How to Use a Psilocybin Spore Syringe

A Psilocybin spore syringe is a tool central to the cultivation of mushrooms. These syringes contain a solution of sterilized water and spores of a specific mushroom species (typically P. Cubensis). Spore syringes allow for more precise and controlled inoculation of substrates, as opposed to dropping spores onto a surface and hoping for the best. They also help reduce contamination and debris from a surface, which could otherwise interfere with your research results.

The syringe is sealed with a cap that has a Luer lock, which you will need to detach in order to use it. You can do this by holding the syringe with one hand while using your other hand to unscrew the lock. Once you remove the cap, you will be able to insert the sterile needle that is included with your syringe into the lock. Once the needle is attached, you will need to shake the syringe to ensure all of the spores are properly dispersed and to hydrate them.

Once the syringe is ready, you can begin inoculating your substrates. If you are working with a jar, you will need to puncture holes through the lid that are usually covered by tape and a plug of some kind, or you may simply remove the cap altogether. You will then pierce the microporous tape or remove the plug, and squirt a small amount of spore solution into each jar. Leave the jars in a warm and dark place to colonize, and after a few days you should begin to see white patches of mycelium growing on the surface of your substrate.
