Few more questions
    #1038037 - 11/09/02 02:33 AM (14 years, 1 month ago)

Okay so my alligator started four cases of 1/2 pt. jars, and 1 case of quart jars for casings. (hopefully they turn out well). Anyways, my alligator is using 2cc for each 1/2 pt jar and 4cc for each quart jar, and so far the 1/2 pt jars are about 1/4 colonized. Five out of 48 got sacraficed to the contamination ferry and the rest are VERY healthy. So my question is.... are those quart jars bad to use because of how long they take to colonize that can lead to contamination?? Also, he's using ready-made solution. For each four spore prints my alligator is using about 6 syringes worth of sterilized water in a small tupperware style bowl with a cap. How long will the solution be good for?? He also bought some Dri-Right from Lowes, and was wondering if that's a good dessicant to use for drying mushrooms for future usage??

Thanks for the help again,

Sammy

So you are making spore solution and keeping it in tupperware? Seems like you are looking to grow green and not shrooms, I would think that the closed environment of a syringe would be better for keeping it sterile. How are you getting the solution into a syringe?

The caps were layed in the tupperware with a lid and a small wet paper towel to keep the humidity up in there. There were like five sporeprints the size of quarters in each tupperware container. I added 100cc worth of water in each container and poked a hole in the lid of the container. Then put tape over the hole so the spore solution does not have a chance to contaminate. When I need to innoculate.... then I peel the tape off and take the solution out. Simple as that.
