How difficult is it to make a print and how much should I worry about contamination when doing so? I normally would regenerate mushies by cutting off the head and placing this into a sealed and sterilzed mason jar. Then I would just leave that in the terrarium. Doing this doesn't work as best as I'd like it because I don't really get a good spore count. I think that is because the jar is sealed and humidity builds up. I don't know, I'm just paranoid about taking a cap out of the terrarium, putting it on a piece of tin foil covered by a glass is going to get me a whole of the green and shit damn, I've been getting a lot of green lately.

thanks for the info....

Wipe the foil good with 91% isoprophyl alcohol, same with the glass. Harvest the mushroom, pull away the veil in your glove box. Put the shroom down on the tin foil, then the glass on top. Leave it in there. Voila!

The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few, or the one.

you might also want to wait to remove the cap from the stem until you see spores on the stem and/or veil
