shitty spore syringe.
    #1877891 - 09/03/03 04:46 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

ok, so i go out and buy a retail spore syringe locally for fucking $40 CAD. i bring it home and i see that there is both an air bubble in it and some liquid in the needle cap. WTF! assuming its totally fucked, how do i remedy the situation? do i just straight squirt it in my substrate? huck it? go agar first to check for contams? like, whatdoido? maybe this is a newbee question, but... idunno. i dont wanna think that i just bought a tube of feces for $40, yaknow?

or am i just a worry wart?

Some vendors out air bubbles in their syringes so you can shake them. There is nothing wrong with this. I've also seen a little water drip into the cap before. It's probably fine, as long as it's not a lot of water. This is all perfectly normal.

a friend got the exact same thing...and on top of that...about 3ccs of solution had been squeezed out and the package was soaked in it...
evidently it didn't affect the quality of the spores...

I dont know what everyone else in this thread is talking about, but my iguana got an air bubble and some seepage in her first syringes! Things turned out GREAT. The spray may have come from pressure change in transit, did it go through the air? did it come from the mountians and you in the plains? The squirt could come from any change in pressure. you would have to suck a little air in the syringe yourself to make sure the spores were spread out in the syringe. But wouldn't you rather the bubble come from the vendor than yourself? I mean if you are planning on looking at P. Cubensis spores under a microscope :wink: wouldn't you rather the air come from a more reliable source than yourself? Meaning would you rather someone who knew what they were doing do it or would you rather do it yourself?

ok ok , i guess im just pissing my pants over nothing. 40 CAD made me wanna puke, but hey: itll B fine, right?

but you say i should squirt in a whole mL? thats a whole lotta spores! i know that there is a low 'germination' rate, but do i really need that much? of course, once i get colonisation -> spawn/mycelium syringes and all that, but really! that means my jars will each have $4 worth of just spores in them.

*sigh*

i suppose i DID pay way too much but...

since your beating yourself up way too much about how much you spent ont eh syringe, once you get a batch of jars colonized-whichever way you want and with however much innoculte cause it all works in the end, just slower- then do a grain to grain transfer. if you are doing grains then just do 6 jars your first batch with 1cc in each and in 2 weeks or whatever take your fastest growing jar and do a grain to grain transfer with another 12 jars that you have ready to go a couple days after the first btach is 100% colonized. if you do a btach every 2 or 3 weeks you will never have to innoculate with spore water again.

If you're really worried,  :syringe:  a couple cc's into a prepared kayro/honey TEK jar and find out for sure. The worst that could happen is you lose a couple of cc's of solution, and given that, a whole syringe. The best is you'll get is a whole shitload of ready-to-go mycelium :smile: and the worst is a shitload of infected jar(s) bag(s). But that's MUCH better than losing your jar/filter bag(s). Peace, Flux - "FUCKER"
