Is this syringe contaminated? Micron Magick please respond 2
    #1712116 - 07/13/03 07:41 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

I got this syringe from Micron Magick. It's hard to see in the pic, but the spores are wrapped up in this white cottony stuff. Is that normal. The other syringe I got from T.H.E. didn't have this.

I love shrooms!!!!!

Something germinated inside the syringe, that's not normal.
Contact the vendor.

This is mycelium,some of the spores germinated, this happens sometimes.
They should be ok.

Ok Anno, i know what you mean. The whole problem will be when trying to use the syringe, if the clumps get stuck in the needle it ain't going to be pretty.
Shouldn't destiled water be used to prevent such thing ? I mean, i see mycelium germinating in the presence of organic or mineral material, correct me if i'm wrong.

It should.

Yes, but not always. Sometimes spores will germinate even in pure distilled water. I have no clue why, but it happened to me in the past.

As for clumps, sure it could happen that they clog the needle, but if you give it a proper shake before inoculation, the clump should fall apart into manageable pieces.

I think if I had it i'd still use it. That means the mycelium your innoc'ing is so good, it'll even form in just water.

That's my logic. It might not be the juicy rhizomorphic mycelium though :frown:.
