LC Question
    #11270011 - 10/18/09 10:08 AM (8 years, 5 days ago)

Today I'm going to try making my first LC. I got some prints from a few members (thank you!) and I was wondering if I could just scrape some of the spores off of the tinfoil directly into the LC jars instead of loading them up into a syringe and injecting.

I've never done it, but if you use proper sterile procedures I don't see why it wouldn't work. Making a syringe first probably presents less contamination risk. You can give the spores a chance to rehydrate and inject through the lid. You also get better control over the amount of spores used.

It does work its just not suggested.  Too many spores plus its harder to be sterile when your opening the lid and shit

Thanks. I have one syringe but I'm not sure how sterile the metal tip is after using it multiple times. I flame sterilize it and swab it with alcohol before I put it away, but I always hear that a syringe should be replaced after so many uses.

yea i think spores into lc is a craps shoot.  I personally don't like taking chances, but I am sure there are ppl that will swear by scraping spores straight into an lc.  It's just something I wouldnt do
