About Grumpy Gills Fungi

Grumpy Gills Fungi is a group of hobby mycologists with a passion for variety and diversity. Established in 2020, the group began the adventure by putting together a clean lab room to ensure our high quality standards are met and exceeded. All items sold are prepared in front of a laminar flow hood.

Grumpy Gills Fungi aims to facilitate the education of mycology and fungi-specific microscopy through providing water suspended samples, dry samples, pre-prepared slides, photos, resources, and “how-to-use” or “what-to-buy” advice for the home myconerd.

About Our Spores

We bring you access to diverse collection where you are sure to find something new. As new varieties are discovered, we will get them in. We work hard to provide you with the cleanest and highest quality samples we can. Our rare or new specimens are collected by professionals all around the world.

We explicitly purchase the spores from trusted traders throughout the globe and redistribute them to the community. Each syringe batch typically contains 2 prints worth of spore per 250ml. Every type of spore shows up differently, so some may look darker or more concentrated than others.
