does anyone do this?
    #1875511 - 09/02/03 10:04 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

take a syringe that's got about half a cc left in it and suck up some sterile karo syrup solution into it so it's full.. would it be good?

In theory this sounds fine, I don't see any reason why this would be less sterile then the other way, or less succesful.

I don't know much about the karo syrup tek but im interested in trying it with the 2.5 ccs of EQ spores i have left. I'm sorry that I'm not answering your question but I see nobody has answered it so I'm bumpin it for ya! Good luck man. Peace.

i never heard of that or thought of it.

that seems like a great idea to me. basically make a new full syringe out of one that is nearly empty. double your syringe and not put yourself at such a risk of contams.

thanks for the idea bud. :smile:

My friend usually sucks a cc or two of sterile water into a just emptied syringe to get the last of the spores clinging inside. Using Karo water instead is a great idea.  :thumbup:

don't want to interupt such a great thread, but to take it a step further could one do the sterile karo suck up. then let colinize shoot, leave a cc or so in there, then suck up more karo and let recolinze and repeat over and over.

or is this flawed?

thanks for the great thread mushmaster!!

i think like any sort of mycellium transfer, you would eventually need to start over with spores because of the breakdown of the mycellium chain causing non-fruiting and such. From what i have been told anyways. but i am sure you could do it a few times anyway before that would happen

but how would you sterilize the karo? unless it comes out of the bottle sterile (which i doubt), i guess pasteurization would have to do.

errrrm....the same way the karo tek says to...or you could even bloody well microwave the mixture and suck it up into the syringe after its cooled.
