getting more mileage out of spores
    #11216336 - 10/09/09 06:00 PM (8 years, 9 days ago)

Hey guys!  So i've just set out on my maiden voyage into mycology, 20 pf jars, all looking good so far!  I'd like to be able to inoculate more for my next batch without having to buy more spore solution though.  I've heard a couple people mention "LC Karo Water" which sounds like exactly what I need.  Could someone please give me a overview of what this stuff is and how you prepare it? I havent been able to find any teks on it that were noob friendly, thanks!

follow this tek http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php/Number/5874305#5874305 but instead of using tissue from a mushroom just inject some spores from your syringe into it

Or make up a WBS jar or rye let it fully colonize then inject sterile water into the jar swirl around and suck the water back up

is very easy i just did like three... get karo and some jars  poke a hole in the lid you want 4% karo to water I.E.  96ml water and 4ml of karo.  put in microwave for 5 mins or in pc for 15-20.  i suggest the pc.  then inoculate as normal but microspore tape on hole and wait

Its 4 grams of karo or honey to 100ML of water PC or steam in a pot but i would recommend not using a microwave

For 100mls of LC I have used 1/2 a cc to 1 whole cc. If your only making up 100 mls then I would use 1/2 a cc is more then enough I find

Yea and when you get into grains you can do G2G, or make myc syringes using colonized WBS or rye grain possibilities are endless

If you've already inoculated 20 jars, I'd wait. You're already going to get 3 or 4 flushes out of each successful jar. So far I'm batting at 100% success with all of my jars. I've also gone and done a 2nd round that's 2 wks apart.

You can simply take spore prints and make syringes if you're looking for the cheapest method. LC is great and I'm going to eventually learn more about it, however from what I've read its best use is for speeding up the colonization process. Yeah it'll give you more 'miles' out of your syringe, however you'll eventually have to resort to buying a larger gauge syringe unless you keep a vigilant eye on the mycelium and break it up with a marble or piece of glass.

Just food for thought. Either way, the shittiest part of this sport is the waiting and LC or not, you're going to have to suffer sitting through waiting for colonizing no matter what method you choose. :frown:

I encourage you to make spore prints for trading on the site. :smile:

I find its totally worth it to mix up a lc its easy and once done colonizing you have crap loads to work with and it dosent take up a syringe. just store it in a baggie in a fridge its like having a back up  incase you cant get a clean print yourself for some reason

Yeah the waiting part does suck.  My current batch got .5 cc's in 2 holes.  I was thinking the incubation phase might be shorter if i used LC and injected into all 4 holes next time.

Oh  if you used 4 holes and a LC you would see a dramatic increase in colonization speed. Just use 1/4 cc in all 4 holes.
