Some facts and history of medicinal mushrooms.

There is many amazing facts and interesting medicinal uses the average person does not know about mushrooms. It is important for us to open our minds and become knowledgable of the natural resources our planet provides, instead of looking to science and chemicals for every medical solution we should look back into the earth and consider the viable sources of medicine that are right under our feet.

Printing101 - All about mushroom spore prints

Spore printing is a simple but important process for storing and collecting of mushroom species. Basically you prepare some kind of clean material to store the print on (fresh typing paper, index cards, wax paper, tin foil, glass slides, ect... ), then cut a mature mushroom cap off at the stem, as near the mushroom gills as possible. Only use a clean scalpel or knife to prevent any contamination.

All about spore syringes

Generally a spore syringe is used to drop spores and water mixture onto slides for microscopy research or to inoculate sterile substrates with a specific strain of mushroom spores. There is a variety of methods for doin this and you can learn more on websites like www.shroomtalk.com

Spore syringes must be sterile when used for inoculation of substrates. In most cases you can purchase sterile, viable syringes from vendors online such as www.spores101.com or you can make them yourself if you have some basic equipment and mushroom spores isolated in a sterile container. Its better to purchase spore syringes online from a vendor because you can be assured of the quality and sterility, as well as use a guarantee if provided. Sterile means the spore syringe contains only water and mushrooms spores and has been prepared in a sterile environment.

A dark spore syringe is not always a QUALITY spore syringe

Over the years there has been much hype about whether or not a dark or cloudy spore syringe is more effective than a spore syringe that appears to be more clear.
 
It would seem that from an initial visual perspective a darker or inky spore syringe would be a better product to experiment with. The darker the mixture inside the syringe should be equal to the amount of spores inside and more spores means a better chance at microscopy.  Unfortunately this perspective is not 100% accurate. From most of the experiments we have been apart of a clear spore syringe can be just as effective, and even more reliable than a cloudy or dark spore mixture. The fact is that mushroom spores are microscopic and not visible to the human eye unless they are in large numbers or clumps.
