Help with spore printing
    #1612437 - 06/05/03 07:42 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

I just tried to make a spore print on an index card. The index card was baked at 475 for 15 mins. The card turned brown. When I put the cap on the card the paper was soaked with purple liquid. The liquid has made a circle on the paper that is bigger than the glass. I really don't think this is normal. What did I do wrong and how can I fix it?

Use tin foil as your print paper

Why did you Bake the card?  There is no serious need unless you wipped your butt with it :smile: hehe j/k!  If you dont use foil, you can use wax paper, glass slides, plastic.......etc.  For extra precaution just swab the foil with alcohol.  GL

There is no need to sterilize index cards or foil just use as is...

Are you sure psilocybin? I mean, when it's time to scrappe a print, who want foil with unwanted contaminants on it? I mean, even if foil comes new directly out of the box, what proves you it's clean enough?

Anyways, no need for a debate. I just wipe mine with alcohol. Useless or not, it's 5 sec more in preparation time.

So it is OK that there is a lot of liquid? Would it be ok to move the caps to foil?

your caps rotted my friend...
throw them away....

next time, find a sutiable container (a tupperware thingie works fine)
swab the inside with lysol or Et0h.
swab the index card with lysol or Etoh
place cap on top of card (using pin)
place a filter material over the tupperware (i cut a hole in the lid and used tyvek)
place the whole sucker in the fridge overnight....
that should keep the cap from rotting away and leaving slime all over your card...

or u could forget about the lid and the tyvek and just place a paper towel over the lid of the container and leave it somehwere high and dry.
the cap will shrivil up and dehydrate, but not leave slime cuz the paper towel allows it to breath and soaks up the moisture...

either way has worked fer me  :grin:

bullshit.
mushrooms are 90 percent water.
the card most likely acted as a wick.

use foil next time.

So are the prints with purple juice on them any good? If I use foil will the liquid just dry out and leave the spores? Thanks to everyone that has helped.

>So are the prints with purple juice on them any good?
i dunno, i'd have to see it.

>If I use foil will the liquid just dry out and leave the spores?
if moisture still is the prob, remove the cap from the print and
place the glass what-have-you back over the print, it should dry.

>Thanks to everyone that has helped.
:wink:
