50% Dextrose
    #2032749 - 10/22/03 04:35 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

A helpful hint :smile:

I notice that alot of times when attempting to do the Poor Mans Syinge Tek, a large amount of the injected karo water gets absorbed by the mycelia.  My solution to this "problem" was found when I was at the feed store gettign syringes. They sell a 50% dextrose solution that is sterile (the other 50% is just water).  IT is in one of the bottles that has a certain material as the lid, so you can jab a needle through there and not violate the sterility of the contents. 

My thought, if this is mixed with the proper amount of water, you've got you r10% dextrose solution.  buying 2 of these (A liter a piece) keeps ya supplied with enough, so to speak, precursor chemicals for your 10% dextrose solution.  Just boil up the right amount of water on the stove (to ensure sterility) suck it up in the syringe, then suck up some of the dextrose solution (which is already steril) to get to the proper concentration.  i'm sure it's much easier to do this other ways, but the joy of this is, when you are done, you are left with a 1 liter bottle that can have things injected into it, be sterilized in a PC, AND it's got the neat little stopper thing on it.

A 3-4% dextrose in the solution is more what you want....

IT could be thinned out with sterile water.

You can also make dextrose solution by dissolving one teaspoon of dextrose into 100 ml of sterilised water.
