    #3526924 - 12/21/04 09:46 AM (12 years, 10 months ago)

Do you think these spores are still viable?

They should be viable, I've kept syringes at room temp in unsterile conditions for months with no problem.

A search would give you the best answer you could hope for.
You would read a ton of scenarios.

is it possible to make more spores from a new spore syringe by just adding some spore solution to sterile water? or do you have to make a spore print from fresh mushrooms? could mushroom that's been harvested for a couple months ago be used to make a print?

dry shrooms cant be used to make a print or s syringe. and if you want to make one spore syringe in to two i would sugest you get the dark days syringes as those could possibly make four syringes if not more i never seen them so i dont know how dark they are i belive all you need to knock some thing up is two spores i belive there is a male and female spore if you want to put it in laymans terms but i am not positive

Onetime is right...However, the posibility of two single spores in a jar of grain finding each other and germinating are pretty low...thats why your spore solutions contain thousands upon thousands of invisible spores...it's like a big orgy.

Spores have four combinations of sexes. Not all intersecting threads are able to mate. Not all matings will produce fertile mycelia.

Spores form as swellings on one or more subtending hypha in the soil or in roots. These structures contain lipids, cytoplasm and many nuclei. Spores usually develop thick walls with more than one layer and can function as propagules. Spores may be aggregated into groups called sporocarps. Sporocarps may contain specialized hyphae and can be encased in an outer layer (peridium). Spores apparently form when nutrients are remobilised from roots where associations are senescing. They function as storage structures, resting stages and propagules. Spores may form specialized germination structures, or hyphae may emerge through the subtending hyphae or grow directly through the wall.

A single spore contains a half set of chromosomes (known as haploid), much like any reproductive cell (ova or sperm). The spore has a protein sheath (the colored part that we can see) which encases the cell. When optimal conditions surround the spore, it will germinate. This is when it pushes its cellular mass through the protein sheath (at the germ pore) by expansion from re-absorbed water. This mass is a fine filament called the monokaryote (aka: the primary mycelium). It still has a half set of chromosomes. This monokaryote grows (still a single cell with a single nucleus) until it finds a compatible monokaryote to mate with. It does this by touching and dissolving its cell wall while the mate does the same. They effectively just merge to become one cell with 2 nuclei.

No but it is a nice little section from the FAQ's.

There really is an incredible amount of information there. I highly suggest spending some of your forum time there going through every topic and reading every single FAQ. You'll start to understand after a while and when you go back and read any of them again...

I ordered mine from SporeBank about two months ago. I would not recommend them though, the syringe I got was pretty weak and I have several jars that are not even 30% colonized yet. I here spores101 is a good supplier.

is the B+ strain a good start for a beginner? how potent are they? i was thinking about trying B+ spore syringe but don't know if it would be worth the wait as a hallucinogenic.

What results have people have from ordering spores? What company is the best. Which company has the most highly concentrated spore syringes? I am concerned and don't want to get screwed.
