How To Use The Golden Teacher Spore Syringe
A Luer lock cap at the end of the syringe holds the Golden Teacher spore solution in place. With this attached cap, the Golden Teacher Spore Syringe is easier to transport and store.
Make sure you work in the most hygienic way possible. Wear a sterile mask and gloves and/or disinfect your hands. Hold the Golden Teacher spore syringe in front of you with the Luer lock cap pointing upward. Remove the Luer lock stop by screwing it in counterclockwise. Take the needle out of the sterile package and screw it onto the Golden Teacher spore syringe. Shake the spore syringe vigorously for ten seconds before removing the protective cap from the needle.
To continue from here, there are several methods to choose from:
Drop the spore solution onto the substrate
After you have prepared your substrate or cakes, you can pour the Golden Teacher spore solution directly from the syringe onto these. Press the plunger slowly so that drops of the spore solution come out of the needle. Every drop that comes into touch with the substrate is a potential mycelial growth site, therefore distributing these droplets across the substrate to uniformly populate it with mycelium.
How many cakes can a spore syringe make?
A 20 cc spore syringe can colonize 6 liters / 13 quarts of the substrate with ease.
Injection through injection ports
This is nearly comparable to splattering the spore solution on the substrate. Pull back on the port protective cover to open the injection port. Sterilize the injection port entry using an alcohol solution. With the needle, pierce the hole. Drop the spore solution evenly into the spawning bag or grow the box’s substrate. Remove the syringe after injecting the Golden Teacher spore solution and cover the injection port with the protective port cap.
Study the spores and investigate under a microscope
Viewed from a scientific point of view; all Psilocybe cubensis are the same. But they differ slightly in appearance and fruiting speed. There are several distinct phenotypes of Psilocybe cubensis. These several cubensis are not regarded subspecies, but rather strains. The Golden Teacher mushrooms is a Psilocybe cubensis strain.
The distinctions in phenotype are visible with the naked eye, but the actual beauty is shown under the microscope. The wonderful world of spores. Many of our clients are scientists or enthusiasts who research these differences in a home laboratory. After you have prepared your microscope slide, drop some of the Golden Teacher spore solutions on it. Cover the sample with a microscope coverslip. A magnification of 1000x or higher is recommended for Psilocybe cubensis and Panaeolus cyanescens spore investigation.
How to store a spore syringe
The Golden Teacher spore syringe should be stored refrigerated at 2 ° C – 8 ° C or 35 ° F – 46 ° F. The spore syringe’s shelf life is at least 12 months after it leaves our warehouse. if you want to get more information, please visit the website https://mungus.com/
