  1.  Funghi-man has generously thrown up a cpl of prints for grabs (for microscopy etc) in the thread above, they're a lil older but that's cool, one is from 2018 so could still be microscopically viable, and the other is from 2013, might not be microscopically viable but still great to look at! :)

  2. Welcome back mate.

    Think I remember you.

    I recently returned also after a bit of a hiatus. Definitely a much quieter community than it once was, which is a shame.

    Will be doing some giveaways every now n again, in hope to further build back some community :shroomer:

  3. Right here,


    Cos Ive got a couple left over swabs up for grabs.

    3 singular swabs all up.

    All Ps. cubensis


    • x2 Jack Frost (tat x ape) swabs (All Gone!)

    • x1 PE#6 (PE x Texas) swab (All Gone!)


    x1 swab per mycological homeboy


    Take your pick


    Post here to claim so people know what has been claimed, then PM me where you want it sent.

    Do not PM me before you post here.


    These are strictly for microscopic/research/study purposes only.

  4. Hey all!

    I've got some extra Astrophytum capricorne seed leftover that I'm not going to sow for the year.

    So I've got x7 packets of x25 seeds for anyone who will sow & enjoy them.


    To claim a pack, just number off from 1 to 7 (so others know who's claimed a pack) and then drop me a PM with your postage deets.

  5. I used to say 'patch-annoy' and then someone told me "no, its actually pronounced 'pack-annoy'.

    Then years later an older Chilean cactiphile said to me "no, its pronounced 'pack-a-know-y".

    So that's how I now pronounce it.

  6. If its spore print, scrape spores carefully into a shot glass/egg cup or of the likes using the tip of a clean blade. Using a sterile syringe full of sterile water, shoot some water into the shot glass. Suck up the spores. You want to empty the whole syringe into the shot glass and suck the water back up trying to get it all back in.

    It's best done in 'one fell swoop'.

    It takes some practice to get the hand of it.

    If print is on foil, glass slide, or a petri dish you can shoot some of the fluid from the syringe back on to the print and into the shot glass, to get to the last of the spores.

    Once you're happy with the amount of spores you've captured in the syringe, you can empty it back into the shot glass, and then suck the multispore (MS) solution back into the syringe, do this a few times. 2 or 3 times will suffice. This helps to separate the spores as they love to clump together.

    You now have a multispore syringe :)

    Just keep in mind that MS syringes usually do carry a few contaminants with them.
