Introducing: "Pixie Packs" A new way of distributing spores.
    #2007598 - 10/14/03 06:15 AM (13 years, 11 months ago)

First take an ordinary drinking straw and heat the end, rotating it to melt it evenly around the edge untill it form a ridge of melted plastic all around the end.


Then crimp it together with a pair of pliers.



Blow into the end of the straw to make sure the seal is air tight and cut off about an inch or an inch and a half.



Do a bunch more. then put them in a jar and steam sterilize them just as you would a PF jar. Stand them up in a nice straight row and scrape enough spores for one syringe into each one.



Hold the straw so that most of the air is squeezed out and seal the other end with a clean pair of pliers that have been wiped with alcohol.



This should provide you with a nice flat package. If it does not remain flat, that is an indication that at least one of the seals is not airtight, but it should be OK.



Take a syringe of cool sterile water. Tap the Pixie Pack so that the spores fall down to the bottom of the straw, and then cut the top off with a clean pair of scisors. Squirt in a little water from the syringe, and suck it back up again. Shake the syringe and repeat untill you think you got most of the spores.



And there you have it, instant syringe. You can also use clear aquarium airline tubing instead of drinking straws if you want them to be nice and clear.

5 shrooms for you!  Not because I see it as being more convenient than a print, but because of the excellent name you came up with for it. :smile:

Well, water boils at 212, but whatever. Also, the whole idea of the PC, is that under 15PSI, water boils at 250.
I got all this info from this site, but what the fuck do I know?? I mean, we all learned that water's boiling point is 212 in 2nd grade, but maybe I went to a fictional school.
And I still think the plastic would melt.

Peace

They are steamed at 212'F. I haven't tested them in the PC. They handle boiling temps just fine.


Why would you PC a PF jar? Why would you even do PF tek if you have a PC?

AFOAF wanted me to relay a message to y'all:

Baby_Hitler: Awesome man, simply awesome. What do you think about this?

Innovation: Make a shitload o' the lil' straws, enough to fill the bottom of a 1/2 pint jar with them all standing open-end up. Steam-sterilize the whole thing. Then throw as many caps as will fit into your jar so their spores will drop into all the "pixie packs."

Before you remove the caps, cut a circle that will fit into your jar out of cardboard (or something semi-stiff) and coat one side with a thin layer of adhesive. Remove the caps and put your adhesive disc on the open ends of the straws. Let it dry and you've got hundreds of pixie packs ready for distribution.

I like the idea of printing the caps straight to Pixie Packs, but I'm not sure what you mean with the cardboard disk thing.

One good print should be enough for about 20 packs.

Another thing that could be done with these is to just hand them out at parties with instructions to come to the shroomery to learn what to do with them.

I like how they must be cut open to view the contents.

The main goal of the disk is to seal the many pix-pax all at once so as to reduce the time spent exposed to the atmosphere. Plus, it would keep the little fuckers manageable.

It's cool to come up with new ideas but it sounds like a hell of a lot of hassle.

Me will just stick to prints on glass slides or foil  :grin:
