Panaeolus Bisporus Spore Print
Panaeolus Bisporus spore print offered for experienced mycologists. Spore prints are extremely hard to handle without contaminating. We recommend our spore syringes for safer storage.
How are spore prints made?
- To take a spore print, cut the stem off a mushroom and place the cap gills-down on a piece of foil, paper, or an index card.
- Add a drop of water to help release the spores, then cover with another object like a paper cup or glass.
- Leave for 2-24 hours to allow spores to fall and create a spore print pattern.
- Be sure your work environment is completely sterile and free of contaminants.
Panaeolus Bisporus Mushrooms
Panaeolus Bisporus mushrooms are also known as Panaeolus copelandia. The use of Copelandia has since been deprecated. When observed under a microscope it is quite similar to P. Cyanescens or P. Cambodginiensis. The only true distinction being its two spored basidia. Fruiting bodies change from dark coloration to lighter brown colors upon maturity.
