Panellus Stipticus Spore Print
Panellus Stipticus spore prints are great for experienced mycologists. Spore prints are extremely hard to handle without contaminating them. We recommend our 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.
Bitter Oyster Mushrooms
Bitter Oysters are a widely distributed bioluminescent mushroom species. They grow naturally in North America, Europe, Asia and Australia. Strains from eastern North America produce the most light. Bitter Oyster mushrooms are non-toxic. As a result of their luminescent properties, they taste quite bitter.
