'SPORE  BANK  LISTING'

ORDERING:

Write out a letter telling us what you want to order.  Always give Catalog Numbers and description of item.  Give Catalog Number and Species when ordering Mushroom Spore Print Samples.  When ordering give species name and catalog number. Overseas and "Out Of Country" orders should include an extra $10.00 for each entire order whether one or fifty samples are ordered. FMRC no longer takes Credit Card orders or any other online type payments.  This is because we discovered all of the records kept on such type sales.  We strive to protect our clients.  To do this, we only accept orders sent by postal mail.  Mail all orders with payment (Postal Money Order, one that is bought at your local post office, is best method of payment. Checks written out to FMRC must be drawn on a U.S.A Bank, and a 3 to 4 week waiting period is required to insure the check has cleared) to:

FMRC offers this mushroom spore collection for academic and mycological standard usage. FMRC is not a site that promotes any mushroom spores for growing poisonous mushrooms for any illegal drug use. It does not and never has, offered spore syringes or mushroom kits for growing any poisonous or psychoactive mushrooms. The MAIN purpose for offering these spores is to assist professionals and amateurs alike to be able to have a sample to compare with other mushrooms found. When compared to suspected found mushroom, a positive identification can be made. Mushroom spores can be compared to human finger prints. This service is also a needed part for standards used at Poison Control Centers and Emergency Rooms at hospitals in aiding with mushroom poisonings. Many of the Species carried here at FMRC, like "Mycorrhiza" types and others, cannot be lab cultivated.  Nor do we run cultivation trials on the thousands of samples we receive and hold.  Because of this, no growing claims for these types is given or implied.  But, many people report back great cultivation success stories, and that the "wild" strains they grew from our spores were much stronger than commercial strains that have been passed down for long periods of time.  Because so many of the spores deposited in FMRC's Spore Bank are collected from wild specimens, they have been exposed to the outside air and have different degrees of contamination.  Before inoculating onto sterile media, spores should be cleaned.  Using a syringe filter with micron filters to perform cleaning filtration, or some other tested method, should be used.   

It may be illegal in your area or State to possess certain species of mushrooms, even though they grow wild in the same said area or State! Some States have laws against even just having the spores produced by certain mushrooms. These are targeted at the ones that are capable of producing controlled substances.


Illegal Mushroom Spores exist in the States of CA, ID, and GA.   When ordering these said type of mushroom spores, you must give a legal shipping State in your shipping address.  We cannot ship these spores to the noted States.  Any item or spore sample is void if prohibited in your area. Customer agrees that no item or product offered by FMRC will be used in any illegal manner. Customer assumes all responsibility of any item they receive.


If FMRC suspects the illegal use of any of it's products, it maintains the right to refuse service. You must be 21 years old or older to order any poisonous or deadly (this includes "psychoactive") species. If you collect mushrooms from the wild and you are not 21, and want to have said type species available for Identification to prevent accidental ID, have your parents order these samples for you.

As all products offered by FMRC are for "In-Vitro research purposes only, FMRC waves all responsibility for any injuries or legalities incurred through the use or misuse of any products it sells. Some items, like specific species of mushroom spores, may be illegal to possess in your area. It is your responsibility to know your area's mushroom laws. Known illegal areas are not serviced. If you order an illegal item in your area, and FMRC was not aware of the law in your specific area, you take all responsibility for all problems, legal and others. When you make any order, you confirm and agree that you have read and understand all the information on our site, about the item you have ordered.  Make sure you want the item or items you order. Unless you receive the wrong item you ordered or the item has defects, there are no returns or refunds just because you suddenly changed your mind and no longer want the item you ordered. A Return Authorization (RA) Number must be made by customer before faulty or wrong item can be returned. Call FMRC, state the problem, and a RA Number will be issued. Include all parts and portions of the order, and display the RA Number on the outside of the returned package.

Spore print samples are usually on paper sealed in a plastic envelope. Samples contain plus or minus 10,000 spores. All spores are held in dry state just above freezing. Spores are offered mainly for microscopy and identifying purposes. Many times, from traveling through the postal system, spores may be knocked off paper. Because the samples are shipped in sealed plastic packets, spores will still be inside the packet, even when knocked off the paper. As many species listed are grouped "mycorrhiza" and cannot be lab cultivated, most species are collected from the wild, and FMRC has not run cultivation tests on said spores, no growing claims on any species is made, given or implied.

Within 30 days of purchase, you may request a replacement free and without any cost. Only one replacement is given. Mycologists and mushroom hunters alike from all over the world deposit mushroom spores here at the Florida Mycology Research Center (FMRC). This makes it possible for them and anyone else to have access to mushroom spores worldwide. Donors of acceptable mushroom spores are given free exchanges. You may pick a spore sample packet for each species you donate that is accepted. Donors are entitled to have their gift isolations free when they may again need them. Spore prints should be submitted on 8 1/2 X 11 inch paper. Paper should be proper color as to contrast the color of mushroom spores. White paper for black or dark spores, and black or dark paper for white or light colored spores. A cover sheet is then placed over the prints and affixed at the very top only by tape or staple. If at all possible, these prints should be sent unfolded. If you are able to collect 7 - 10 complete sheets of prints from a large fruiting you have found, you may submit these for entry into the mushroom journal "THE MUSHROOM CULTURE", The Journal Of Mushroom Cultivation (TMC). If accepted and used, you earn a year's free subscription to this Journal. If you have any psychoactive mushroom spore prints you would like to deposit, these will be placed in "TEONANACATL", The International Journal Of Psychoactive Mushrooms (TEO). If enough prints meet entry into this Journal, same FREE year's subscription. Otherwise, prints will enter Main Bank.

FMRC only lists the Gulf Coast isolation as this satisfies all identification purposes
for that species of mushroom found out in the wild or involved with mushroom
poisonings.  Although rare, different spore colors have been noted.  Also see "Hunting Down Psilocybe Cubensis" for Hybrid conditions.
 

The following is provided to perhaps help identify these types.  The Red Spore Cubensis .5 spores are the ones described in #14 "TEONANACATL" November 2005 Issue.
