 Pollock P. tampanensis spore vial vigorously to evenly distribute the spores throughout the vial. 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 Pollock P. tampanensis 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 pretty much the same as pouring the spore solution onto the substrate. To open the injection port, pull the port protection cap back. To disinfect the injection port entrance, use alco-prep. With the needle, pierce the hole. Now spread the spore solution evenly around the substrate inside the spawn bag or grow box. After injecting the Pollock P. tampanensis spore solution, remove the syringe and insert the port protection cap into the injection port.
Liquid culture for faster colonization and stronger mycelium
When Pollock P. tampanensis spore solution is injected into a “nutrient bath” such as liquid culture medium, the spores transform into mycelium inside this liquid suspension. This is called liquid culture, abbreviated LC. It is possible to inoculate substrates and cakes using liquid growing medium. Liquid culture media have a higher success rate and will be much more reliable than spore germination without LC. Using LC will increase the probability of finding mushrooms.
Note: Liquid culture medium will not work well with our spore syringes.
Study the spores and do research using a 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 Pollock P. tampanensis spore solution to it. Cover the specimen with a covering glass for a microscope. For studies of Psilocybe tampanensis and Panaeolus cyanescens spores, a magnification of 1000x or more is optimal.
The syringe and its reuse
After using the syringe to inoculate the substrate, cake, or CL with Pollock P. tampanensis, the empty syringe can be reused after disinfection of the needle. This can be accomplished using a lighter or an alcohol burner. Burn the needle by holding it in the flame long enough for it to emit an orange light. Allow it to cool before reinserting the needle. Instead of reusing a needle, you can obtain a sterile one separately.
Store the bottle of Pollock P. tampanensis 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. Pollock P. tampanensis spore vials can be stored this way for 2 years after leaving our warehouse.
