Amazonian Mushroom Spore
The Amazonian mushroom strain sold by Pacifica Exotica Spora which is why. Amazonian are often referred to as PES Amazonian or PESA. Pacifica Exotica Spora like to name cubensis strains after locations (see PES Hawaiian). Previous to any commercialisation, Amazonian mushrooms have a long history. of being use by indigenous people for spiritual ceremonial purposes throughout the Amazon.
B+ and Amazonian are sometimes referred. as Sporeworks mislabelled Amazonian as B+ for a few years. The strains are different and for a time, there were many reports of B+ with hollow stems.

Stem: 150+ mm in length. Gills: Attachment adnate to adnexed. Grayish coloration in young fruit bodies becoming black in maturity.
How do I store my Amazonian spores?
Spores should be store in a cool, dark and dry environment. You can also store spores in the fridge. ( make sure the syringe is in a clean zip-lock bag such as the packaging the spores sent in).
Can I freeze my Amazon spore syringe?
DO NOT allow spores to freeze. This is not as you would be guessing that it is a bummer to have to wait. for your syringe to defrost before being able to view the spores under the microscope. The issue is that the spore cells will burst as the water expands on freezing.
How long can I keep my Amazonian spore syringe before using?
Spore syringes should be use as soon as possible. If stored the spores will be fine for 6 months. The longer you leave the spore syringe the more chance of contamination. being present when viewing under the microscope.
Can I reuse my Amazonian spore syringe if I have some spore solution left?
Yes! The best thing to do is leave the needle on and flame sterilise before storing with the needle cover put back on. DO NOT remove the needle to put the syringe cap back. on as this will allow an opportunity for contamination to occur. When you come to use your spore syringe again please flame sterilise again before. pushing a small amount of the spore solution out of the needle. You are now able to carry on your microscopic studies.
How do I get my Amazonian spore syringe ready for the microscope?
The aim of the game when viewing spores under the microscope is cleanliness. This means 1) you need to be as clean as possible, 2) your environment needs. to be as clean as possible and 3) your equipment needs to be as clean as possible.
For you to be as clean as possible have a shower, wear clean clothes. and give your hands a good clean with 70% isopropyl aclohol (or where sterile gloves).
To work in a clean environment you will be using a Still Air Box or a flow hood. If you do not have access to these then the next best thing is to work in a clean and draft free room. We are trying to cut as much as possible the chance. of something landing on your slide other than your selected spores.
Give your equipment a good clean with 70% isopropyl alcohol as well. At this point we are ready to re-clean our hands with the alcohol wipe. remove the syringe cap and attach the supplied sterile needle ready for use.
It is currently illegal to cultivate Psilocybe Cubensis spores in the UK and many parts of the world. To learn more about the legality of Psilocybe Cubensis spore. syringes please read Are Spore Syringes Legal?.
How do you collect mushroom spores?
To take the spore print all you need. is the top of the mushroom with the gills exposed on the underside. Place the mushroom with the gills face down onto the paper and pop a glass over the top. Leave this for 24 hours. When you return, remove the glass and lift the mushroom.
How long do spores live?
Spores in the atmosphere may survive for days or weeks or longer (31–34). Careful data tracking the lifetimes of individual spores in the air are. lacking; spores are not easy to observe or manipulate in nature.
How do mushroom spores spread?
Mushroom spore dispersal is usually described as a two-phase process: active ejection. of spores clear of the gill surface by surface tension catapults, followed by a passive phase. in which the spores are carry by whatever winds are present beneath the mushroom cap.Feb 29, 2016
How big is a mushroom spore in microns?
On mushrooms, spores grow along the gills on the underside of the caps. The size varies, but a typical spore is about 10 microns, or 1/2,500th of an inch. in width, and it is attach at the end of a stalk called a sterigma. In a single day, a mushroom releases billions of spores.Jul 27, 2017
Can you touch mushroom spores?
immunocompromised people may want to avoid inhaling too many mushroom spores. but most people can touch, lick, or sniff any mushroom without ill effect.Sep 13, 2021
How long do you leave a mushroom for a spore print?
Cover the cap with a paper cup or glass and leave for 2-24 hours, depending. on the humidity and the freshness of the mushroom. The spores will fall on the paper, foil or glass, making a spore print pattern. If you have only one specimen to study, use a part of the cap.
Are spores easily killed?
Out of these three microbial types, spore forms of bacteria are the most difficult to kill. Spore forms of bacteria are hard to destroy because bacterial endospores. can survive temperatures up to 150°C and as low as near absolute zero.
Do spores need water to survive?
Spore germination requires the presence of water and oxygen and is characterize. by rapid swelling as a result of hydration.
Chemical disinfectants can kill bacteria, but they do not destroy their spores. A process called sterilization destroys spores and bacteria. It done at high temperature and under high pressure. In health care settings, sterilization of instruments. is usually done using a machine called an autoclave.Jan 9, 2021
Where is the best place to plant mushroom spores?
Mushrooms are best grown under-cover, where temperature and moisture can be controlle. A shed, garage, garden cold frame or cellar will work well – anywhere. out of the sun where it’s possible to give mushrooms their best growing temperature. of around 15°C (the temperature shouldn’t go below 10°C or above 20°C).Dec 1, 2021
What kills mushroom spores?
Excessive Salt. Salt exposure neutralizes mushroom spores. It takes two tablespoons of salt dissolved in a gallon of water to deem them unviable. Sodium can also affect the surrounding soil to prevent mycelium re-growth.
How many spores can a mushroom produce in a day?
That process is part of the asexual reproduction of fungi, and the many different shapes. may serve to help different species grow and reproduce in different conditions. A single mushroom can launch 31,000 ballistospores per second. adding up to some 2.7 billionspores per day.Jan 9, 2009
How far can spores travel in the air?
Once spores caught by the wind they can be carrie very long distances. Spores of a wheat rust have been reporte to have been disperse 1,243 miles (2000 km) by the wind.
