Spore syringes are frequently used for any kind of mushroom strain. In order to use them on various substrates, Sacred Mushroom Spores distributors remind us that it is essential to create a thoroughly clean, sterile environment. These spore syringes typically come ready to be used. In case they are stored in the fridge, you need to take them out 12 hours before using them at room temperature.
Substrates are the material where mushrooms can grow and establish their mycelium in. It is this substrate that ensures the nutrients for the mushrooms. The type of substrate depends on the exact type of mushroom. So in order to get the best results, it is important to use the right kind of substrate for your mushrooms.
At any rate, a substrate should have 1 or 2 percentage of nitrogen. A good substrate is rich in materials such as hemicellulose, cellulose and lignin. We should note here the fact that these elements contain a high amount of carbon, which is the mycelium’s main source of food.
Moreover, a healthy substrate should contain phosphorus, magnesium, calcium and sulfur. The pH level of your substrate should be around 5. The substrate should also have a proper structure, in order to facilitate the air exchange.
