Sporeprint Questions...
    #1880982 - 09/04/03 01:41 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

I was recently reading an article on the ricecake method of cultivating "Shrooms" which included the process of making sporeprints. My first question is, how many sporeprints do you need per ricecake? I'm not sure whether it meant to use one spore print for every ricecake(12) or one for each.

The article also stated that you have to use a red hot sterile probe or knife to tap and scrape the spores off of their prints and onto their ricecakes. Wouldn't this method burn and or damage the precious spores?

Thanks,
ShroomNoob03

In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion.

no not at all, using a spore print you can create probably close to 5 or 6 syrines which will accomodate probably upwards of 60 rice cakes, do NOT use a red hot poker/nail to scrap off the spores, the idea is to heat the scraper up red hot to sterilize it, allow it to cool fully and THEN use it to scrape the spores into the sterilized water, and suck the spore water mixture up into a sterilize syringe. Read alot more before you attempt this or order a few syringes off of some of the vendors on the shroomerys site.

yeah or here's a link to lil kussh's syringe making tek that skips out a few steps to save you time and cut down on contams but it's only good for getting syringes and not a print.Prints have been known to last longer them syringes so you can try this tek out when you are making syringes but this tek isn't no good for making a spore print

I agree with Greg

Generally, do you know how long a print will last for?
