Vial vs. Syringes
Spore vials are superior to the spore syringes in most fields. Get the best results when cultivating Golden Teacher 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 Golden Teacher cubensis spore solution
- 1x Sterile 10ml Syringe
- 2x Alco Preps
Instructions to use a Golden Teacher 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 Golden Teacher spore vial forcefully to uniformly distribute the spores inside the bottle. 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 Golden Teacher spore solution directly from the syringe onto this. Slowly depress the plunger so that droplets of spore solution emerge from the needle. Every droplet in touch with the substrate is a potential mycelium growth location. Spread out these dropplets over the substrate evenly to colonize the substrate with mycelium.
Injection through injection ports
This is much the same as dumping the spore solution onto the substrate. To open the injection port, pull the port protective cap backwards. To sanitise the injection port entrance, use an alco prep. With the needle, pierce the hole. Now, evenly distribute the spore solution around the substrate inside the spawn bag or grow box. Remove the syringe after injecting the Golden Teacher spore solution and cover the injection port with the port protection cap.
Liquid culture for faster colonization and stronger mycelium
When injecting the Golden Teacher spore solution into a nutrient-rich bath, such as the Liquid Culture Growth Medium, the spores will transform into mycelium inside this liquid suspension. This is known as liquid culture, abbreviated LC. It is possible to inoculate substrates and cakes using Liquid Culture Growth Medium. Liquid culture growth media has a greater success rate and will be much more dependable than spore germination without LC. Using LCs will enhance the probability of finding 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 Golden Teacher 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, place a little amount of the Golden Teacher 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 Golden Teacher, 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 Golden Teacher 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. Golden Teacher spore vials can be stored this way for 2 year after leaving our warehouse.
