flame sterilization
    #11253330 - 10/15/09 03:44 PM (8 years, 2 months ago)

I'm not sure what to use for flame sterilization. I have a propane torch would that be sufficient or does it burn dirty?

Although i may advise others in a general way regarding all types of mushroom grows, and may even post question from other forums about growing "active" mushrooms, i only grow non-"active" mushrooms and edibles.

I use a propane torch and it works perfect. Zero contamination yet.
I wipe the residue with a paper towel wet with rubbing alcohol to clean off the black residue from the needle tip (possibly an unessesary step), but I like the hiss sound the needle makes as it cools on the alcohol wipe.

Im not a fan of touching the needle with anything after its been flamed red hot. After the needle glows red its not of any use to rub it with alcohol

I rub it with alcohol after im done all my innocs to keep it clean

After I flame the needle, I cover it with a piece of alcohol soaked sponge. Then I just push the needle though the sponge on each inoculation, re-covering the needle with the sponge between shots. Works for me.
