Comes with 10cc of Natal SS 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.
Apparently (in the wild, etc etc) these colonise fairly quickly, and are “aggressive”. Not sure if that’s supposed to be a threat or something, but I’ve got loads of them and they’ve never given me any hassle so I think they’re probably just misunderstood. I saw one rip a phonebook in half once though. Maybe they just hate phonebooks? Well they’re called “Super Strength” anyway so they’ve gotta be pretty darned tough I reckon.
Once again, nice descriptive name, does what it says on the tin, check them out under the microscope, they bring these sick little squat racks and start getting in the reps to ensure that they’re in prime condition. One more bro! One more! One more still! One more again!
Ideally, keep these Natal SS 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!
