Comes with 10cc of Ban Hua Thai spores, an 18g needle to get your spores onto the slides, and an alcohol wipe so you can ensure that your microscope is super clean.
These are the first variety of Cubensis that I ever got a chance to look at under a microscope myself, and it started a weird old journey that has led me here. Wouldn’t have pictured that to be honest. I had fun making the art for this one, I wanted to use this weird chopped up kinda look, and changed the colours a bit. I quite like it. Obviously if you want the art, message me about it because I’d have to fold it up in the box which would wreck it, but I can just send you a PDF!
In the wild these grow pretty quickly and easily. How dare they! Don’t they know?! Spores mustn’t grow! Under the microscope, they look like spores, from a mushroom, because they are spores, from a mushroom.
Ideally, keep these Ban Hua Thai spores refrigerated, where they will happily last a couple of years. Don’t let them freeze though! Failing that, you can keep them in a nice dark cupboard where they’ll be just fine for at least six months. They’re pretty simple to store. You can even use them multiple times, just replace the needle cap back on (don’t remove the needle as that’s one more chance for contaminants to get in there), and the next time you go to use them, heat the needle up with a lighter until it glows red. Simple! You could even put them back into the supplied bag if that’s your jam.
All microscopy samples have been produced using a flowhood in order to make sure that what you see under the microscope is exactly what’s supposed to be there and nothing else – just premium spores!
