Do any of you experienced fungi growers see any problems
with this plan?

Order a few spore syringes of "golden teacher".

Prepare/starilize a finely blended mix of cow dung, bird
seed, and brown rice.

Put steril growing media in a steril envirenment, keep
humid at 85`F

Impregnate the media with the spores, wait till fully

Pick fungi and put in sealed container above calcium
chloride untill dry.

I know I left out some details but am I headed in the right

Why are spore prints more expensive and always sold out
before sryinges?

ya I think your headed in the right directions, I'd take a look at that website Rhodium suggested if you haven't already

make sure you sterilize the fuck out of it , bird seed needs heat and pressure to sterilize the inside of the grains,
use pressure cooker
85 may be a little high i'd go with upper 70's low 80s you have a hygrometer right? if you don't, get one.

spore prints contain a whole lot more spores than pre-made syringes, transferring prints into syringes isn't for the newbie, in some cases people just scrape spores onto they're  casing medium and mix it up.

p.s you can get a electric thermometer / hygrometer at a certain shack that starts with a R for around 20 bucks
