“New Moon” Spores
What is “New Moon” ???
”New Moon” was invented a few years ago before I came to Earth’s Tongue LLC. It is a formula that I used in labs to help keep master cultures and spores alive in a sterile environment for longer periods of time, preventing other molds and bacteria.
Remember that even sterile hermetically sealed containers/media/bags/medical equipment and tools have an expiration date which means they are no longer sterile after that date. Lab professionals know that even the most sterile procedures in making a culture will eventually create bacteria. If a culture starts producing primordia the primordia produce bacteria, its just science. Well where does the bacteria come from?? It is created…”Life finds a way”
After years of working in labs transferring and re-invigorating cultures and at times dealing with contamination issues when I could less expect them or want them, I decided to create some kind of contaminant resistant liquid media to store cultures and spores in for prolonged use. Now I’ll go ahead and make it clear here that this does not mean that our “old school” style of spore syringes have a risk of getting to you contaminated. Absolutely not. All our spores are covered under our 100% guarantee, and you have an option of still picking the “old school” spores for those of you that have grown to love our old school syringes.
After testing different things, the “New Moon” concept came about.
Containing 5 key ingredients (not including spores).
About 99.9% organic and all lab grade ingredients that help stimulate and not harm, this formula can keep the spores sterile for a much longer period of time. In some rigorous tests I found that a “New Moon” syringe can actually be completely opened by pulling the plunger out the back, dumped in a kitchen bowl under a non-sterile environment and then poured back into the syringe and re-plugged and used without contaminants appearing on the substrate. (Do not attempt) At that point I decided to patent the concept and have been using it since on my own spore and culture syringes.
I have recently read in forums by skeptics that this is just a Gimmick or a Trick to make people think that they are getting more spores. This is Untrue. Humans often criticize what they cannot understand.
The “New Moon” has always been sold as a contaminant resistant spore syringe. Does it work? Yes, yes it does. Just ask people who have actually bought one.
*This does not mean that you can get lazy or clumsy with you sterile procedures!* It’s just a safeguard!
Now, as far as costs go, A “New Moon” syringe is more than 3 times as expensive to make as a regular spore syringe. Time involved in preparation and in the making process of the “New Moon” is about 5 times that of regular spore syringes.
So why do we sell them at the same price?… Well, To have the best spore syringes out there at an affordable price. Now based on other lab-work that I’ve done and charged for, I could reasonably price a “New Moon” spore syringe for as much as $75. Not for the spores (because the spores are cheap) but for the syringe itself and the ingredients. We sell them for the same price as our old school syringe. Originally thought as an introductory price only. Its popularity soon blew up and I decided to keep it at that extremely low price.
OTHER QUALITIES NOTICED:
*SLIGHTLY FASTER COLONIZATION TIMES
*HELPS PREVENT FOREIGN MOLDS AND BACTERIA ON SUBSTRATES AT INOCULATION SITES EVEN BEFORE MYCELIUM BEGINS TO GROW
So why is it called “New Moon”? Because of its radical change after you shake it. It turns completely black. So much so that no light can pass through it even if you hold it up to a light bulb. Just like our moon gets when it goes from full and bright to the new moon which is completely invisible in darkness.
THIS IS WHAT A JAR WOULD LOOK LIKE AFTER INOCULATION WITH A NEW MOON SYRINGE.
