Spore Prints with Parchment Paper Help
    #18034668 - 03/30/13 10:19 PM (7 years, 8 months ago)

I am trying to take prints to keep things going but last time I took prints, while most were successful some were not.

I enjoy using Reynolds parchment paper for this, when it does work I get jet-dark prints and most of the times the spores when fully dehydrated will crack cleanly off the parchment paper leaving little to no residue behind.

On the other hand, I have a few problems!

  • Often when I take a print, nothing at all shows. Did I harvest this mushroom cap too early before it began sporulation? Too late? Why is there no print at all?
  • Sometimes the print is too faint, you can't seem to see anything or gather any spores from the print.
  • Sometimes the parchment gets too wet or damp, and doesn't seem to be a good surface at all.
  • When conditions are perfect, the parchment seems to work very well!


Advice?

use heavy duty tin foil:shrug:
i often have caps that don't print, not much you can do about it
also prints can be a little damp when taken, just give it time to dry up before storing

It doesn't matter what i think of you...all that matters is clean spawn

I'm tired do me a favor
