I'd be happy if you could answer one question from beginner:)
    #11205894 - 10/08/09 07:40 AM (8 years, 15 days ago)

Hello dear mycologists,
I just received my spore print of 'Psilocybe cubensis mexican' (from fsre), I know how to make a spore syringe and so on but I have one problem...
I can't find any 240ml(8oz) wide mouth jars in my country.
So here is the question: is it a good idea to use 200ml glasses instead of jars? Or size matters that much?

Peace

Nah, use whatever you have.  I store prints in plastic sandwich bags.  I clean the outside of the bag, especially the seal, with rubbing alcohol inside a glovebox.  Then I open the bag slightly, inject sterile water from a clean syringe, rub the print with my thumb from the outside of the bag in the water, and then suck the water back into the syringe.  If it's really dark you can expand that syringe into several more.

Just be as clean as possible when making your syringe, however you do it.

If you are going to use glasses just be sure to make a good lid for them, usually out of a few layers of tin toil. The fact that they are smaller wont screw anything up, just be sure to adjust the amount of spore solution per glass accordingly.

drinking glasses are ok, the only trouble with them is that because the foil lids dont seal properly you can sometimes have too much gas exchange. Ive had quite a few jars pin invitro just aftter full colinisation that i put down to that.

Smaller jars work, infact i have seen some pretty impressive results from 1/4 pint cakes.

Mushrooms will be smaller, and so will yeild, but that reflects the smaller amount of food and water.

As long as the jars are as wide as they are tall they will be fine. Ive used drinking glasses that are taller than they are wide and they tended to stall neer the end of colinisation at the bottom.

Thanks guys,
So if ill use 200ml jars I should inject ~0.8ml-0.9ml of spore solution into each jar?
Ill still gonna search for those 8oz jars, btw, does anyone know a good site who sells jars and ships to Europe?

Peace

i wouldnt worry much about adjusting how much spore solution. 1cc per jar is fine. It can get tricky using less than 1/4cc per hole.

I've used just a very small amount on 1/2 pint cakes and they grew just fine, 1/2cc per jar. That was easier to do as i had used 3cc syringe which are thin syringes and thers much more travel on the plunger per cc than a 10cc syringe

Get plastic containers in your local supermarket.

Look for the symbol on the bottom

They are cheap, Can be PC'd & reused.
