A sporeprint is an imprint of mushroom spores(say seeds) that are collected when the mushroom hat is ready to drop. Hygiene is of paramount importance if you are going to grow psilocybe mushroom spores. The Mexican, mushroom spore prints are extensively checked for viability. After all, you want to work with fertile pathways.
How to make a mushroom spore syringe with a Sporeprint
Go clean and sterilize everything you use! Carefully open the spore print and use a sterile knife to scrape some of the spores into a sterile shot glass. A knife tip is sufficient for a 10cc syringe. Do not use too much sterile water, a few drops is enough. Use the needle of the syringe to mix the spores with a few drops of sterile water. If you look closely, you can see that the tracks are falling apart. Continue until the mushroom spores are pretty much dissolved in the water. Suck the water with the spores into the needle and squeeze it again. Repeat this process a few times. As a result, the spores will mix well in the water. Suck this one more time and the spore syringe is now finished and ready to use.
Substrate for the Mexican Spores
There are several ways to compose a substrate. These spores do well on a substrate of brown rice flour, PF Tek, rye and on enriched soil and manure.
Saving your Sporeprint
Spore-prints of mushrooms are made on sterile film. You can store these just fine in sterile plastic bag with closure.
