Vial vs. Syringes
Spore vials are superior to the spore syringes in most fields. Get the best results when cultivating B+ magic mushrooms with this quality spore vial. Using spore vials will result in a higher success rate in the colonization and fruiting process.
Reasons to go Vial:
- Longer shelf life than most spore syringes (2 years vs 6 months)
- It’s easier to get ALL spores out of the container. Plastic syringes are often charged with static electricity making the spores stick to them. Glass vials are never charged, so 100% of the spores will come out.
- Works great with liquid culture growth media. Syringes can be prepared with a different solution, rendering any liquid culture medium unusable.
- Spore vial solution has over a 1000 grow parts per milliliter, versus 500 g.p.p. ml or even less in most syringes.
- Professional look and feel
- Takes up less space
- Easier to transport
- 1x Glass Vial with 10ml B+ cubensis spore solution
- 1x Sterile 10ml Syringe
- 2x Alco Preps
Instructions to use a B+ spore vial
The caps of the vials are comprised of a circular rubber membrane. The rubber membrane, or septa, may be penetrated by a syringe needle, but it prevents airflow, microorganisms, or anything else from passing through on its own.
Shake the bottle of B+ spores forcefully to properly distribute the spores throughout the vial. Remove the protective stopper cap from the top of the vial and use an alco prep to disinfect the septa. Unpack the sterile syringe and remove the needle’s protective cap. Insert the syringe needle through the septum.
The needle’s tip must be immersed in the spore solution. Slowly retract the plunger of the syringe to fill the syringe with spore solution. It takes just 3 millilitres of spore solution to colonise 1 litre / 1.05 quarts of substrate. After filling the syringe with the desired quantity of spore solution, remove the needle from the vial gently.
To proceed from here to the inoculation process, there are several methods to choose from:
Dropping the spore solution onto the substrate
After having prepared your own substrate or cakes, you can drop the B+ spore solution directly from the syringe onto this. Press the plunger slowly so that dropplets of spore solution will come out of the needle. Every dropplet that will be in contact with the substrate is a potential mycelium growth point. Spread out these dropplets over the substrate evenly to colonize the substrate with mycelium.
Injection through injection ports
This is almost identical as dropping the spore solution onto the substrate. Open the injection port by pulling back the port protection cap. Use a alco prep to sterilize the injection port entry. Pierce the opening with the needle. Now drop the spore solution evenly over 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 in a ‘bath of nutrients’, such as the Liquid Culture Growth Medium, the spores will form into mycelium inside this liquid suspension. This is called liquid culture or LC for short. Liquid Culture Growth Medium itself can be used to inoculate substrate and cakes. Liquid culture growth medium has a higher success rate and will be much more reliable than trying to germinate the spores without the use of LC. In short: Using LCs will increase the chance on mushrooms.
Note: The Liquid Culture Growth Medium will not work well with our spore syringes.
Study spores and research using a microscope
From a scientific standpoint, all Psilocybe cubensis are identical. However, they vary somewhat in appearance and fruiting rate (phenotype). There are various distinct phenotypes of Psilocybe cubensis. These several cubensis are not subspecies, but rather distinct strains. The B+ is a Psilocybe cubensis strain.
The phenotypic distinctions are visible to the human eye, but the actual beauty lies beneath the microscope. The marvellous world of spores. Many of our clients are scientists doing research in makeshift laboratories on these discrepancies. After preparing your microscope slide, apply a little amount of the B+ spore solution on it. Cover the specimen with a covering glass for a microscope. 1000x or greater is the optimal magnification for Psilocybe cubensis and Panaeolus cyanescens spore investigation.
The syringe and reusing it
After using the syringe to inoculate the substrate, cake, or LC with B+, you can reuse the empty syringe after you have sterilized the needle. This can be done with a spirit burner or lighter. Burn the needle by keeping it in the flame long enough to make it glow orange. Let it cool down before you insert the needle again. Instead of reusing one, you can also order a sterile needle separately.
Store the B+ vial in the refrigerator between 2°C – 8°C or 35°F – 46°F. Leave the ‘septa protecting stopper cap’ in place when storing the vial. After removing this protective cap, always sterilize the septa with an alco prep before you insert the syringe. B+ spore vials can be stored this way for 2 year after leaving our warehouse.
