What is the best way to view my spores with a microscope?
Microscopy spores are best viewed at 400X or greater magnification. Place a small amount of dried spores into a small amount of water and then place a small drop of the resulting solution on a glass slide and cover with a slip cover. Excess water can be absorbed with the corner of a paper towel to prevent the slip cover from floating. Pre-made spore solutions in the syringe kit w/ applicator can be conveniently applied directly onto the slide.

How do I grow these spores into mushrooms?
Please do not inquire about the cultivation of any Psilocybe or exotic spore strains as these are intended for educational and microscopy use only! References to cultivation will cause us to refuse you service so don't ask!

How can these spores be legal in the US when the mushrooms they come from are illegal in the US?
The mushrooms these spores come from are not specifically outlawed. It's the drugs Psilocybin and Psilocin within them that are scheduled drugs within the US. The spores, being microscopic in size, contain none of these illegal compounds making them legal to possess in all but a few states in the US.
