Obtaining spore print/syringe
    #3745129 - 02/07/05 01:49 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

Hi all, I'm very new to this site and would like to get into cultivation. The guides all seem fairly straight forward, but I have a question to which I have not found an answer. As (like i said) I'm new to this, I do not have a source for spores. Additionally, I live in the US, so the delivery services aren't an option (please correct me if I am wrong here). What I would like to know is whether or not dried caps contain usable spores. My gut tells me no, but I thought I'd ask before I go searching for an alternate means of getting ahold of them. If dried caps can be used as a source for spores, is the method for obtaining them fairly similar? If not, can anyone offer any advice on how they would go about getting their hands on some?
Thanks so much for any help that's given.
Aaron :-)

When a man thinks, there is a spot of fire alive in his mind---and it is proper that he should have the burning point of a cigarette as his one expression."

you can legally obtain spores within the US, but not in every state...i'd assume from your post that you live in a state that they can't deliver to, but maybe not...

Yes, dried caps do contain viable spores.

Transfer dried gill fragments onto agar. You'll probably get some contamination but just keep on transfering the healthy mycelium to fresh plates to obtain a pure culture.
