Golden Teacher cubensis spores

Golden Teacher has been given its name, because of the gold/brown color of the caps. The Teacher part can be explained by the fact that is grows very easy and is good for beginners. Golden Teacher shoots out flush after flush of medium sized mushrooms, growing in large clusters. Potency wise it deserves a place in the higher regions. The Golden Teacher is a classic and will always remain being so. Very rewarding and grows on most substrate recipes.

Product Description

Golden Teacher magic mushroom spore vials are produced under sterile conditions and should be kept dark and refrigerated (2-8°C) to increase the shelf life of the spores.

Vial vs. Syringes

Spore vials are superior to the spore syringes in most fields. Get the best results when cultivating Golden Teacher magic mushrooms with this quality spore vial. Using spore vials will result in a higher success rate in the colonization and fruiting process.

Reasons to go Vial:

  • Longer shelf life than most spore syringes (2 years vs 6 months)
  • It's easier to get ALL spores out of the container. Plastic syringes are often charged with static electricity making the spores stick to them. Glass vials are never charged, so 100% of the spores will come out.
  • Works great with liquid culture growth media. Syringes can be prepared with a different solution, rendering any liquid culture medium unusable.
  • Spore vial solution has over a 1000 grow parts per milliliter, versus 500 g.p.p. ml or even less in most syringes.
  • Professional look and feel
  • Takes up less space
  • Easier to transport



  • 1x Glass Vial with 10ml Golden Teacher cubensis spore solution
  • 1x Sterile 10ml Syringe
  • 2x Alco Preps


Instructions to use a Golden Teacher spore vial

The vials have a cap with a circular rubber membrane. The rubber membrane, or septa, can be pierced by the needle of a syringe, but will stop any airflow, micro organisms or anything else to go through by itself. 

Shake the Golden Teacher spore vial vigorously to spread the spores evenly throughout the vial. Remove the protective stopper cap from the top of the vial and sterilize the septa with an alco prep. Unpack the sterile syringe and remove the protective cap from the needle. Insert the needle of the syringe through the septa.

The point of the needle should be submerged in the spore solution. Pull back the plunger of the syringe slowly so that the syringe will fill with spore solution. Just 3 milliliter of spore solution is needed to colonize 1 liter / 1.05 quart of substrate. After having filled the syringe with the required amount of spore solution, slowly take out the needle from the vial.

To proceed from here to the inoculation process, there are several methods to choose from:

Dropping the spore solution onto the substrate

After having prepared your own substrate or cakes, you can drop the Golden Teacher spore solution directly from the syringe onto this. Press the plunger slowly so that dropplets of spore solution will come out of the needle. Every dropplet that will be in contact with the substrate is a potential mycelium growth point. Spread out these dropplets over the substrate evenly to colonize the substrate with mycelium.

Injection through injection ports

This is almost identical as dropping the spore solution onto the substrate. Open the injection port by pulling back the port protection cap. Use a alco prep to sterilize the injection port entry. Pierce the opening with the needle. Now drop the spore solution evenly over the substrate inside the spawn bag or grow box. After the Golden Teacher spore solution is injected, remove the syringe and close the injection port with the port protection cap.

Liquid culture for faster colonization and stronger mycelium

When injecting the Golden Teacher spore solution in a 'bath of nutrients', such as the Liquid Culture Growth Medium, the spores will form into mycelium inside this liquid suspension. This is called liquid culture or LC for short. Liquid Culture Growth Medium itself can be used to inoculate substrate and cakes. Liquid culture growth medium has a higher success rate and will be much more reliable than trying to germinate the spores without the use of  LC. In short: Using LCs will increase the chance on mushrooms.

Note: The Liquid Culture Growth Medium will not work well with our spore syringes.

Study spores and research using a microscope

Seen from a scientific point of view; all Psilocybe cubensis are alike. But they do differ slightly in appearance and fruiting speed (phenotype). There are numerous Psilocybe cubensis that have different phenotypes. These different cubensis are not considered subspecies, but different strains. The Golden Teacher is a strain of Psilocybe cubensis.

The differences in phenotype can be seen with the naked eye, but the true beauty lies under the microscope. TThe wondrous world of the spores. Many of our customers are scientists, doing research on these differences in a homemade laboratory. After having prepared your microscope slide, drop some of the Golden Teacher spore solution on it. Cover the specimen with a microscope covering glass. The best magnification for Psilocybe cubensis and Panaeolus cyanescens spore research is a magnification of 1000x or higher.

