Psilocybe Cubensis Spore Vial is produced under sterile conditions and should be kept dark and refrigerated (2-8°C) to increase the shelf life of the spores. Vial vs Syringes
Spore vials are superior to the spore syringes in most fields. Get the best results when cultivating Burma magic mushrooms with this quality spore vial. Using spore vials will result in a higher success rate in the colonization and fruiting process.
Reasons To Go Vial:
- Longer shelf life than most spore syringes (2 years vs 6 months)
- It’s easier to get ALL spores out of the container. Plastic syringes are often charged with static electricity making the spores stick to them. Glass vials are never charged, so 100% of the spores will come out.
- Works great with liquid culture growth media. Syringes can be prepared with a different solution, rendering any liquid culture medium unusable.
Spore vial solution has over a 1000 grow parts per milliliter, versus 500 g.p.p. ml or even less in most syringes.
- Professional look and feel
- Takes up less space
- Easier to transport

Instructions to use a Psilocybe Cubensis Spore Vial
The vials have a cap with a circular rubber membrane. The rubber membrane, or septa, can be pierced by the needle of a syringe, but will stop any airflow, micro organisms or anything else to go through by itself.
Shake the Burma spore vial vigorously to spread the spores evenly throughout the vial. Remove the protective stopper cap from the top of the vial and sterilize the septa with an alco prep. Unpack the sterile syringe and remove the protective cap from the needle. Insert the needle of the syringe through the septa.
The point of the needle should be submerged in the spore solution. Pull back the plunger of the syringe slowly so that the syringe will fill with spore solution. Just 3 milliliters of spore solution is needed to colonize 1 liter / 1.05 quart of substrate. After having filled the syringe with the required amount of spore solution, slowly take out the needle from the vial.
To proceed from here to the inoculation process, there are several methods to choose from:
Dropping the spore solution onto the substrate
After having prepared your own substrate or cakes, you can drop the ma spore solution directly from the syringe onto this. Press the plunger slowly so that droplets of spore solution will come out of the needle. Every droplet that will be in contact with the substrate is a potential mycelium growth point. Spread out these droplets over the substrate evenly to colonize the substrate with mycelium.
Liquid culture for faster colonization and stronger mycelium
When injecting the Burma spore solution in a ‘bath of nutrients, such as the Liquid Culture Growth Medium, the spores will form into mycelium inside this liquid suspension. This is called liquid culture or LC for short. Liquid Culture Growth Medium itself can be used to inoculate substrate and cakes. Liquid culture growth medium has a higher success rate and will be much more reliable than trying to germinate the spores without the use of LC. In short: Using LCs will increase the chance of mushrooms.
Note: The Liquid Culture Growth Medium will not work well with our spore syringes.
