Z-Strain Mushroom Spore Syringe Kit


When you buy Z-Strain spore syringes, be aware that they’re considered “active spores” which are for microscopy purposes only. DO NOT CONTACT US ABOUT ANYTHING REGARDING CULTIVATING OR GERMINATING ACTIVE SPORES. 

Shipping is unavailable to California, Idaho, & Georgia. These 3 states strictly prohibit the possession of spores from psilocybin and psilocin producing mushroom species. Orders to these states will be refused and voided. Any payments made for orders to CA, ID, or GA will incur a $5 cancellation fee. 

The provided images are for informational and educational purposes only and should only be used as a reference point. Images and spores are acquired from outside, trusted sources in a legal manner. We do not condone or participate in the cultivation of psilocybin or psilocin producing mushroom species. 

When you buy Z-Strain spores, visibility is dependent on the characteristics of the spores themselves. As a result, not all spore syringes will look the same visibly. Despite any visible differences, spore syringes are still viable for microscopy research. More information on how we make our spore syringes and possible visible differences, check out our FAQ or blog post How To Make Spore Syringes.

Z-Strain Spore Information

Z-Strain has quickly become one of the best commercially available varieties for any skill level and is highly sought after. To start, people found the first specimen of this variety growing on a pile of dung on one of the Hawaiian islands. From there, researchers took the specimen to a lab and they began working on isolating its genetics. This extremely popular strain is the result of their hard work. This is an excellent addition to anyone’s spore library.

Mycologist have been admiring the Z-Strain cubensis for some time now. The shape and color of the caps make many people think that they are Golden Teachers. But, this could not be any more incorrect. Z-Strain is very much its own unique individual. They have been know to grow very dense and tall towering over other mushrooms. Because of this, studying them is that much more interesting as people like to see what makes Z-Strain so different. In conclusion, Z-Strain is a must have for any collector.

We strive to provide you with the cleanest possible products. We make all of the Z-Strain spore syringe solution in front of Laminar Flow Hoods with HEPA filters. These HEPA filters have an efficiency rating of 99.97%. Meaning that the filter removes 99.97% of particles in the air. To make the actual spore solution, we take clean spores and mix them with sterile distilled water. Then, a magnetic stirrer properly mixes the solution to ensure an even distribution of spores throughout the solution. 

  • Ships next business day
  • Discreet packaging
  • Spore syringes remain viable for around 1 year
  • Store spore syringes in the fridge for best results

Medium Depositor- Specimens that produce nice medium sized prints averaging around 50mm give or take 10mm. Spore deposits may vary but average will be a nice visible print containing hundreds of millions of spores.

Research Difficulty

Easy- This variety is good for any level of researcher. Easy to study and use.
