Thank you so very much for the support! Check out answers to some common questions below. This page is a work in progress, so check back for more info and treats!

Storing Syringes

Syringes can be kept in room temperature, away from light and heat, for at least 6 months without signs of degrading, but are BEST stored in the refrigerator for long term preservation. If stored in the fridge, you’ll likely be able to pass them onto your great grandchildren!

What are these floating black specks?

Those are the magnificent sacred spores you’re eyeing! If you can see ANY tiny black speck, that’s a cluster of literally thousands…sometimes tens or hundreds of thousands of spores clustered together! This happens upon settling. Give it a hardy shake before starting your studies to be sure they’re evenly dispersed.

Why don’t I have floating black specks?

Spores are truly microscopic. It is impossible to see individual spores (not clumps of spores) with the naked eye. Each syringe has a TON of spores, even when the solution looks completely clear. When a batch of syringes are made, we use a stir plate to homogenize the mixture. Depending on how the spore print dried, it may be slightly flaky and not mix as easily. These are all valued and viable spores, they just look different in the syringe 🙂

It’s a hot one, Milly. Not sure if they’re gonna make it…

Totally understand. I have my doubts too, but it always seems to work out. I’m shipping from Hot as Hades, TX and did an experiment. On a 100 degree day, syringes were left in my black metal mailbox for 5 hours and that was the point in which they reached 100 degrees in the syringe. When left in the shade for that same 5 hr block, it only reached 89 degrees. While neither of these temps are ideal for spores, they don’t start to die off until 121 degrees. Still get them inside ASAP! But you should be fine.

What if my spores or culture is in fact inactive?

That’s always a possibility, and I do everything in my power to make sure they arrive clean and viable. On occasion, things just don’t work out as expected. Whether at the fault of you, me, hot transit, or just plain bad luck, I’d be more than happy to send a replacement on the house. My mission is to make sure you’re successful in your studies, and we’ll make that happen one way or another! Just hit me up if you have ANY issues whatsoever.