The syringe and reusing it

After using the syringe to inoculate the substrate, cake, or LC  with Golden Teacher, you can reuse the empty syringe after you have sterilized the needle. This can be done with a spirit burner or lighter. Burn the needle by keeping it in the flame long enough to make it glow orange. Let it cool down before you insert the needle again. Instead of reusing one, you can also order a sterile needle separately.


Store the Golden Teacher vial in the refrigerator between 2°C - 8°C or 35°F - 46°F. Leave the 'septa protecting stopper cap' in place when storing the vial. After removing this protective cap, always sterilize the septa with an alco prep before you insert the syringe.

Golden Teacher spore vials can be stored this way for 2 year after leaving our warehouse.

Seems to be good product Review by Shroom Master From Finland
Didnt work as planned since my rye bag which I bought from different site was contamined. Quality product and fast delivery as always (Posted on 11/23/2023)
Great product Review by Dimitar
I can’t give less then 5 stars!
Me as a “new to mycology guy” had a great experience with the product! It is great choice for people like me, that want to start something from the beginning and even if they fail, they have more tries ! I recommend first to understand the differences between the content of the vial and Liquid Culture, as I mistaken it! The vial is full with spore liquid and not liquid culture, which is nothing bad! It is actually great to start some Liquid Cultures and reproduce ! (Posted on 4/4/2023)
Super GT Review by Oli
I like the liquid form of spores, just add it to the substrate. Very easy to work with.
I used Sterile Magic Mushroom substrate for p. Cubensis Extra Large.
GT started to grow fast (in comparison with B+).
Large mushrooms with the canon gold caps.
Had 3 big waves. (Posted on 11/3/2022)

I'd recommend you guys to anyone (Posted on 5/27/2022)
En attente Review by Hkfufu
Pour le moment le mycélium se développe à un rythme plus lent que ce que j'ai pu lire, mais il y a tant de facteurs à prendre en compte en dehors du flacon de spores lui-même....il manquait un sac de vermiculite à ma commande, il m'a été envoyé gratuitement dans les meilleurs délais. Je recommanderais à coup sûr.

Worth waiting for / Vale la pena aspettare Review by Lucio
GT is slower than other strains to colonize the substrate, so, I recommend building an incubator to keep the temperature steady and you'll see great results!

For my Italian friends:
GT è più lento di altri ceppi a colonizzare il substrate quindi conviene costruire un incubatrice per mantenere la temperature stable e ne vedrete delle belle! (Posted on 3/29/2021)
Unluckily no result Review by Alex
I tried to inoculate and followed the steps. There was little mycelium groth in both substrates but then it turned color. It was probably my mistake. I give it 4 stars because I am about to order again and try it once again, more carefully. (Posted on 11/30/2020)
Good quality! Review by Hizmo
I got this vial in a nice simple package, with superfast and discrete delivery. Inoculated BRF cakes with success, rye grain with super fast colonization, and prepared a lot of liquid culture, but still have 5 ml of spores solution in the vial. I think i can store this for a long time in the fridge now. I'll try to order a 3 pack of vial deal with different strains! I can only recommend this if u wanna start a mushroom hobby.

Fantastic :) Review by L
Had no issues with these spore vials, they've got an Incredibly fast delivery time too. I'd recommend you guys to anyone (Posted on 10/4/2018)
slower but worth it Review by Grant
Found GT slower to get going, both from inoculation to mycelium growth, but they are worth the wait. Had phenomenal results and an abundance of powerful tripping fruit. If you have to choose only one strain.. choose this. (Posted on 1/3/2016)
Note 1 Review by dr.Mycel
GT sind supoer pilze sie wachsen rasch und sind verdammt gross.mein grösster lag nass bei 27,5cm.ich kann die sporen nur empfehlen. (Posted on 8/25/2015)
Ein einfacher und belohnender Pilz Review by Rüdiger
Der erste Pilz bei dem ich große Erfolge feiern konnte. Golden Teacher ist ein sehr schneller, einfacher Pilz mit belohnenden Erträgen. Ich baue ihn immer wieder sehr gerne an, da er kaum Probleme macht, das Mycel teilweise nach 10-14 Tagen (bei PFTEK) alles überwachsen hat und dann gleich in die Growbox gestellt werden kann. Die Wirkung ist "normal", was sich durch die Dosierung natürlich steigern lässt. (Posted on 11/16/2014)
