Syringe Preparation
    #1598014 - 06/01/03 12:44 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

Greets,
I was reading my MMGG last night and came up with another question. I've read posts here that discuss taking spores from a spore print, mixing with water, and viola, a spore syringe is created. Now, in MMGG the spores had to be grown on agar media, then that mycelia was used to innoculate sterile substrates. Is it possible to be self-sufficient with spores (that is, never having to order more spores) and not grow ever on agar culture? Could one just prepare a spore print, make into a syringe, and innoculate sterile jars from that?


thanks for the help

Jr

Yes, you can do what you described(innoculating jars from a syringe).

I think that the purpose of growing on agar is to identify the best genetic strains ("most" rhyzomorphic), but if growing mushrooms that have come from spore vendors, they have already had this done. Again, is it possible for someone to have a non-ending supply of spore syringes and never grow anything on agar?

I'm no expert but I believe that you have to grow out whatever strain of mush to maturity( open veil dropping spores) then take a spore print. Read the faq on making spore prints.
