new syringe tek?
    #2188004 - 12/18/03 04:01 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)

yes, ive read the faq and i know the usual teks to make syringes, dont sling that at me again...

but when i was opening a print today, i noticed when it was about halfway open, it made a little pouch. i had an idea, i took my syringe of sterile water, squirted some of it in the pouch and sucked up a decent spore solution. the pouch only held about 3cc's, but it was very spore rich, so when i sucked it back up, it was plenty for the syringe.

the process was quick. open, squirt, suck. it took all of 5 seconds.

multiple syringes can still be made as only some of the spores will come off the foil each time.

to do it, make sure youve got your syringe of sterile water and print handy. use sterile precautions.

imo, this is much safer and definately quicker than conventional methods. anyone else ever done this?

Its cube season on the gulf coast.

Whats more natural than a man going out and collecting medicines?

I like to take the heavenly route to hell.

Well, it's not 100% sterile, but some have made hundreds of syringes with less than 100% sterility with great results. If your previous method is scraping the spores loose, putting into an open container and shooting water from several syringes then sucking back up - I'd say at least the first couple of syringes (using the method proposed) would probably be more sterile than before and certainly no LESS sterile.
If it works for you, it doesn't matter what anyone else things. Try the syringe, and then you'll know for sure. Come to think of it, this could help salvage the spores that want to stick to the foil.
Could come in handy if you're short on spores. I've done worse.

I don't really know anyone who grows mushrooms. I just come here for fun.
