Where Do We Source Our Spores From?
We source only the finest spores from the Netherlands and Austria, where it is legal to cultivate magic mushrooms. These guys have been growing for decades, so it’s safe to say they know their ‘shrooms. The spore prints and swabs we receive have been produced in sterile, professionally equipped laboratories that operate to the highest standards. This ensures quality genetic specimens for your microscopy research.
To ensure maximum cleanliness, all of our products are made in a clean air lab environment, fully kitted with 99.99% efficient high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filtration. This removes contaminants and particulates from the air, so that you can be confident that the spore sample you receive is as clean as can be.
We have spent years searching for the finest genetic specimens, the likes of which even Paul Stamets would be proud of. You can browse our full spore catalogue here.
How To Use Shakti Spores
When observed with the naked eye, spores do not look all that exciting. Certainly, nothing akin to being ‘magical’. The true beauty of the humble spore is in its microscopic size. The only way to observe the microscopic is, unsurprisingly, under a microscope. Preferably at least 500x magnification.
Apply a tiny spore sample onto a microscopy slide, and gently cover the sample with a covering glass. Place the microscopy slide onto the stage. Finally, look through the eyepiece and move the focus knob until the image comes into focus. If they still look tiny, try increasing to a higher power objective lens. Admire them in their glorious, magical detail. This simple process will give you hours of endless fun, we guarantee it (or your money back!)
For long-term storage, keep spore syringes in a dark place and preferably in a fridge at 2-8 ℃. They will last up to a year or more if stored correctly.
