spore syringes and incubators...
    #1536788 - 05/10/03 12:34 PM (13 years, 11 months ago)

Not to sound like a complete newbie, but hell, I am. I've read all the FAQ's and I cant seem to find the answers to some questions:

Spore syringes have to be used all at once right? You can't use like half of it and keep the other half for the next batch...can you?

Should the water I put in my incubator be bottled as well to avoid contamination?

Thanks.

I know there's like zero chance that the water from the incubator might...somehow...come in contact with my jars, but better safe then contaminated....

You shouldn't have any problem saving part of a syringe full of spore solution as long as you didn't squirt it out of it's sterile environment (the syringe) and then put it back in. The only thing you should have to worry about is sterilizing the needle each time you innoculate.

I would always try to be as sterile as possible with everything that you do when growing mushrooms, so I would say yes, it wouldn't hurt.

You can reuse syringes over and over again. If there is still spore solution in them, just flame sterilize the needle and wipe it with alcohol.

As for the water in your incubator, add a small amount of bleach to prevent any bacterial growth. A friend likes to add between a 1/2 cup to a cup for each gallon of water.

thanks for clearing up the syringe issue.

the bleach is a great idea, very logical but it would have never occurred to me.
